Learn how to make a gorgeous fall wreath LIVE this Saturday at 10 AM EST!

Lets get started;
Begin by placing three pipe cleaners in each of the 6 sections. What I do is place one in the middle of the two inner rings, and them two on either side of the outer two rings. I like to use two ringe because it helps to support the pipe cleaner and stabilize it.
Here's what it looks like with all 18 pipecleaners on the wreath. You can buy these premade, however they can get pricy.
Next cut 15 inch strips of the mesh, and gather together to create a bow tie or ruffle. Place on in each of the pipecleaners.
Here it is placed in the pipe cleaner.
Once you have the entire wreath covered in Mesh, add little clumps of raffia to each section.
Here's what the wreath looks like with the mesh and raffia.
Next add your desired ribbons. I cut my 2.5 inch 10" long, and my 1.5" 16 inches long. I created a little loop with the 1.5" ribbon.
Here's how I created the little loop. Simply pinching a small central loop.
Once all your ribbons are in place, fluff them and spread the loops and tails a part.
At this point, feel free to remove the pipe cleaners or bend them back into the wreath. I used beige so they would not stand out against the mesh.
Voila! A gorgeous wreath you can display through Thanksgiving.

  • Cheryl Reiller-Sutton on Nov 15, 2020

    I love this wreath, but quick question. At the end, when you attached the ribbon, do you rely solely on the pipe cleaners to hold them on the wreath? Or do you have to attach the ribbons together first? Thank you

    Very nice. I think it would look good with less ribbons. The mesh is pretty by itself if it's full enough with just a few added decorative things/ ribbons, picks etc. Lot's of choices for Christmas.

    How beautiful. I love everything about it Polka dots, ribbon, and the sign just tops it off. Everyone has their own opinion, and that's fine but the old saying is "If you can't say something nice, then don't say anything"! The greenery die's then what, $45 down the garbage can!! The ribbon wreath you can keep and use next fall. Good job Nick.

    You did a beautiful job! You can get a lot of the supplies at the Dollar Tree. If they don't have them in stock, check them online. I made an Easter one fairly inexpensively, compared to what they sell for.
