DIY Valentine's Day Mesh Wreath All From the Dollar Store!

I love making deco mesh wreaths, but I love them even more when I can get all the items cheap. I found my wreath and deco mesh at the dollar store and the little decorations I had at home, but you can easily find a little sign or something at the dollar store as well.
You can get my full DIY here.
Head to the dollar store and grab a heart shaped wire frame, 2 rolls of deco mesh, a little sign or decor and white pipe cleaners (not pictured). The deco mesh sold at the dollar store is shorter rolls with less on them, so if you have a full size roll you will not need as much.
Cut a few of your pipe cleaner into 4 even pieces to get started. You can either attach the pipe cleaners to your frame about 4-6" apart or you can attach them as you go along - it's up to you what you feel more comfortable with.

To start attaching your mesh, gather together the ends of the deco mesh and wrap the pipe cleaner around the frame and the mesh. Move down your frame about 4-6" and in a zig zag type pattern, again gather the deco mesh and attach it with a pipe cleaner, but leave the deco mesh to bunch up a bit in between each pipe cleaner to make it look full. Moving around the frame, gather together your mesh and attach it to the frame again with a pipe cleaner another 4-6" apart. Continue doing this working your way around the frame as many times as you need to filling in all the bare looking spots until it's as full as you would like it.
Notice how it's getting fuller as I work my way around. I ended up going around my wreath frame about 3 times - using up both small rolls of my deco mesh.
Then I attached my little sign with hot glue. My little sign was very thin and light, so if your sign is a bit heavier you could attach it with wire or fishing line.
This is the other wreath that I made since a friend liked the other one, I gave it to her and needed to make myself one. I made my sign 2 lovebirds live here with a piece of leftover wood and painted on the words. I attached the birds and the sign with some thin twine.
