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.

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.
