Spring Deco Mesh Wreath Ideas
How To Make A Spring Deco Mesh Wreath
I love making wreaths with deco mesh! They have so much movement and volume that they look impressive and really stand out on someone’s front door.
The secret that only wreath makers know is that deco mesh wreaths are actually incredibly easy to create. In fact, I made a show-stopping spring welcome wreath with deco mesh, and it took me less than an hour.
As you continue to practice and make more wreaths out of deco mesh, you will learn habits and processes that will speed up your time too.
My favorite thing about this wreath is how perfectly all the layers look together. Since the welcome sign in the middle has a lavender font, I used that same color mesh throughout the greenery.
There is also a lot of room for customization and creativity! Attach a hand-tied multi ribbon bow to the wreath, use the bow instead of the sign, or use them both. It’s all up to you, and I’m happy to show you how to make it both ways.

Attach The Mesh To The Wreath Frame
Begin by securing the deco mesh to the inner frame of the work wreath. Use the twist ties to hold it.
Then, create 10-inch loops in between each twist tie, securing and twisting the mesh to the frame as you work your way around it.
Do this all the way around the inner wreath frame.
When you are finished, go back and “poof out” the mesh loops you attached to the frame. They should be super poufy and have lots of volume.
Loop Mesh Around The Outer Ring
Without cutting the mesh, continue to add 10-inch loops to the twist ties around the outer ring. It is the same exact process as before.
Make the same 10-inch-long loops and use the needle ties to attach them to the wreath frame.
After you tie the mesh to the last twist tie, trim the mesh from the bolt and hide the tail inside the wreath.
Attach Ribbon Streamers
Now you are ready to attach the ribbon streams to the wreath. I used 13-inch long ribbon streamers in various green and lavender patterns that go with the same lavender shade as the deco mesh.
Layer a thinner ribbon on top of the wider ribbon, fold them in half, pinch them in the middle, and add them to the wreath. Twist the ties around the middle of the streamers until they are nice and secure.
Then, pull the streamers apart, so they aren’t laying directly on top of each other anymore. Adding ribbon to deco mesh wreaths adds so much color and texture – don’t you think?
Add Greenery And Flowers (Optional)
For this step, I suggest hanging the wreath on a wreath easel or door so that you can see where you want to place the flower picks.
Choose your favorite greenery and floral that match the colors in your mesh, ribbons, and sign.
Depending on how big you want your wreath to be, trim them pretty short so that they don’t stick out too much from the wreath.
Go around the outer edge of the wreath, and then keep adding greenery and floral until you work your way to the inside of the wreath.
Make A Hand-Tied Bow
At this point, you can stop and call the project finished. Or, you can make a hand-tied bow and add it as a second focal point. Have as much fun and be as creative as you want.
