I bought the wreath forms at Dollar Tree to make these three similar but different Christmas wreaths.
I had some deco mesh and some tulle on hand so there was no additional cost for me.
Total Time: 6
tulle on a roll
3 21 inch wreath forms
Using the deco mesh (and I only had a few feet), I cut it into strips and then decorated each of the three wreaths using the strips. With one I used several narrow strips and placed them crosswise to form kind of a bow. With another one, I twisted the deco mesh into two rounded shapes to resemble a bow. With the third one, I knotted the deco mesh onto the wreath frame, one on one side and one on the other. This is where you can use your imagination and I found that the deco mesh was easy to twist and turn and shape. I used some of those green produce twistie ties from the grocery store to attach the mesh to the wreath form.
The remainder of the wreath was filled up using 8 inch lengths of white tulle from a roll of tulle. Each wreath took about 120 to 130 lengths. To fill the wreath form with the tulle, you fold the rectangle in half and slide it under the wire base. Pull the two ends into the circular opening at the top of the wire base and pull through forming a knot. Continue doing this all the way around the wreath on each row. For mine, I was able to skip one of the rows because the tulle seemed to hide it.
Last, I trimmed the tulle to make it look more uniform. Using a hot glue gun, I glued different embellishments to the three wreaths. Bows, greenery, pine cones, etc. give it a nice touch.
