Simple Spring Mesh Wreath

April 15, 2014

[pinterest]I was at Michaels the other day and I saw these pretty Easter wreaths made out of mesh fabric:

They were very pretty but cost $50.00 each!

Remember this burlap wreath I made last Fall?:

It was so easy and I got a lot of compliments on it. Since I had made the burlap wreath, I thought the mesh wreath should be fairly easy also.

I was happy to find at Michaels  a metal wreath that already has the twist ties attached. Much easier to make a wreath!

I used about one and 1/2 large rolls of mesh fabric and one small roll. The wreath was $6.00 and the rolls were on sale at $5.00 each.

First, tie end piece to wreath:

Then slide your hands down about 10 inches of fabric then gather together accordion style:

Attach the gather to the wreath using the twist ties:

I worked along the bottom ring first, then moved up to the inner ring.

A little hint is that it is easier to work if you put the wreath on the table and the roll of fabric on the floor:

When you think the wreath looks full enough, puff up each section!:

You can add a bunny or some Easter eggs or anything you like. I just wanted to add a happy Spring bow on mine:

I like simple and pretty! Happy Spring everyone! I think it is finally here.
