DIY Valentine’s Day Deco Mesh Wreath Tutorial
Let me start off by saying that I am NOT a very crafty person. Whenever I have tried to do a craft before, it either didn’t come out the way it was supposed to or I gave up because I just couldn’t do it.
The first time I saw one of the deco mesh wreaths was when we went to Walter’s Pumpkin Patch. They had a little store, I thought it was the cutest thing. I also thought to myself “wow, that’s a lot of money”! So, I took some pictures of it so I would remember it and hopefully come across one again and maybe I could figure out how it was made.
So, around Christmas time, I had seen a few of the burlap wreaths floating around on some blogs. I read the posts about how it how made and even gave it a shot. However, mine looked nothing like it and I got very frustrated….so I took everything back to the store. I vowed I would never try another craft again.
That is until I saw a couple tutorials on it. These wreaths were done totally different than the one I had tried to do. Even though it was similar, this one looked a lot easier. After watching a few different videos, I came to find out that there were different ways and I had tried the harder version. Hobby Lobby, here I come!
I am going to show you just how easy it is to make a Valentine’s Day Deco Mesh Wreath and if I can do it…..anybody can!
Lets take it from the top:
I bought supplies for 2 wreaths along with extras because I wasn’t sure what I was going to use. They had some good sales at Hobby Lobby and I got most of the items for a steal!
You can rotate top to bottom or do the outside first or the inside first. Whatever way you like. I rotated top to bottom at first but didn’t like the way it looked. I took it apart and started over. I did the bottom first then then the top. I also found out that if I had too much space between bunchings, you couldn’t tell it was a heart shape.
Add second color randomly. There is no wrong or right way to do it. Add as much or as little as you want.
I was able to stick the tinsel right through the heart to attach it. You can also hot glue on any extras that you want.
I think it came out pretty good for my very first craft EVER, if I do say so myself!
And now for the video:
See how simple it is! Now you can make one for every holiday!
Are you going to make one? Post a pic on my Facebook page if you do. Thanks for stopping by.
