After Hubby informed me that he didn't like my moss wreath, I decided to make one that he would definitely love. He loves anything orange and purple, and with football season in full swing, it was time for a Tiger-themed door decoration. I've seen them with footballs and little helmets in them too, but I didn't want to take it that far.
Here's the new wreath!!
And here's how to put together your own.
Wire wreath form (mine is 15")
Decor Mesh, medium width
wired ribbon (I changed ribbon after taking my materials picture)
Start by cutting 2" to 3" long pieces of your floral ribbon. You'll need lots of these, maybe 30-40. Wire cutters make this easy, but you can use an old pair of scissors too.
Scrunch up the very end of your mesh. Poke a piece of wire through a few layers, and twist the wire to the back of the wreath form.
Every few inches, bunch up the mesh width-wise and thread a piece of wire through it, attaching it to the wreath.
Once you've gone all the way around your wreath....start over! Wrap it over and over, bunching, and filling in blank spots with more mesh. I went around my wreath a total of 3 times to get the fullness I wanted.
For the purple accents, just pinch the centers of pieces of ribbon, or make tiny bows like in THIS tutorial. Attach them to the wreath using the floral wire, spacing them as you wish.
And DONE!!! A fun and festive wreath for football, or any season. Just change up the colors for your favorite team, or your current holiday.
Hubby likes this one.....YES!
Try it with burlap and mesh too!!
