What do I need to make a mesh wreath?
Believe it or not, you don’t need a whole lot of supplies to make a mesh wreath. I picked all of my supplies up at Dollar Tree, so this wreath costed me right around $10 to make – not bad!
You’ll need a wire wreath form, some mesh, ribbon, tulle and pipe cleaners. Of course, you will need a scissors to sut everything with, and a glue gun if you choose to add scarecrows like I did. That’s it!
What to use to hang a wreath on the door?
I use an over the door wreath hanger, which I purchased at Dollar Tree as well You can also pick one up from Walmart or your local craft store. Other options include suction cup wreath hangers, and magnetic wreath hangers for metal doors.
Where should a wreath be placed on a door?
Wreaths should be placed in the center of the door at eye level. If you’re using an over the door wreath hanger, it should be just right!
You’re going to need the following supplies to make your own mesh wreath. I purchased all of my supplies at Dollar Tree, but they’re pretty much sold out of anything relating to fall now. I think all of the crafters like me must have filled their carts! Luckily, these items can be purchased at Amazon too.

Mesh wreath diy tutorial
I’ve provided some step by step photos below, so that you can envision how to make this wreath. However, if photos don’t quite do it for you, I highly recommend watching a few different ribbon mesh wreath diy YouTube videos. It’s how I learned!
Before you start, note that you will need a total of 30 bunches of ribbon/mesh/tulle. You will have roughly enough for 5 bunches on each of the 6 sections in the wreath form. You will make 6 bunches with 4 pieces, then the remaining 24 pieces with 3 bunches. If you are able to do more than 6 punches with 4 pieces, thatâ€™s fine!
- 14” metal wreath form
- 2 packages of decorative mesh (brown, orange and yellow patterned)
- 1 package of ribbon tulle (gold with leaves)
- 1 roll chevron ribbon (white with orange, green and red chevron stripes)
- 1 roll orange burlap ribbon
- 15 fuzzy sticks/chenille stems
- 2 pack of scarecrow picks
- Hot glue gun loaded with glue
- Cut all of your ribbon and mesh into 6 inch lengths.
- Cut each fuzzy stick/chenille stem in half.
- Roll each piece of mesh into a tighter tube.Roll each piece of the ribbon tulle diagonally.
- Gather 3-4 pieces of mush, ribbon, and/or tulle; laying each piece on top of the other, in a snowflake like pattern. Alternate between them all, to achieve them whimsical look of this wreath.
- Wrap a chenille stem around the bunch and twist 3 times.Repeat steps 5-6 until you have 30 bunches.
- Now it’s time to start attaching the bunches to the wreath. Lay the chenille stem over the inner two wires on the wreath and twist the stems together three times to secure.Repeat this step over the entire wreath, attaching 5 bunches to each of the 6 sections. You will want to pace them so that the different ribbons are somewhat evenly scattered throughout the wreath.
- Once all of the bunches are attached, you will fluff them out with your hands, until you get the look you desire.Break the sticks off of each scarecrow.
- Attach the 2 scarecrows to the wreath using hot glue, and stick them to some of the ribbon to hold them in place.
