How to to make a deco mesh flower wreath:
STEP 1: Paint your foam center using your desired color. Attach the glass gems with hot glue.
STEP 2: If you are using 21″ mesh, cut every 10″ and then cut in half at 10.5″. If you are using 10″ mesh, just cut every 10″. You will need 12 10″ Green/gold, 6 10″ Brown, 18 10″ Burgundy, 18 10″ Orange/Gold, & 36 10″ Ombre cuts for a total of 90 pieces of mesh.
STEP 3: Fold mesh from corner to corner, pinch together in the middle and fold up, so they have a petal look to them. Then take second piece of mesh, fold corner to corner, pinch at middle, twist and fold over itself. Insert first fold into second fold and attach with a pipe cleaner.
Then attach the green/gold to the outer ring of each of the six sections on the wreath frame.
STEP 4: On each of the six sections, second rung in, attach the burgundy and ombre petals together and attach to frame.
STEP 5: On each of the 6 sections, third rung in, attach the orange/gold and burgundy petals together and attach to frame.
STEP 6: Attach the orange/gold and brown petals together and attach in between each section on the second ring from the outside.
Then attach the burgundy and orange/gold petals in between each section on the last ring to the inside of the frame.
STEP 7: Now that all the outer petals are in place, attach your center to the grid, using hot glue. Then turn over and cut some of the florist wire into about 1 1/2″ lengths and then fold and attach to the back of the grid into the back of your foam center to better secure it into place.
Step 8: Using your ombre mesh, do a single twist fold and attach closely to the center of your flower all around it. This usually takes 30 individual petals.
Trim your mesh that might be frayed and you can spray with an adhesive to help it from shedding.
And thats the completed deco mesh flower wreath. I’ve also got a video tutorial for a similar wreath that you can watch below from my youtube channel
