For eyes

How to make a snowman wreath:

I painted the eyes first so that they could dry.

I drew a carrot out of felt, sewed together and then stuffed. I then set this aside.

I took 2 wreath forms and put the smaller one inside the larger one then zip tied on 4 sides so they were tight.

I cut the mesh into 9 or 10 inch pieces. I did one roll at a time. When done cutting I took one piece and lay flat in front of me. I gathered in the center by walking my finger up from bottom. I used the pipe cleaner to tie and attach to form

I started and went around in a circle on out side first then worked my way in. I attached face and hat with hot glue gun.

I’m sorry but I drew the mouth and cut it out, without using a pattern. You can decorate the hat any way you want and attach with glue.

Tada done!

Thanks,

Peggy Bond!

  1. Hi Peggy
    I really like your snowman wreath, so I bought the material. I had quite a problem with the mesh – I cut the material and followed the rest of your instructions but the material frayed badly. I got frustrated and put the job aside and then I moved and stored some of my goods. I finally found the wreath and tried to watch your video again but it said video one is not available. I wonder if you could send the video to me again and let me know what kind of mesh you used and yours looks fabulous. Thank you for posting the videos and letting people know how to make them. I greatly appreciate any assistance you can give me. Have a wonderful day.

  2. Hi Peggy having trouble with part of your video on the Snow Man Wreath can you send me the instructions, I would really appreciate it I just love it.

    Thank You
    Charlene

  3. Hi Peggy, this is awesome. I was watching part 1 and it ended as you were tying the mesh with a pipe cleaner. The 2nd part begins with you decorating the completed wreath. How did you attach the mesh to the wreath form ? Do you have another video or could you send me the instructions, please? I want to make this for my classroom door.
    Thank you,
    Lynn

  4. Hi Peggy, Ready to make this lovely wreath however part one does not show how to place white “stuff”. Would you please email me? Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful wreath!

  5. Hi Peggy,
    This is the cutest wreath. I bought everything to make it and am ready to start. I watched your video and it ended when you were cutting the mesh into 10″ squares. The 2nd part of your video picked up with you already done with the mesh and working on the hat. I didn’t see how you attached the mesh to the wire and where to begin. Can you please email it to me? I checked youtube and same thing. Thank you. Can’t wait to make this wreath.
    Doreen

  6. Do you skip any rows putting on the mesh? Your first video is missing this info. Your snowman is truly the best. Thanks in advance. I can’t find another way to contact you

  7. Thanks Peggy, I just finished making one for work. I found organza ribbon 6″ wide that were just a dollar so I used that , 3 rolls and it looks great. I just sewed on buttons for the eyes.

  8. On the snowman wreath made by Mrs. Peggy, is there anyway she can estimate how many “bows” for lack of a better word, was put on the outer ring of the form??? I think I’m trying to put too many because I almost finished with the first roll of mesh and had barely gotten finished with the second section. Is there a magical number per section??? Thanks so much for your help.
    Lisa Phillips.

  9. Peggy– I can’t seem to decide on what size hat you used for the snowman. Hobby Lobby has various sizes online as do other sites. Did you use craft foam or felt for the hat. What size did you use. About how many inches in total is the edge of the left side of brim to the edge of the right side of the brim?

  10. Peggy Bond THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful and beautiful showman project. I have been looking for a year now for the supplies and finally have everything I need. I will be making it this year thanks to your kindness in showing us a video. Having a rough time with the shape of the nose and mouth and wish you had a pattern to share as at 80 I don’t think I will ever be a drawer. Guess I will make it work somehow. Do you have any other projects that you are willing to share. As I see that you said that you were giving lessons somewhere.

    I know some people are nasty and hurt your feelings.. . .but I for one appreciate your kindness and talent.

  11. Peggy,
    Thank you so much for taking the time to do the video on the snowman wreath. It was very easy to follow. You made a hero out of me when I delivered one each to my two daughters.
    You made me and my family very happy.
    God bless you and your family!
    Merry Christmas Peggy!
    Carol

  12. Thank you for sharing your snowman with us, I hope I can make mine look like yours!
    It was very helpful to me!!

    Happy Holidays to you and your family!
    Natalie

  13. Thanks for the idea! Four of us made one this weekend. It took about 6 hours. Over two days. Phew! Came out very cute! Made them using 18 and 12 inch frames. Saw your video after I bought supplies. That may be why it took a little longer. Although cutting the mesh and twisting the pipe cleaners took a while as well.

  14. Peggy bond YOU ROCK!!!! I just watched your video on the snowman wreath and can’t wait to make it! Thanks so much for making the video ……..so much easier to see it put together. Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing more projects. The snowman wreath is breathtakingly beautiful!

  15. Hi Peggy this snowman looked so great. So I just finished making one today.
    Thanks for the directions. It worked out so easy.I love it. You did a really great job in
    showing us how easy it is to make.

  16. Hi Peggy. this snowman wreath is adorable!! Is there a possibility to get patterns for your nose and mouth that you made!. Love the way that you made them

  17. Zip ties can also be found at Hobby Lobby in the craft section by the doll houses.
    You now have one stop for everything! I enjoyed your tutorials , thank you for your time doing this for us. I hope to make one real soon.

  18. I made the snowman n turned out wonderful. Question…Did u cut out the mouth with sizzors? It’s real rough. or maybe that doesn’t really matter. I tryed a razor but that did make it a little smoother but dangerous. Any suggestions?

  19. when putting the mesh on the wire do you connect the top 2 wires or one wire, this is so beautiful can’t wait to start mine thanks so much 🙂
    Elizabeth

  20. Is there a trick to painting the eyes? I do not have very steady hands, so the easiest way possible would be greatly appreciated

    1. Hi Mary the cost will vary depending where you are but there arent a lot of materials needed for this project.. apart from the mesh, pipe cleaners and wreath forms 🙂

    2. Mary, I went to Hobby Lobby this evening and purchased 2 wreath forms, 1 piece of orange felt, pipe cleaners, and a foam hat. I purchased 21 inch deco mesh because they didn’t have 10 inch in the Christmas section and Christmas items were 40% off. I spent less than 25.00. I still have to get a few more things but I figured I’d make sure I did the other first, lol.

  21. Hi Peggy, question for you. I finished the outside ring, skipped one, started the second ring. I can see the green wreath form inbetween. Will that fill in as you continue or maybe it needs more mesh? I have 10 pieces each section on the first ring. Thank you

  22. Peggy, I am so excited to get started making this adorable wreath! I loved the videos! I belong to an auxiliary that raises money to send kids that have been burned to a special camp, each campership is $750 and we send 3-4 kids every summer, so I will make them for the auction. Which size wood ovals did you use? There are so many. Thank you sooo much for this adorable project. I have signed up for your newsletter and can’t wait for them to be posted. Maybe there will be more projects to be made for the auction.

  23. I just made this snowman…..got my mesh at Michaels…..35 feet on each roll & I did use all of the rolls. I found HUGE wiggily eyes at Michaels & used them. I found a black felt hat at Target in the $ section. I didn’t use a bow on the hat & it looks fine. I gloed the nose together & then stuffed it. I used 3 round circles cut from heavy card stock for the mouth….to look like coal I have used Aleene’s Super thick Tacky Glue in a jar for many projects & it worked fine for glueing the nose together. After I was done I put some LED (bright white….took the caps off) lights into the back. I really wish I could upload a picture….he looks so cool !.

  24. I love this. I wish I had seen this when I was doing my decor this year. My theme this year happens to be snowmen and snowflakes, but I will keep this for next year.

  25. Thank you so much for the wonderful wreath idea. I had a couple of friends over last night and we had a blast making this adorable snow man. I wish I could post a picture of ours.. Thank you again ❤?

      1. I found some at Walmart in the Christmas isle. 36 ft decorative fabric comes in 2 roll packs. I’m just starting on the wreath so I’ll have to see if this works the same.

  26. Hi Peggy,

    The wreath is so cute and is just what I’m looking for! Have you ever thought about selling them? I am very interested and would love to buy one!! If not I will just have to get the supplies and watch your videos 🙂

    Happy Holidays !

  27. I started making this but not sure on how many you tie per section? Do you fill it tight from one point to the other then go to the next section etc. If so I think the 3 rolls won’t be enough? Or do I put a few in each section then skip down two rows?! Also do I tie pipe cleaner around the two wire rings in rows or just very top (single) rows. Hope I’ve explained it, sorry a little confused. Love this!!!

  28. Your wreath is beautiful. I truly appreciate you doing the tutorial. I will be making this in the future. Please don’t get discourage, I would love you to share other great ideas. Thank you again.

  29. Well done. This is awesome..working on it now. Can’t wait until it is finished. Your instructions are easy to follow. Thanks so much!!

  30. I just made this wreath for my 88 year old Mother who lives in an assisted living facility. It turned out really good and Mom and her friends love Mr Snowman. Thanks

  31. I cant find the deco mesh 10 inch any where here. There is a ton of tulle but no 10 inch deco. I have seen the 21 inch kind but ive seen people say it freys. Can u use tull in place of the mesh or no. Any other ideas? Thanls for the pattern its the cuttest thing ever

    1. I used the 21 “. I found a video on YouTube showing you how to use it. Basically you cut your 10” piece then fold the cut ends in so they meet. Then fold the entire piece in half, then at the half way mark again…is where you scrunch the piece together and attach you pipe cleaner. Hope this makes sense. 🙂 (look on youtube for inscructions)

  32. Will it stop fraying? I had to get 21 inch roll and 18″ & 12″ rings. Figured he would just be bigger. Now scared that I wasted money and about to waste this time doing it wrong. ?

      1. When I watched your instruction video it ended just as you started to decorate the snowman’s hat, where can I view the whole video?

    1. I could only find the 12 inch ring, I then purchased “stem wire ” to make a X in the middle of the wire wreath. I used the stem wire to attach my pieces too. 🙂

    2. Better to fold the 21″, cutting it will give you another raw edge and will continue to fray. Found that out the hard way. If you check Trendy Tree website, they show you how to use the 21″ to make a ruffle wreath.

  33. Anyone know if her Deco mesh had a sparkle to it. It seemed to shine. I like that look and most of the deco mesh I’ve seen is flat white. Thanks

  34. I cannot find the deco mesh in 10″ size…only 20″ and then I end up having to cut it and it frays really bad, making a big mess. Any suggestions as to where to find the 10″ rolls? I”ve checked at Hobby Lobby, Michael’s and JoAnnes…no luck. Thank you. Love the snowman!

        1. I couldn’t find 10″ deco mesh, but I was able to find 12″ iridescent white decomesh at Michaels. I am currently making the wreath right now (taking a break right now…lol) and the 12″ seems to be working pretty well. I just cant get it to stop fraying as I bunch it up.

  35. I love the Snowman wreath! Thank you for sharing and the tutorial. I have no issues with it. Have purchased all of my supplies except the 10″ deco mesh. I can’t find it anywhere. Had my husband go 20 miles out of the way to a 2nd Hobby Lobby where they said they would hold 3 of the 10″ rolls. When he got there they were the 21″ rolls and they told him to have me cut them in half. I told him no, they would fray. Can’t find them online either. Suggestions?? Thanks!

  36. I love the wreath, I have to make 2 for my daughters, started one just having trouble with making the nose and doing the eyes, any chance of posting a way of getting the pattern for the eyes and nose to look like yours? Thanks!

  37. Hi Peggy,
    Could you please get in touch with me? I really want to chat with you about your amazing wreath. I have left you my e-mail address above. Thx so much. Joanne Martin.

  38. Thank you so much. I’m all about doing crafty presents this year and this is so darn cute. Thank you for sharing. Have a wonderful holiday!!

  39. Such a cute idea, you know you have, but I JUST CANT FIND THE 8 INCH WIRE FRAME, MINE IS COMING OUT REALLY NICE AND I WRAPPED THE PIPECLEANER LEGS AROUND THE WIRE LIKE COILED MONKEY TAILS, AND ITS NICE AND SMOOTH…BUT THE MIDDLE OF THE WREATH IS EMPTY, because I can’t find the 8 inch frame

    1. i used pipe cleaners and made a cross (more like a target) in the middle of the frame. make sure it’s tight. then used more pipe cleaners along the sections of the cross to attach the mesh to

    2. A suggestion for the center- I had used a cookie cooling rack in my center (2/$! Dollar Tree) I used pipe cleaners to attach it. It worked out great. Saw the idea on another tutorial where someone made a snowman

    1. Wrapping from the outside in gives you better indication of exactly how much fill you have to do in the center of the wreath. I bulked up the outside and next row in, as Peggy illustrated, and by the time I got to the middle, I only had to add 4-5 pieces.

  40. Thank you very much for taking the time to share the awesome videos and instructions regarding how you made your snowman wreath, Peggy. I greatly appreciate the selfless giving of your time & energy in order to share your design with others. It is adorable & I am excited to get started on making one! Thank you for inspiring me. Blessings, Dee

  41. Thank you so much!! The video helped a ton! Going to get my supplies today and getting started! My house is Snowman themed! He is gonna make a great addition, I may even make him a girl?

  42. Thanks so much for sharing this!!! I am not crafty at all, but have followed your instructions and am well on my way to finishing. Can’t wait to make a few for family and friends!!!!

      1. How do you keep the mesh from fraying apart? Do you recommend spraying adhesive on it before adding the eyes etc? As I’m putting mine together I find a need to keep trimming the treads that are “unweaving”. Thanks!

      1. Grill designs, I can’t find the 8 inch frame at any craft store or nursery, do you know where else I could look? Maybe online?

        1. I’ve read that you can use foam tubing from home improvement stores in place of wreath forms, and that it’s puch cheaper. Just duct tape the ends together. Or you could use a pool noodle and cut it to size.

  43. Thank you for the great video. The only question I have is about how long is your nose template? I don’t sew, but did you make two pieces of your template and sew them together or did you make one and sew that? Do you have approximate dimensions for the template? Thank you so much. I just don’t want a nose that is too short.

    Thanks,
    Lisa

  44. Thank you for sharing your creative snowman wreath idea and taking the time to re-create the video … I thought you explained it well and can’t wait to purchase the supplies and get started making one for myself – Happy Holidays and, again, thank you for sharing!

  45. Beautiful job. Thank you for sharing. As a SS it is hard to take classes when our funds are limited. Too bad others don’t appreciate your thoughtfulness in sharing your talents. .

    The video is AWESOME! I am a visual person and the video sure helped. I will be making this with my grandchildren.. I hope I will be able to find more of your ideas and projects.. Do you have a website?.

  46. Love this Snowman Wreath. Thanks for the instructions. One question…do you finish the back of the wreath at all or are all the pipe cleaners left exposed?
    Thanks

  47. Thsnks so much for posting! I am NOT handy but definately have to try this…he is so cute. I am in the Midwest and cannot get the white deco mesh. It is white metallic…I think that should b ok…next…can only get the deco meshin 5.5 , all u DIY ‘s. ..should I cut it still in the 9 ,10 inches? Thanks for your input in advance!!!

      1. I LOVE your wreath and your instructions are wonderful!!! Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us – I greatly appreciate it and can’t wait to make one!!! (When my family sees it – there may be more than one made!!!) Merry Christmas!!!

  48. I’m having trouble finding 10′ mesh. I can find 21″ easily. Is it possible to use the 21′ and cut it in half lengthwise and get the same effect.

      1. Thank you Peggy for responding to my first email about cutting the mesh in half. Luckily I found the 10in at another hobby lobby. I am not crafty at all but have gotten most of him done. I’m now trying to do his face. I like several others would like more detail on your patter for nose and mouth. Thank you so much. I have really enjoyed working on this

  49. Thank you so much for your step by step video. It was very informative, I am a show me person so that helps me a lot. Hope to make these for my family. I know they will love them.

    1. I got it at a Hobby Lobby where they have different hats not in the Xmas stuff. Where are you getting the 10in white deco mesh….I have been every where in S. California and can not get it.

      1. Pam Dotson, I found mine in the floral section at hobby lobby, they have all colors there including the white I bought has irredescent running through it, and I just started working on it and it’s beautiful, they also have a gingerbread color I think I’m going to make a gingerbread wreath next,, got the wreath wire there too

      2. Pam hope you found the deco mesh where I told you….I found it in their floral section, not by the fabric…but when I bought the wire frames I bout what I thought was the 8 and 12 but it was 12 and 16, so now I’m having trouble finding the 8 inch ? But it is very pretty so far…

  50. I just love this wreath!! You did a great job making the video..you explained it step by step very clearly!! The question I have is have you ever added lights, the type that are very small.

  51. I would like to thank you for taking the time to show us in your tutorial video you’ve made, also for your hubby (I’m assuming) that recorded it. You did a great job explaining everything, if only some people would watch and listen to what you say in the video they wouldn’t be so quick to jump at you or ask stupid questions that you’ve clearly explained already. Just because you didn’t say “attach the nose….” in a specific way alone, you did state that you hot glued the FACE on and I would imagine that includes the nose, after all it is a part of the FACE. SMH, some people…..anyway, I love this snowman and plan to make a few of them (one for myself of course). Would love to see some of your other projects that you make, your very talented. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!

    1. Thank you so much. I am so much a visual learner and your videos helped me very much. I am excited to attempt this. Thank you again.

  52. I love your snowman! Thank you sooo much for sharing your diy project with wonderful directions! I will be making one for myself asap!

  53. Could you tell me what size hat? and how many & what length pipe cleaners. Thank you so much I will definitely be making one of these for myself. You did a great job.

  54. Love the snowman but your part 1 video cut off before you made the bow for the hat. Do you have a video on how to make the bow? Don’t know what type of ribbon or how much ribbon to use and I don’t know how to make a bow like yours. I figured out the strip part along the rim of the hat. Thanks

  55. This is the cutest wreath and I am so glad you made the video to show us what to do. I think I might try to make a full size snowman! Wish me luck 🙂

  56. Gorgeous! Do you make these and sell? Price not a problem. Have arthritis in hands and can’t make one. Thank you for your time and have a Happy Holidays. It can even wait until after the holidays because I am sure that you are busy.

  57. I do trust all of the ideas you have introduced for your post. They’re really convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for beginners. May you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.|

  58. I love love love this and have been scrambling around to find the 10″ deco mesh in white with no success. I bought 21 in thinking I could cut it in half but I see that it frays easily. I am still going to make it using the 21 in and see how it comes out. Thank you for the tutorial though. It was very helpful! Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!

    1. Did you use the 21″ Deco mesh. I could not find the 10″ either so bought the 21″ but now I am wondering if it going to be worth all the work to cut the 21″ or should I order the 10″ online and return the 21″ because of the fraying. Just curious? Thanks.

  59. Peggy, Thank you so much for Sharing this despite the nasty people!! I am so sorry for the ignorant slobs that were so harsh because they video cut off. I laughed that if they couldn’t figure it out they should be doing DIY. I’m going to attempt this and hang it in my classroom then take it home to enjoy over Christmas break. Happy Thanksgiving Peggy and a very Blessed Christmas to you and your family from someone who appreciates you in Colorado.

  60. TIP – if you lay all 3 rolls of mesh down together on a cutting mat, you can use a rotary cutter to cut all 3 layers at once. Saves a ton of time and also helps you make straight & exact cuts.

  61. I can’t wait to make him this weekend….Glad I got to see the whole video….didn’t want to make any mistakes….Thank you Peggy….

  62. I too LOVE snowmen! I normally don’t particular care for wreaths made with the mesh, but I SO LOVE YOUR SNOWMAN! And was so excited you did a video tutorial as I didn’t understand the scrunching of the mesh between the fingers, I do now. Amazing, I can’t wait to make my very own.

  63. I know you said to start on the outer part of the wreath form and then come 2 down. Whar number of the wreath form is after the second down from the outer? Thank you and what an awesome job you have done.

  64. Loved the wreath and great video. Very easy to understand. Thank you so much. Will make great old fashioned Christmas gifts.

  65. Thank you so much for making the video I think you did a fabulous job on the video!! I can’t wait to make it you are so talented!! 🙂

  66. Thank you for sharing this wreath with us and for taking the time to do the videos. I do need clarification about one thing, not because you didn’t say, but because I want to be sure I understood correctly.
    After completing the first, outer row of deco mesh, you said to go 2 rings for the next row of mesh. Are we to skip 2 rings and begin next row of mesh on 3rd ring? or skip 1 row and begin new row of mesh on 2nd ring from previous row?
    Thank you again.

  67. I thousands of course’s with tool in them. The easiest way to cut tooL cut yourself a piece of cardboard. Then wrap it many many times with the tool cut off each side and they’re all done it all done. do it again wrap it cut off each side and you’ve got more tool all done that way you don’t have to guesstimate waste your time or anything. It’s so much easier this way just keep rappin cutting and wrapping and cutting and they’ll be all done in a minute or two.

  68. I love the snowman. I collect them and I plan to have mine made by the time the collection comes out in January. You have inspired me. My imagination is dreaming up lots of variations for more holidays. I see a witch in my future. THANK YOU for sharing.

  69. As soon as you said that your Mom is a snowman finatic, I literally said, “Yup! Me too!” Thank you so much for sharing this idea and walking us through the proccess. This look super simple ♡

  70. Love this this snowman wreath I am going to try to make him! We don’t have a hobby store though just hope I can find a hat, what does everyone think of a girly type hat?

  71. This is the cutest thing ever! I’m hoping from your instructions, video, and your follow up answers I can replicate your work. Thanks so much for sharing! Hobby lobby, here I come.

  72. How do you place the mesh on the metal of the wreath. Form wise. I’d hate to mess up. Your video just went to the twisting of the pipe cleaners

  73. Thanks for your video. I have everything except the hat. Going to start cutting now! I love the snowman, he’s going to match my snowman dishes. Thanks again!

  74. I LOVE THIS WREATH IT IS AWESOME. PARDON THE CAPS MY KEYBOARD IS STUCK!!!. DO YOU HAVE A VIDEO OF THE COMPLETE PROCESS PLEASE. I AM HOUSEBOUND AND CANNOT TAKE ADDITIONAL CLASSES AND WOULD LOVE TO KNOW HOW TO FINISH THE WREATH,

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS

  75. I’ve scrolled through most of the comments and I’m not seeing anything ride unless it’s already been deleted. As I watched the video it was also cut off at the pipe cleaner point. These women also said please and thank you as well as complimenting the wreath. It’s adorable. But they were only asking for to see the continuation of it. It’s too cute, we all love it, some of us aren’t crafty enough to know how to finish it ourselves.

    1. The video explains everything. If people would actually listen while they watched they would know what to do. Also people may have said please and thank you but it is still rude too point out things that “might” not have been in the video. Which by the way she didn’t have to do. She could have charged to send instructions. People need to use their brains and figure out somethings on their own. By you posting this comment shows that you belong in the rude category “i scrolled through and haven’t seen anything rude” who are you to judge what people might get offended by? Your post should be deleted. Thank you Peggy for posting the making of this beautiful wreath and i will be making one with my mother as a project to do together!

  76. The video cut off before it showed how to put them mesh on the wire. It went off as she gathered her first piece of mesh and twisted the pipe cleaner. How do i get the rest of the video or instructions on how to do it…

  77. Thank you for sharing! The snowman is super cute and I have lots of leftover white mesh from my sisters wedding – I kept wondering what I could do with it and waalaa I see your post!! Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

  78. Love this snowman. Thank you so much. And people should read and watch video before asking so many questions. I will be following you for more great ideas. Happy thanksgiving

    1. Nancy, were you able to see how it was all put together? I think people have questions because the video quit and did not show all of the steps. Does anyone know if there is a complete video?

  79. The video cut off for me right after you gathered the first square and put the pipe cleaner on it.
    now what do you do? Love the wreath

  80. Love your snowman. I’m going to make this little guy and was watching the video and it cut off when you started explaining how to do the ruffle and attach it to the ring. Is there anyway possible you can post a continuation of how to make this sweet thing. Thank you for doing the video and sharing your secrets with us. You’re very talented. Val

  81. Peggy what a cute idea. We would like to make it with out kiddos. Can you just explain how you attached the nose? Thank you for posting and please don’t worry about rude comments . We appreciate the ideas ?

    1. Hi Lisa,

    1. Hi Rhonda,

      I’m not sure if you were able to download the second half of the video, if not the written directions states that she just used a hot glue gun to attach the face and hat, this includes the nose. Hope you enjoy making your snowman. 🙂

  82. It would seem that when someone takes their time to try and explain something of this nature, that people would realize that the person is doing so out of the goodness of their heart… complaining or pointing out short comings are rude…. perhaps some of you could take the time to put some thought into the project and answer your own questions….. after all, someone else figured it out , I bet you can too!! Otherwise if your comments cannot be supportive of the author’s efforts, it would be best to keep your complaints and begging to yourselves! Thanks you Peggy for this beautiful idea and I appreciate your doing so…

    1. Is there a specific site you ordered all your supplies for this particular wreath? I would LOVE to make this, but was hoping you got all your supplies at one store/site. Thank you in advance, Anita

    2. Peggy Bond….your snowman wreath is really cute and I’d love to be able to see the directions but the video stops shortly after 2 minutes. Do you have another link for FULL instructions?
      Thanks for your time!

  83. Peggy, your snowman wreath and instructions are perfect. Thanks so much for sharing, and I hope you will continue to share with us!

        1. Here is another question for you Peggy, sorry, but I have looked at every craft store hobby lobby, Michaels, nurserys, and the smallest they have is 12 inch, no one has the 8 inch and not even a tag on the shelf for it like it doesn’t exist….!!! Your hobby lobby has 8 inch wire circles? Is that inside circle measurement or outer ring measurement? I bought the smallest one they had was 12 and then the next one up was 16, and now the middle I’m afraid is going to be empty and I’ll need more mesh won’t I …? HELP, I CANT FIND THE SMALLER 8INCH WIRE RING, I bought those and zip tied them together and there’s a large hole in the middle…

      1. Peggy, don’t let people get you down!!!!! They just have no life!!! Thank you soooooo much for posting this cute project! My friend and I are going to do it together!!!!

  84. Just love the mid wreath. I know that the deco messy can make a small wreath form into a giant wreath. You just never say what two sizes of the wire wreath you used. Otherwise, very clear.

    Thank you, Melanie

  85. When attaching the mesh to the wire rings, which rings did you attach the mesh to? I would not think you would attach it to every single ring.

  86. would I be right to say deco mesh is placed widthwise in front of you, gathered from bottom to top at center point then pipecleaner is wrapped around this gathered point, twisted at back to secure then pipecleaner is pushed into wreath? or is it wrapped around form wreath? anyhow I’m planning on trying it, thank you 🙂

    1. Helen, I twisted a pipecleaner around each 10 inch square mesh, and then I coiled each little pipe cleaner leg around the ring, like a little monkey tail would be coiled around a tree branch, and it left the back looking really neat and smooth, no poking wires hanging out….I hope that explains it easier…

      1. Thanks for the extra information! I am excited to make this wreath for this holiday season, and also wondered how to attach it. Super cute wreath! would love to subscribe to a YouTube channel with more tutorials! Thank you! Greatly appreciated!!!

    1. I guess you don’t know how to read then, because it clearly states that you use the pipe cleaners that are used to gather the mesh, to also attach it to the wire wreath. She also states that she starts from the outside and works her way in…and in case you missed it like others have, she attached the hat and face with HOT GLUE!!!! I really don’t understand the hostility towards this woman who has taken time out of her life to post a great craft project, and all people seem to do is complain and act rude. Maybe next time try asking the question politely and oh I don’t know maybe thank her for even posting this. Could be why she didn’t respond to your question.

      1. Nicely put Rosemarie!!! It’s a DIY CRAFT idea NOT a cure for world peace. (By peoples comments that’s obvious) Good Heavens!!!! Its attitudes like that, that are creating the upheaval in our world.
