  • 1 Attach mesh

    Gather the end of the mesh ribbon and attach to the bottom of the wire form using a chenille stem.

  • 2 Continue attaching mesh

    From there, measure out approximately 13'' of the mesh, gather it together and attach to the bottom part of the wire form. Referring to the photo, continue a zig zag pattern covering the bottom portion of the wire form.

  • 3 Cut & attach ribbon

    Cut pieces of ribbon 12'' long and fill in the mesh-covered area with loops and tails using the chenille stems to attach in place.

  • 4 Attach & tie ribbon

    Attach ribbon strips to the top of the wire form with chenille stems so they hang down past the mesh. Continue until the area is filled in with ribbon. Tie the ends to the bottom of the wire form behind the mesh.

  • 5 Attach legs

    Attach the legs to the back using chenille stems.
