How to Make a Pumpkin Deco Mesh Wreath
You don't have to go all the way to the pumpkin patch to bring home this fall decoration! Make your own pumpkin that you can display from Harvest time through Halloween using deco mesh ribbon. You can customize your final wreath with your favorite fall flowers or ribbon.
Wrap wreath with ribbon
Wrap the wreath form with orange ribbon, securing with chenille stems.
Attach 5 chenille stems
Attach 5 chenille stems to the top of the wreath form, spacing approximately 2" apart.
Repeat on bottom
Repeat on the bottom of the wreath form, directly opposite to the chenille stems on top.
Attach 21" mesh
Gather the 21" mesh and tie it to the first chenille stem on top.
Puff mesh down & tie
Bring the mesh down, puffing it out, and tie it to the first chenille stem on the bottom.
Repeat & trim excess
Repeat the process back and forth until all of the chenille stems are full. Trim any excess mesh.
Roll the brown mesh into a tube. Trim the tube to 11" and tie it to the wreath form as a stem.
Curl & tie ribbon into bow
Curl flat ribbon around a broom handle to create a tendril. Tie the 6" curled ribbon into a bow.
Attach bow & flower pick
Attach the bow to the wreath. Add the flower pick.
Add a hanging loop
Attach a chenille loop for hanging.
