Hey everyone, I’m Simply Shalese, here to make something awesome with you guys! Today we will be making a cute and simple St. Patrick’s Day deco mesh wreath. Let’s get started!

Material

Bowdabra Bow Maker

14 inch wreath ring

Decorative sign for the center

6 inch wide white deco mesh

Chenille stems

2 inch green and burlap ribbon – 8 inch long pieces

7/8 inch burlap ribbon – 8 inch long pieces

White glitter ribbon – 5/8″ wide, 8 inch long pieces

Green glitter ribbon – 5/8″ wide,  8 inch long pieces

5/8 inch silver ribbon – 8 inch long pieces

Hot Glue Gun

Scissors

Attaching the Sign

I usually save this step for last but I’m going to start off placing the sign to the wreath. Cut the hanger off the top of the sign. Take two chenille steps and twist them together to form one long chenille stem. Do this for the top and bottom of your sign. Use your hot glue gun to glue the steps to the back of the sign. Be sure to leave some of the stem hanging past the sign so that you can easily attach it to the ring. Next, twist each chenille step around the ring and tuck away or cut the excess stem. I used the second from the inner ring.

Preparing the Ribbon and Deco Mesh

Cut your deco mesh into 8 inch long pieces. Also cut the ribbon of your choice into 8 inch long pieces. The exact amount depends on the size of your wreath ring, sign and bundles.

Making the Bundles

Take a chenille stem and place it down in the center of the Bowdabra. Take a piece of deco mesh and roll it at a diagonal. Next, scrunch it in the center and place it own on your Bowdabra. I chose to use two pieces of deco mesh but you can go with whatever amount you chose.

With the ribbon, fold it in half to find the center. Then fold it in half, bring the front and the back up and scrunch it down. Repeat this step with as many pieces of ribbon as you chose. I went with one piece of each of my different styles of ribbon. I’m going to alternate which pieces I place on top just to given the wreath a little more variety. Repeat this step for each bundle. The number of bundles you use is completely up to you.

Don’t forget to use your wand to help scrunch everything together.

Once you have completed your bundle, take your chenille stem and twist it across and pull. Then cross it one more time. This will be more difficult than using bow wire so just be prepared. Once you have ti secured, remove it from the Bowdabra. Bring the ends of the stem to the back and twist it together. There are multiple ways to complete this step so go with whichever way works best for you. Repeat this step for all pieces.

Placing the Bundles on the Wreath Ring

Starting at the bottom, use the outer two rings to attach your first bundle. I went with the outer two rings because the sign I’m using is slightly larger than usual. Take your bundle and twist it to the stem. You will have excess stem once you’re done but you can just tuck it away or cut it if you’d like.

I decided the best method for this specific wreath would be to place the sign first and work the ribbon and mesh bundles around the sign. You can make your bundles smaller or larger.  I like changing up the bundles because it looks so cute and adorable. Just have fun with it and make it your own!
