Deco Mesh and Burlap Wreath

burlap flowers, decorative burlap ribbon, ribbon, hot glue, wire


This is one of my favorite projects I have made EVER.  Maybe it is because I used deco mesh for the first time and I love trying new things.  Maybe it is because I used burlap and I LOVE burlap.  It could be both of those, but my favorite part is the finished product.  I love the way it looks and I love the colors.  I am very happy with this wreath.  

I made this wreath for my future sister-in-law.  She had a bridal shower and the theme of the shower was around the house.  I was assigned the front door and I knew I had to do a wreath that she had been eyeing at Quilted Bear (local store).  I love everything about wreaths (I know I talk about it often) and so I was up for the challenge.  The only thing that made me a little nervous is that I had never used deco mesh before and I wanted the finished product to be fabulous.  

Come to find out deco mesh is so fun.  There are so many colors, but I stuck with the natural burlap color since I was using natural burlap for the flowers.  The colors work perfectly together and I am more than pleased with the outcome.

Supplies you will need for this project: 

ribbon, fabric, hot glue, wire, wire cutters
  • 12 inch wire wreath form (I got mine from Joann)
  • 12-inch Deco Mesh (I got mine from Michaels
  • 26 gauge wire
  • Wire cutters (I just used pliers)
  • Burlap (I had the plain burlap already.  I am not sure where I originally got it.  However, the black polka dot burlap I got from Hobby Lobby). 
  • Hot glue gun 
  • Black material (I got mine from Walmart.  They have a bunch of fabric quarters already to go by their fabric that you can buy by the yard.  It was only $1 and I didn't use it all!)

  • Coordinating ribbon (I got mine from Joann.  Mine is 1.5 inches)
