Poly deco mesh garland is a decorative mesh-like ribbon that is used to make wreaths. The wreaths are made by tying the mesh in loops onto the circumference of a wreath form. Wreath forms consist of rings made of wire or interwoven dried grape vines. The poly deco mesh makes lovely colourful and fluffy loops around the wreath form. Once you have tied the mesh to the wreath, you can decorate it with festive painted wooden cutouts.
Things you need
Grape vine or wire work wreath form, 24-inch
1 roll poly deco mesh ribbon garland, 18-inch
1 roll matching satin ribbon, 2-inch
Cut eight 10-inch pieces of the 2-inch satin ribbon with scissors.
Place the free end of the poly deco mesh ribbon garland at the centre of the bottom of the wreath. Wrap one 10-inch piece of satin ribbon around both the wreath and mesh ribbon and tie it in a double knot to secure it.
Turn the wreath counterclockwise 2 inches from the starting position, drawing out more mesh garland from the roll as you turn the wreath. Tie the garland to the wreath with another piece of 2-inch ribbon. Pull the garland up between the two tie points to make it fluffy.
Continue turning the wreath and tying the mesh garland to it with the ribbon at 2-inch intervals. When you reach the starting point, use the last satin ribbon piece to tie the mesh garland to the wreath form. Cut the mesh garland off of the roll and trim the end as necessary. Pull up the mesh garland to make it even and fluffy all the way around the wreath.
