Sharing is caring!

Hey y’all we are all sold out of our Valentine’s Day wreath kits featured in this post, but that don’t mean a thing when you can put together all the supplies. You know we love our video tutorials! Today’s creation is a deco mesh Valentine’s Day wreath with a cute sign attached.

We’ve shared a couple of Valentine’s designs recently and each one is unique. Some would think one tutorial would be good enough, but you know better, right? When you see how a few tweaks create an entirely different look it makes watching all of them worthwhile.

Placement, materials, attachments, and bows can take you through so many different variations. Retro, classy, vintage, quirky, so many different possibilities!

How to Make a Deco Mesh Valentine’s Day Wreath

When you’re picking out your ribbons for this deco mesh wreath I don’t want you to overthink it. All I care is that the ribbon matches my sign. That’s it. I don’t care about patterns, materials. So, no matter what theme you plan on creating just keep that in mind.

How to Use a Circle Wreath Frame for an Oval Wreath Design

In this tutorial, we did something a little different. Y’all, if you’ve ever tried to buy an oval frame, they’re super expensive. So no reason to do that when we can make our own like a
normal oval frame starts at around $10. All right?

Press your circle wreath frame down to create an oval shape. Note: Usually the outside ring will break, but the two inner rings will still hold so it won’t matter y’all.

Cute poly burlap deco mesh Valentine's Day wreath with wooden wreath sign.
Yield: 1 wreath

Instructions

How to Prepare Your Wreath Sign

  • Glue (4) 1" mounting squares to the back of the wreath sign.
  • Add a little more glue around the mounting squares to ensure they it'll stick no matter what.
  • Allow to dry, while you start assembling your wreath.

How to Assemble Your Deco Mesh Valentine's Wreath

  • Cut each style of Poly Burlap Deco Mesh into (9) 36" strips
  • Fluff out your wreath frame.
  • Make a ruffle by taking the two ends of a mesh strip and curl them inward a few times and then scrunch them down the middle.
  • Attach the ruffles to the wreath frame as tight as possible, alternating between the two patterns.

How to Secure a Wreath Sign to Your Wreath

At this point, the super glue should be dry on your attachment sign. You can now add pipe cleaners to the back of the sign using the mounting squares. Now you can secure the sign to the wreath using the attached pipe cleaners.
