Supplies used to make a Christmas tree wreath
- UITC Triangle board
- (66) 18 lb zip ties 6-8 inch in length
- 1.5 rolls of 10”x 10 yard Decomesh (I am using a foiled red and green stripe)
- Wire cutter and/or zip tie gun
- Embellishments to decorate tree (optional)
Embellishments for your Christmas tree wreath
Whatever you like. I will be using a light up sign and a tree bow. You can decorate with ornaments, ribbons, greenery picks…whatever you want Incorporate a fun bow for the top of your tree; however, you can use a star, angel, ornament… whatever suits your needs.
Christmas tree wreath Instruction
- Pre-load all sets of holes closed on the board. There is 65 sets of holes.
- After your board is pre-loaded, you will need to cut deco mesh, poly jute, poly burlap or whatever you like. Cut 9×10”. Cut 65 pieces which is about 1.5 10 yard rolls.
- Once completed, you will take your mesh, place it in front of you, turn it into a diamond shape with the curl side up. Take the corner and roll from corner to opposite corner. When you’re rolling you don’t need to roll them to too tight…but try for same thickness throughout.
- After your piece of mesh is rolled, you’re going to fold that piece of mesh in half with both ends pointing the same direction. Make sure each side of the folded pieces are the same length.
- Take that folded end of the mesh and place it into the zip tie on the bottom row. It doesn’t matter if you start on the right or left side of the board. Just put that folded end into the zip tie about a half an inch in and zip it up nice and tight. Do this for the whole row.
- Once you have all your pieces placed and secured in that row, cut off all the zip tie tails off. For the edge/side pieces you want to make sure your Deco mesh is slightly turned, laying along the contour of the side of the board.
- Continue on each row doing the exact same instructions as above. Keep doing this all the way to row number 1. You don’t have to use all the same mesh you can intermingle different meshes and/or different colors. A really nice example of this, is a lighter green and darker green and doing every other one alternating greens.
- When you’ve completed adding the decomesh, all there is left to put is the hanger. Your hanging holes are the chamfeured or beveled holes in row one. Place a zip tie, a piece of twine, or ribbon… or whatever you want to use as a hanger.
Now the fun part begins with decorating your Christmas tree. I kept this one very simple by just adding a light up sign that I had in stock as well as a fun ribbon bow tree topper I made, and I called it done!
