Hey, y’all! When it’s warm outside, I’m in a red, white, and blue mood more often than not. With the weather warming up, it’s time to get your patriotic wreath inventory prepped and ready to go.

The supplies for this patriotic deco mesh wreath came from a previous kit we mailed out. If you didn’t grab the kit, you can still create this look. The only difference is that you’ll need to order supplies individually.

Step 1

Take grapevine base and tie 4 pipe cleaners to the grapevine base all on one side.

Step 2

Add one zip tie to the grapevine base in between the top two pipe cleaners and add another between the bottom two pipe cleaners.

Step 3

Cut (8) 24″ strips of deco mesh. Use the curl and ruffle method then add 2 strips of deco mesh to each wreath tie. Start at the top and work your way down to the bottom.

Step 4

Grab your EZ Bow Maker and ribbons.

Step 5

Take the 4″ ribbon and measure a 16″ tail with a 6.5″ loop on each side. Cut the second tail.

Step 6

Next, take your 2.5″ ribbon and measure a 16″ tail with (2) 6″ loops on each side. Cut the tail.

Step 7

Take the 1.5″ ribbon and measure a 16″ tail with a 5.5″ loop on each side. Cut tail.

Step 8

Take the second 1.5″ ribbon and measure a 16″ tail with a center loop.

Step 9

Take a pipe cleaner and wrap it around the center of the ribbon. Give it a good twist to secure it nice and tight.

Step 10

Attach the bow to the bottom of the wreath on top of the deco mesh. Fluff out the bow and dovetail the tails.

Step 11

With the ribbon tailboard, measure 3 ribbon tails with each of the 1.5″ ribbons as well as the 2.5″ ribbon. Dovetail the ends.

Step 12

Layer each of the 2.5″ ribbon and the 1.5″ ribbons and add the ribbon tail stacks to each wreath tie.

Step 13

Trim the picks and sprays with pliers. Add them to your wreath base and add a drop of hot glue to each one to secure it in place.

Step 14

Trim bay leaf sprays (or greenery). Add them randomly throughout the wreath to add texture and color. Secure them in place with a dap of hot glue.
