FAQs

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about the patent pending pancake wreath frame.

How many wreaths does 1 roll of mesh (10″x10 yds) make on the patent pending pancake wreath frame?

1 roll will make (if you cut them at 20″):

  • three small wreaths on the 10″ wreath frame
  • or one large wreath on the 14″ wreath frame and one small wreath on the 10″ wreath frame

How do you keep the wreath design thin?

You can use single loop bows or a door hanger bow (shown in tutorial above). Multi-ribbon bows can get fairly thick really quickly, so keeping the bow on the simpler side should help.

Also, since we’re not adding poofs under the ruffles, the overall thickness is greatly reduced.

Can you add greenery to this design?

You could, just be mindful on how much you add because the goal in this design is to keep it thin.

What size sign works best for these frames?

For the 10″ frame, a 10″ sign will work. Anything larger than that will work on the 14″ frame.

Why use a string to tie the bow in this design?

It’s flatter than a pipe cleaner or zip tie and will remain visible in the design.
