How to Make Your Snowman Mesh Wreath
Follow these steps and in 20 minutes or less, you’ll have an adorable snowman wreath to hang on your door!
Take your snowman sign and turn it over. Add a dab of glue to the top, bottom, and both sides. Then, attach your mounts to those glue spots.
Take 2 pipe cleaners and cut them in half. Then, slip each half pipe cleaner through your glued-on mounts. Twist to secure.
Now, grab your wire wreath frame, and with the pipe cleaners already attached and pulled away from the center, take your snowman face sign and use the pipe cleaners on the back to attach it right in the middle of your wire wreath frame.
I recommend attaching opposite sides first to make sure that your sign is centered.
Take your higher quality mesh (not the iridescent) and cut it to 35 inches. You need 8 of these.
Take the thinner mesh (the iridescent one) and cut it to 30 inches. You need 10 of these.
Start with your ruffles on the bottom layer. With your first piece of iridescent mesh, curl the ends under, then scrunch the ends towards the middle to create your ruffle.
Add it to your wreath frame by tying one of the bottom pipe cleaners around the middle of your ruffle.
Repeat this 9 more times.
Time to do the layers on the top layer. Take your thicker mesh that’s 35 inches long and repeat the same process: curl the ends, scrunch into the middle, and tie to your frame using white pipe cleaners.
Add the hat by inserting the stem between the top layer of the mesh and the bottom layer of mesh.
Use a zip tie to secure the stem to the frame. Tighten and cut off the excess.
Fluff out the mesh, removing it just a tad from around the sign so you can see the entire face but not enough to expose the wreath frame.
I hope you love this mesh DIY snowman wreath design! Don’t forget to look for and buy the kit in case we have any left as you read this post.
If the kits are sold out, you can easily gather these supplies yourself and grab the sign on DecoExchange.
