Supplies Needed

Deco Mesh Halloween Wreath Instructions

Follow along as I guide you through the process step-by-step of making this fun Halloween deco mesh wreath. 

Step 1

Begin by taking your ring wreath frame and adding pipe cleaners to it. There are two rings of holes. Follow the pattern of inserting one pipe cleaner into the inner hole, then the next pipe cleaner goes into the outer hole.

Continue alternating all the way around the ring.

Step 2

Take your orange deco mesh and make 10” poufs in the inner row of pipe cleaners.

Step 3

Take your 30” strips of mesh and make ruffles out of them. Alternating colors, insert one ruffle into each pipe cleaner on the outer ring of the frame as you work your way around.

Repeat the same process around the inner ring of the frame using the 20” strips of mesh and alternating colors.

Step 4

Prepare your sign by adding a dab of super glue to each corner and placing a mounting square on top of the glue. Insert a pipe cleaner into each mounting square.

Set the sign aside and let it dry.

Step 5

Let’s make a simple bow.

Take your 4” ribbon and make one 14” tail to the bottom, two 7” loops, and one shorter tail towards the top (in an “X” shape).

Repeat the process with your first 2.5” ribbon, making the tails the same length and the loops slightly smaller at about 6.5”.

And repeat again with your first 1.5” ribbon, making the loops smaller at 6”.

Add another layer (following the process) with your second 2.5” ribbon, making the loops 5.5”.

Next, take your second 1.5” ribbon and follow the same process, making both loops around 5”.

Finally, grab your last 1.5” ribbon and repeat the process again, making two long tails and one 4.5” inch center loop. 

Grab a 20” zip tie and wrap it around the center of your bow. Twist it tight by twisting the bow, not the twist tie. 

Attach your bow (using the pipe cleaner) to the left side of the wreath base and dovetail the ribbon tails

Step 6

Using the pipe cleaners on the back of the sign, attach the sign to the bottom right side of the wreath base.

Step 7

Let’s make some ribbon tails!

Cut (8) 14” ribbon tails from your 4” ribbon.

Next, cut (8) 14” ribbon tails from 1.5” ribbon.

Dovetail all the ends and stack a 1.5” tail on top of a 4” ribbon tail.

Step 8

Take one ribbon tail stack and fold it in the middle. Pinch it, then fold it and insert it into one of the pipe cleaners on the wreath. Work your way around the outside of the wreath.

Then add any additional ribbon tails as needed where it looks bare in the middle of the wreath.

Step 9

Trim off excess pipe cleaner pieces and add a pipe cleaner to the top of the wreath board frame to create a hanger.

Fluff everything out, dovetail any ends of ribbon you missed, and your wreath is complete!

I hope you love this design as much as I do. It’s simple to make, and since it uses ribbon tails instead of bows, it’s slightly less expensive to make. That means you can make it faster, price it lower, and give your customers a better value. They’ll buy it right out from under you!
