How To Make This Vintage Santa Mesh Christmas Wreath

You know we love working with deco mesh! There are so many techniques from the minimal fray ruffle to poof and ruffle. I love them all!

Do you have a personal favorite? Let us know in the comments.

Check out the poof and ruffle in action in this wreath. It’s a technique that allows you to quickly and beautifully cover a wreath in mesh.

Note: We got our vintage Santa face from Out in the Country Blanks. They have so many designs- we definitely recommend checking them out.

DIY Christmas Wreath Video Tutorial

Directions:

Note: Make sure to watch the video tutorial above for more detailed instructions.

  1. Attach 4 pipe cleaners around the back edge of the Santa face.
  2. Attach Santa face to the center of the 15-24″ work-frame.
  3. Cut your 10″ snowball mesh into 30″ strips – you need 18 of them total. (You need one per twist tie on your work frame)
  4. Take each piece of 30″ mesh, lay it flat, and scrunch it up. Start from the cut edge to the other. It should look like a giant ruffle/bow tie in your hand.
  5. Add the 30″ ruffle into each twist tie on the work-frame.
  6. Attach two pipe cleaners to each side of your Santa hat and secure it onto the top of your wreath – I prefer mine at an angle.
  7. (Optional) take your deco mesh tubing and cut 18 strips that are 24″ long.
  8. (Optional) Make a bow tie with the tubing and add it to each twist.
