How much Deco mesh do you need to make a wreath?
You will need roughly 72 individual curls of deco mesh ribbon to create a full wreath. For a less full wreath, however, you can use 36 to 54 curls. At minimum, this project requires two rolls of 21-inch by 10-yd (32-cm by 9.1-m) deco mesh ribbon. You can use more than this if you want more colors.
How do you attach deco mesh to a wreath?
An even easier method that you can use to make a mesh wreath is described on lambertslately and it involves cutting pieces of deco mesh and letting them curl up to make a bunch of cylinder-like pieces. You then take these and twist a pipe cleaner around the center of each one and then attach them to a wire wreath.
What is the best tool to cut deco mesh?
Rotary Cutter – A rotary cutter is a tool created for cutting fabric but it can be a tremendous time saver when cutting deco mesh for your wreaths. Instead of scissors, use a sharp rotary cutter which not only saves time but also helps to cut down on the fraying that happens when you cut deco mesh.
