Perfect wreath tutorial for 4th of July!

I love this ruffle style mesh wreath made with red, white and blue poly burlap mesh. I also threw in some burlap mesh as well. This is an easy to follow wreath tutorial that’s sure to make you want to try it. Here are the materials you’ll need to create this beautiful wreath:

3 rolls of poly burlap mesh (I added some random burlap mesh ruffles throughout as well)

2 rolls of 2 1/2″ ribbon (I used patriotic colors)

24″ work wreath (the wreath is 15″ in diameter- approx. 24″ when completed)

large center element

decorative wire picks

various embellishments

scissors

wire cutters

zip ties

hot glue

ruler

a rotary cutter makes it much easier- but it’s not imperative


I started with red, white, and blue mesh

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I laid each roll on top of the next so I’d be cutting all three at the same time.

You’ll cut the mesh every 10.” This will create 10″ squares since the mesh is 10″ wide. There are 18 twists on a work wreath. If you fill each twist with two ruffles, that’s 36. If you triple up your rolls, you’ll need to make 13 cuts (13 x 3 = 36). You can add more ruffles to each twist if you want it more full- but two work just fine.
