Optional Steps:

If you would like to add a ribbon to each curly deco mesh pick, add a ribbon cut 2″ shorter than the length you cut your deco mesh at. In my case, I used 6″ ribbon lengths for my 8″ deco mesh lengths. BEFORE you add the pipe cleaner in step 5, place the ribbon on top of the deco mesh rolls.

You can also use mesh tubing for wreaths, like I did in my Dollar Tree Witch Hat wreath that adds depth to your picks.

Next, place the pipe cleaner over the top, just as in step 5 and twist to secure together.

Assembling the Curly Deco Mesh Picks on The Wire Wreath Form

Once the deco mesh picks are assembled, it’s time to start placing them on the wire wreath form. For this wreath, I used an 18″ wire wreath form, however, typically speaking, a 12″ wire wreath form is plenty big and yields a beautiful wreath!

I created a template to show you where to place the picks. The “Xs” mark round one. Come back for a second round “Os” and fill in any gaps! Basically, it’s all about alternating rows! Continue for the entire wreath!

Fill & Fluff

Assemble your wreath and then hang it on your door or wall. Step back, look to see if you see any gaps. *I always take a photo of the wreath and look at it, because for some reason, you always notice the imperfections in a photo! Fill any gaps by either fluffing or adding more curly deco mesh picks!
