If you decide to use the wire frame instead of the foam wreath form refer to the directions in the above video.
Foam Wreath Form Directions (not shown in video):
- Pin the stems to the wreath using the floral pins. Cover the upper side of the wreath with the stems. Since you’re using light colored geo mesh, the wreath frame will be easily seen if you don’t cover it.
- Starting on one end of a stem, gather the geo mesh and pin it. Tuck in the ends of the mesh to ensure there are no strings hanging.
- Gather about 8-10 inches of your geo mesh to make a loop then secure it with a pin. If you want a bigger loop, gather more inches; if you want a smaller one, gather fewer inches.
- Continue making loops until you cover the entire wreath with the mesh.
- Pin one edge of the ribbon to the back of the wreath. Roll it round the frame.
- Affix the ornaments and trimmings on the wreath using the hot glue gun.
- Hang your wreath on your door, wall, or fireplace.
