Burlap and Mesh Wreaths Materials:
Rolls of burlap color deco mesh ribbon

Burlap Mesh Wreaths Directions:
- Take a piece of floral wire and attach the one end of the mesh to the backside of the wire form.
- Push the mesh through the outer opening of the wire form to make a three-inch loop on the front side. Successively, push it through the middle and then the inside openings in the same process.
- Repeat the previous step until the entire wire form is covered. If the deco mesh roll is finished, secure the last end to the backside of the wreath with a floral wire. Now, take a new roll and secure its one end to the point where the first roll was finished. Repeat the second step.
- When the entire wreath is covered, push the loops together to make them look compact and full. Then, pull the loops apart a bit so that they look fluffy and hide any visible part of the wreath form behind them.
- Glue or wire a colorful ribbon or pre-made bows to the wreath to give it a sprightly vibe for spring.

Wreath Ideas for Different Seasons
With Memorial Day around the corner, you could add a patriotic ribbon or pre-made patriotic bows to your deco mesh wreaths. Just wire the ribbon along the shape of the wreaths or secure the bows with hot glue gun.
Give the wreaths a summer flavor by adding a chicken wire ribbon along them and attaching foam starfishes and small balls and faux oysters. They will give your burlap wreaths a stunning seaside look, perfect for the summer season.
You can even use them during the fall season too just by attaching and securing fall flowers with hot glue gun and glue sticks. Any kind of fall swag or a cute fall sign will also do the trick.

Making such beautiful mesh wreaths will cost you only a small fortune because the supplies are inexpensive. You can get them at the floral section of any large craft stores.
