    MAKING THE BASIC WREATH

    The photos show contrasting colors for clarity.
    To make the basic deco mesh wreath, you’ll need a 16" dia. wire wreath frame, a 10 yard roll of 21" wide mesh, matching color chenille stems, and a pair of scissors.

    Twist 22 chenille stems around the wreath form, alternating between the inner and outer rings and evenly spacing the stems on the rings.

    Continue measuring, gathering, and securing loops until there are only 6 chenille stems without mesh loops (photo 8). Check to make sure you have enough mesh for the remaining 6 loops. If there is not enough for 16" loops, adjust the last 6 loops to be a bit smaller. Once the wreath is finished, you won’t be able to tell the difference.

    Easter wreath

    Use the lavender mesh to make a Basic Wreath.

    Use chenille stems to attach the cross to the wreath, gluing as necessary. Hot glue the lilies, buds, and branch stems to the wreath, using chenille stems as necessary.
