4th of July Mesh Wreath
I saw the rolls of mesh at the craft store and wanted to try making a wreath for the 4th of July. I love how it turned out!
- red mesh
- blue mesh
- white mesh
- 18" wire wreath form
- floral wire
- wire cutters
- wooden stars
- white paint
- paint brush
- white felt
- hot glue gun
- Wrap a piece of wire around the end of the blue mesh. Attach to inner ring of the wreath form.
- Measure 10 inches of mesh, then pinch together in the middle. Wrap a piece of wire around the pinched section and attach to the frame, about 2 inches over from the previous spot.
- Continue to attach the blue mesh along the inner ring (every 2 inches) until you are about 1/3 of the way around, then move to the ring above it. Repeat until you have attached mesh to all of the rings.
- Now attach the red mesh to the outer ring and the 3rd ring. Attach white mesh to the 2nd and 4th rings.
- Cut small pieces of felt, trim them so they won't show past the edges of the stars. Also cut pieces of wire, about 4 inches long.
- Put glue on the back of the stars, press the center of a piece of wire into the glue, then press the piece of felt onto the glue. Allow glue to dry.
- Paint the stars white and allow to dry.
- Use the wires to attach the stars to the blue area of the wreath.
