Ribbons cut -12in
Mesh cut – 15in
2.5in Grey wine ribbon
Begin by cutting your mesh into 15 inch sections. You won’t need much- I used 4 sections of mesh. Next, we are going to take a look at the grapevine and decide which side doesn’t look so great. (mis-shaped, frayed, etc.) This will be the side we place our sign on.
On the opposite side of the grapevine, I will measure out the work tie garland and cut. There will be about 5 ties on the portion that you cut.
To create poof curls for the grapevine, let the mesh curl in its natural direction. Pinch the curl about 4 inches from each end and secure each side in a different tie. Make sure the opening in the mesh is facing downward!
The space between the two ties will create a poof. Pull and stretch that mesh to create more volume. To create your next curl, let the mesh curl in its natural direction, pinch 4 inches from each side, and when placing in ties overlap one side onto the last tie you secured on the wreath. Continue adding poof curls to your wreath!
For my ribbon, I used all 4 ribbon patterns and alternated them onto the curls on the grapevine.
To put the sign on the grapevine, punch holes in the top and bottom and run floral wire through the sign as well as through the back of the wreath.
