Lori here! Today’s blog is going to go over how you can make a deco mesh Happy Hanukkah Wreath. I have had many requests for a Hanukkah wreath. Before starting this project I did some research on Hanukkah and found out about the colors sliver & blue. This wreath could be displayed on someone’s door or inside the home. Let’s get started!

Ribbon cut at 12” inches
Mesh cut at 30” inches
Start: The first thing we’re going to do is cut our mesh and get everything all prepped out you will need 18 pieces of each mesh at 30” inch. After we get done the cutting is mesh I like to take my wreath frame and open all the ties up putting the center ties towards the middle and putting the outer ties.
Next Step will begin a ruffle you will grab your first option of mesh and you’re going to place it flat on the table you want to make sure it’s flat and if you need a guide you can put something heavy on the other end to help you keep it flat. (In the video on YouTube I do show you TWO little trick to do with the roll from 10” mesh check it out at 4:28)
To create a ruffle all you’re going to do is place your fingers and your thumb in the center and walk your fingers up it by pulling the mesh towards you and letting your fingers do the work. Tie the ruffle onto the wreath frame, starting on the outside of the frame. Twist the tie around the center of the ruffle. It should look like a bow.
Make your own thing and do what works for you if you need help to guide please check out the YouTube video to help you with different options on doing a ruffle. Continue to do the Ruffles around the wreath frame, adjusting the mesh as you need.
Placing Ribbon: Then you will move onto the ribbon tails. I’m using a couple of different ribbon options for this project. The ribbon was cut at 12inches. Putting two together and find Center do a great pinch
( See Image 2 ) in that middle and then place them on the ties you do not need to undo the ties you have the mesh in place right above and then twist a couple times and then tuck the ties on the way. You will want to fan out the ribbons and I like to place them so one design is going one way and the other one’s going the other way making a pattern between the two ribbons. This helps not cover up any mesh it just helps bring out the mesh and makes the wreath look full and those ribbons laying nicely against the mesh. For this wreath, I will put the ribbon in every tie.
HARDWORKING MOM TIP: When placing the ribbon I also like to take my two fingers with the pinch in the center and pull my two fingers to make sure to create a nice little hump through my ribbon this helps them lay correctly.
Placing the sign: I will take my Beadsmith Smith hole punch (which is available in my Amazon store or any local craft stores) I like to use this Bead Smith because the holes are a lot tinier. The next thing I do is I take my 22 gauge silver wire and measure it about 18 inches long I do this four times, one for each corner of the sign.
I will start by taking the wire and slipping it through the first hole and I want to make sure that I’m putting the wire towards the back. Loop it in there and then twist it around a few times to make sure it’s nice and tight on there and that it’s showing not showing from the front.
The next thing I do is place my sign directly in the middle of the wreath and then I want to make sure that my mesh does not get squished down. Taking the wires I’m going to go around where the work ties are in place and attach to the frame. If you are having trouble finding the center you and go through the ruffle it will not hurt them. It helps sometimes to flip the wreath on the side so you can see through the back so you can make sure it’s attached to the frame and it’s not going to move. Make sure you cut and tuck any leftover wire.
Last Steps: To finish up this beautiful wreath you’re going to want to make sure your ribbons are pulled out from behind the sign so you can see them and then make sure you lay them out nicely onto the wreath and then my favorite part the shake test!
