How To Make A Poof/Curly Deco Mesh Wreath For Fourth of July

There are multiple holidays throughout the year, but 4th of July is one of our favorites to decorate for! Not only can patriotic decor be used on this special day, but it can be used all year round.

This wreath is a perfect way to show your patriotism and support. It’s also a great way to add color to your exterior or interior.

Fiskars Rotary Cutter and Mat

Patriotic decorations 

Poof and Curl Instruction:

Step 1: First cut your rolls of deco mesh to 11” sections for the ruffle.

Step 2: Open up the ties at the bottom of the work wreath so no damage is done to your door. Start rolling the sections of mesh and making your poofs and placing sections in your ties on the bottom rung around the wreath. Don’t forget to alternate mesh colors. Once you complete the bottom layer, hide the raw edges in the back with the ties.

Step 3: As you move to the inner layers of your work wreath, double the layers of mesh to prevent gaps. Push the curls back as you go along.

Tip: Spray the edges of the curls with hairspray to prevent fraying!

Step 4: Cut your ribbon into 12” pieces. I like to use a minimum of 4 different ribbons but you can use this single roll if you prefer. Double your ribbon pieces, pinch them together and place then use the ties to keep them in varied places on your wreath. 

Step 5: Place your patriotic decorations in the desired places using the ties or pipecleaners for a stronger hold.

Congratulations, you’ve made your very own Fourth of July Poof/Curly Deco Mesh Wreath!
