Steps for Making the Lime Yellow Poof and Woodland Ruffle Wreath
Follow the steps below along with the video to make your very own Designer Wreath.
Poof and Ruffle Instruction:
Step 1: First you will need to cut your deco mesh to make the ruffles. In this tutorial, I cut 18 – 20” pieces from the 10” yellow and white deco mesh roll;
Step 2: Next, using your 15” Green Work Wreath Form open all the ties on the bottom rung of the work wreath. Start making your poofs using the 20” yellow basic deco mesh. Use a zip tie to start the first poof by placing in on the bottom rung just before the tie. I measure out a 10” poof, fluffing them as I move along making sure the edges of the mesh are tucked under. Once you complete the top layer, trim from the roll. Use a zip tie to attach the raw edge of the mesh end to the back of the work wreath.
Step 3: Moving on to making the Woodland Ruffles. Using the 10” fabric mesh start by curling both ends of the mesh towards each other by rolling three times, then gather the middle to form the ruffle, placing the side with curls on top in the first tie, then continue through to all 18 ties.
Tip: Using a mesh roller will help if you struggle with pulling the mesh as you move along making the poofs.
Designer Note: Save money by using an inexpensive basic deco mesh for making the poofs. You only need this layer to add color behind your layer of mesh ruffles.
Ribbons, Sign, and Bow:
Step 4: Cut your ribbon tails into 12” inch strips for a total of 18 – 12” ribbon tails for each ribbon you plan to use. In this tutorial, I use a total of 4 different ribbons using two ribbon tails for each tie. Place your two ribbon tails together and insert them into the wreath form filling all 18 ties.
Step 5: Next, add your sign. In this tutorial we are using a sign I purchased from one of my vendors, however you can find my signs to purchase at my Hard Working Mom Store. Using the metal hole punch place a hole into each corner of the metal sign. Cut 4 – 20” inches pieces of 26 gauge silver floral wire and run each piece thru the 4 holes. Attach the sign in your preferred location, then move on to making the bow.
Step 6: To make your bow in this wreath tutorial, I use a combination of the ribbons used in the wreath base. You can watch the video to see detailed instructions on how to make the bow and how to attach it to your wreath.
That’s it! You Made Your Very Own Lime Yellow Wreath!
Designer Tip: Using leftover deco mesh rolls is a great way to get the most of your supplies! Always, remember to trim all the excess wires and hide all the mechanics giving your wreath a professional designer finish and make sure to shake your finished wreath checking that everything is good and secure.
