I am so excited about how this Halloween wreath turned out!!! I am so glad I already have a Halloween "Creepy Wreath" on the front door, because I want to look at this one!
|the color is so terrible in this picture.. it's really so bright and sparkly!|
I keep seeing Mesh decor on Pinterest... LOVE it! This is my first attempt at using it, and truthfully I thought it would be a little easier to work with. I thought it would be more like working with wired ribbon, but there is definitely no wire in this.. thus no "stay put" factor. So the biggest trick is to master (?) attaching the mesh to the wire frame. ***It got much easier as I worked.
*Start with your first color and attach it to the wreath form using the wire (just scrunch it up and wrap the wire and twist it to tighten.) Then start making loops around the wreath, attaching with the wire. I found it worked best to alternate the bar that i used. I started on the inside, and worked up and then back down so spread the purple through out.

*Working the 3rd color in really helped to achieve the fullness I wanted.
