I have been doing demos with this stuff all week at work. So I thought I would share the how to's here. I have been using 18" straw wreaths ever since I ran us out of foam (it is cheaper too).
Supplies: 1 roll of 21" wide decorative mesh, floral pins, 18" straw or foam wreath.


Step 2 - Gather and pin edge with floral pin onto top of wreath. Make sure this first pinning is where you can pull the mesh up and over to cover the pin.




Step 3 - Measure out about 12" of mesh, gather and pin 3" from the first pin.



Step 4 - Repeath the 12" of mesh, gather, pin 3" from last pin all the way around the top surface of the wreath. Do not twist - just gather



Step 5 - Once you have come all the way back around start gathering and pinning beneath the top loops, again 12" of mesh, 3" pinning spaces. This should finish out the roll. If you have little bit left just tuck and pin behind the wreath.



Congrats, you are done! Embellish with a bow or floral accents if you like. How easy was that?
