Maybe it’s not the same where you live, but here in Indiana, many of us have a screen door along with the regular front door. While this is great when you are wanting to “let some air in” or freshen up the house, it makes it difficult if you are wanting to decorate your home for every season or holiday. A screen door is a nonnegotiable a lot of times. For some reason or another, it has to stay! That doesn’t mean you can’t have a beautiful wreath. Let me show you how to make a Valentine wreath you can hang on a screen door.
This tutorial works not only for making a wreath to hang with a screen door. If you are a beginner wreath maker, this is a great wreath with which to start. Want to craft with the little ones? My grandchildren love to “gobble up” the mesh with me…You’ll understand once you watch the video! 😂
Also, if you are needing a wreath for a small space, such as a nursing home, apartment or condo, this wreath size should be perfect!
- 12-14” Wire Wreath Form
- 1-3 Rolls of 10″ Deco Mesh (Cut into 20-30″ strips. You will need 12 strips)
- Wired Ribbons (I like to use two 2.5″ ribbons and four 1.5″ ribbons cut to 12-13″ strips)
- Sign for Wreath (optional)
- Pipe Cleaners
- Scissors, wire cutters, hot glue, staple gun/metal punch depending on if you add a sign
I hope you will give this wreath design a try! I am always telling my wreath making group members to have fun and please don’t stress on it!!
Remember…anything can be undone and repositioned. Once you get your first few wreaths under your belt, I am sure you will realize how rewarding it can be to see your gorgeous wreath hanging on your front door! Soon, the neighbors will be asking you to make one for them!!
