How to make a Mesh Ribbon Christmas Wreath: Step by Step Tutorial

Spools of three different pattern 2.5 inch ribbon, white deco mesh, a tube filled with various sizes of zip ties, scissors, wire cutters and 12 inch wired wreath frame.


  • 6 – spools of ribbon 2.5 x 10 yards (three different kinds)
  • 3 – spools of white deco mesh
  • 12″ wired wreath frame
  • Medium length zip ties or pipe cleaners (white or color to match your ribbon)
  • 6 decorative small ball shaped ornaments
  • Scissors
  • Small wire cutters
  • Ruler or measuring mat

1. Cut Ribbon & Deco Mesh

This project is easy but it will take some time. For this wreath, you are going to need three different design ribbons. I am using 2.5 inches x 10 yards of ribbon. Two spools of each design.

Cut the ribbons into 14 inches lengths. You will need 32 strips of each design.

Cut the deco mesh into 18-20 inches lengths. It tends to curl up. You can stack in a pile until ready to use. Cut 64 strips of deco mesh.

2. Cut Ends of Ribbon

On ribbon ends, you easily create a dovetail by folding the ribbon in half lengthwise. Then, cut from the fold at a right angle (on the diagonal) towards the corner. When you unfold it you will have the perfect dovetail.

3. Assembly of Wreath

Lay the mesh out in a criss-cross and layer the ribbon the same way over the mesh. With your hand, gather up the ribbon and mesh at the center.

Wrap a zip tie (or pipe cleaner) around the center and secure it to the middle two bars on the wreath frame. You will repeat this for 16 times.

With your remaining ribbon and deco mesh, you will repeat but only work in at the top and bottom to fill in gaps. You a trying to get it nice and full.

After you have created your wreath, go back with your fingers and turn any deco mesh ends under. It should curl under for a finished look. Fluffy and squish the ribbons into place as necessary.

4. Adding Embellishments (Optional)

Embellishments can be added to your wreath such as decorative ornaments. I found these glitter balls for .50 cents at Hobby Lobby. You can tuck them into your wreath and use the wire stem to wrap around the wreath frame. With wire cutters, trim of the ends.

5. Create a Loop for Hanging

Create a loop for hanging the wreath using a zip tie. Remember to trim the end of the zip tie.

An easy loop was created on the back of the wreath using a zip tie. You can also use a pipe cleaner. Trim off any extra with wire cutters.
