A “Fun” & Whimsical Deco Mesh Wreath

I woke up one day and had a bright idea! That happens to me a lot…haha…I have my best ideas first thing in the morning—I have no idea why that is, probably because my mind is forever moving and trying to come up with the next craft to create or room to decorate during the day, so when I sleep, ideas finally have a chance to come to the surface.  Anyway, that morning’s bright idea was that I wanted to create a wreath for our daughter Christin’s Kindergarten classroom. I knew how she had her room decorated, it was done up in owls and soft greens & blues…It looks so sweet! So I decided that a deco mesh wreath would be the perfect thing to pair with her room’s decor. 🙂  And when I found this Owl Trio in Hobby Lobby one day, I just couldn’t resist, I had to build a wreath around them!

I have made a video tutorial for my YouTube crafting channel, and I’ll put a link for that below, but first, I’ll give you a list of the supplies that I used to create this ‘fun’ and whimsical wreath (the first three letters of Christin’s last name are F-U-N, and her students call her Miss Fun, so I had to incorporate those letters into this wreath. 🙂

Okie dokie, here goes:

  • 1- 16″ Metal Work Wreath with the chenille ties already attached
  • 1 Large (21″ x 24′) Roll of White Deco Mesh
  • 1 10″ Roll of Teal Deco Mesh
  • 1 Roll of Teal wired Craft Ribbon (for a bow)
  • 3 Wooden letters of your choosing
  • A Wooden Owl Trio (or any other accent piece of your choosing)
  • Gerber Daisies to match (I chose 3 gold, 3 blue, & 3 pink ones to match the owls)
  • Hot Glue Gun, Scissors, & Pipe Cleaners

Here is a picture of the finished wreath—I am very happy with the final result! 🙂
