How to make a mesh wreath Part 1
hi this is Serena Wilson and I with hot

mesh

boutique and I started this company this small business because I love to craft and I love making rates and I want you to as well so this is a little tutorial video but this is also just think of it as a journey into creating some really beautiful things and these

make

really good gifts too so let's go ahead and get started now the basic things you're going to need are a this looks kind of funky right now but this is a working

wreath

and you can get these at any craft store I prefer the ones from Hobby Lobby personally but there are several and then you're going to use that that's going to be your base you're going to pick out some deco

mesh

and this is really fun to work with door now before we get started

es on the right ruler in the middle working

wreath

on the left okay so one important thing to do is to open up your

wreath

all right so now we're going to put the deco

mesh

on the

wreath

so I've got everything lined up appropriately now I'm going to take the base color which is going to be the white and then the funky one on the top and we are going to take them like this and I'm just going to bunch them together and it's almost like I'm making a tail see how I did that I'm going to move this over then I'm going to attach this tail right here okay see how I did that all right now I'm going to take my lovely measuring device here and I'm going to measure out about 12...

inches here and then I'm just going to bunch it up and put it in my next one and then you just have to go one two two twists

make

it kind of snug you know so it doesn't really move around too much so just worry about getting it in there getting the right size and then we'll go around so now that I've shown you how to do one you're going to go around the outer circle and then we are going to after I do this next one see you're going to do the same thing with this one okay so this is what we end up with right now before we get to the actual beginning so we are coming back to where we started from so this is the first one right here with the tail right so now we are almost to that but we're not going to get to that we are now going to jump on over into the inner ring okay so you're going to measure like you normally do and then I'm going to put this see how this one's catty quarter now I've measured it I'm ready to go and I'm going to jump from this one to the next one in the inner ring I'm going to just jump on over right here okay and then we're going to do the twist twice and then now here's the fun

part

now you get to do it on the inner

part

so now this one you kind of have to guesstimate a little bit more unless you have a ruler but now you're going to go like this and do your 12 inches on the inside and you're going to twist like that and then I'm going to do that again all the way along the inner...

along this inner circle with each one and I'll show you that all right we're at the very last one so here we go we're going to go back to where we had crossed over here and we are going to go and finish it right here at the very inner ring okay so just like that now you're at the very end so we are going to cut our tail we're going to cut it kind of long here doesn't have to be perfect just like that and then we are going to tuck it with the other one the other tail see I've got my beginning one and the ending one and we're just going to tuck it in the reason they call it a working

wreath

is because behind it it doesn't have to be pretty this is where all the works done so there you go just tuck it in like that and this is how you know where your top is okay now if you don't want it to be noticeable you can cover it up with fluff that's fine but otherwise sometimes I put a bow here or I put something to let me know that I know that's where my top is okay so now you've got the finished

wreath

not finished with the basic

part

of it finished alright so now here comes the fun

part

of kind of messing with it a little bit the cool thing about

mesh

is that it's pliable obviously and it's really fun to work with it just kind of it can go where you want it to and

make

all kinds of different see how that just kind of

make

s a little eyes of different shapes and you kind of want to get underneath it and just really open it up...

see how that kind of opened it up a lot and it

make

s it where it's just a lot fuller looking see big improvement okay and then you just half the fun is just kind of messing with it and getting it the shape you want now this one I didn't want a look one payment doesn't that happen sometimes alright so I didn't want the middle

part

to be open so see how it's just coming over crowded with

mesh

right here that's using the twelve inches now if you wanted the open

part

if you wanted it to be more open here and a little more thinner around here so you can have something in the middle like and some people hang an ornament do all kinds of stuff if you want that open

part

to be or that middle

part

to be open you're going to want to use about ten inches or less and then you can kind of fluff it
