  1. […] Continue gathering and scrunching the mesh together all around the wreath, making sure to fluff as you go so that you’ll have a good idea of how it’s taking shape.  Once you’ve completely filled the form with the first layer, you’ll want to repeat the process for the second one. I wanted the outer layer to be less tightly bunched together, so I used two stems for each segment. I placed the stems on the second wire from the outside of the form.  Follow the same process all around the form. Fluff it all out and make any needed adjustments. That’s the beauty of deco mesh~it will do just what you want it to do! I picked up several items to use as embellishments for the wreath. I like to place them on the wreath without adhering them to get a better idea of what will work in what spot on the wreath. Once I’m happy with the layout, I begin to secure them in place. I used hot glue for this one.  I loved this shimmery leaf. I used two of these. I used two small pumpkins and some ribbon loops for more dimension.  I used brown ribbon and tied it over the form to make a loop for hanging. Berry picks were added at the center top and bottom of the wreath.  Using orange ribbon and brown ribbon, I tied bows around the looped ribbon.  I’m not the fastest person when making these. It took about 2 and a half hours from start to finish, but I think it was worth the added time to make sure that it had the fullness and the overall look that  I wanted.  I hope they will enjoy this touch of autumn.  Post shared on~ Show Me Saturday Pure Blog Love […]
