My First Deco Mesh Christmas Wreath

After my success with my Ravens Wreaths, I needed to try my hand at Christmas wreaths.  The one above is the first one, and the one below is my second one.  I am pleased with their turnout.  I tried to keep the decoration simple, I think they look best this way.  I have seen some pretty loud and gawdy wreaths at some craft shows.  I am using a combination of tubes and cut piece ruffles.  I start with two differnt color tubes crossed and go around the wreath frame attaching the tubes to each section (6 sections to a frame).  I follow with a layer of ruffles, another layer of tubes, and a last layer or two of ruffles.  They are full and really beautiful.  They look much better IRL.

This is the second wreath I finished this afternoon.  Very similar, except this one has no green and has silver accents.  I just sold this to a friend in Arizona through Facebook.  I was only going to make three of these for the craft show, but looks like I may sell the other one before the show as well.  I will have to order more supplies from the craft outlet soon.  I have sold 2 raven's wreaths and one Christmas wreath this week.  This is becoming a very lucrative craft!


  1. These wreaths are so popular right now. I agree that they need to be kept fairly simple because the wreaths themselves are quite busy. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup. I'm sure it's not intentional, but I am not seeing a link back to the party. Now following.

    1. Hi Jann, my sister Vicki actually added me to Share Your Cup and didn't convey to me that I should return the link. I have no problems with that, will put up a link to you today, thanks for visiting!
