IMG_3142

Here is such an easy DIY 4th of July deco mesh wreath that you can make for under $10. I got all the supplies at Dollar Tree.

What you will need is:

  • 6 rolls of decorative mesh ribbon (I used 2 of each color)
  • a wire frame
  • pipe cleaners or floral wire
  • ribbon or bows optional

First you will need to cut the mesh into 6×6 squares.

Next roll one of each color into tubes and fasten them together with a piece of pipe cleaner or floral wire.

Then fasten those onto the wire frame with the ends of the pipe cleaner.

And that’s it. Just fit as many around the frame as possible to get a really full look. You can also add ribbon or bows onto it to add even more special touches.
