Snowflake DecoMesh Wreaths

Materials You Will Need:
* Wire Wreath Frame (Provided)
* White DecoMesh (Provided)
* White Pipe Cleaners (Provided)
* Ribbon (Provided)
* Scissors (Not Provided)

1. Cut 6-8 pipe cleaners into thirds.
2. Decide the look and style of your wreath and if you want a full or very full wreath. If desiring a full wreath, cut the longer rolls of decomesh down the center while unrolling. For a very full wreath, do not cut the decomesh at all.
3. For the bunch method, take the end of the decomesh and wrap a pipe cleaner tight around it, then affix it to the wreath.
-For the ruffled method, cut a 18 inch length and pinch it in the middle the entire length of the 18 inches, then tie a pipe cleaner around the middle.
-For the loop method, cut an 8 inch square and roll it into a tight roll. Once you have 3-4 rolls, tie those together in the middle with a pipe cleaner.
4. Depending on your style, continue to bunch/attach the mesh and wrap pipe cleaners every 6-8 inches and attach that to the wreath.
5. Keep going all the way around until you have the desired look and fullness.
6. Once finished you can add extras like ribbons, signs, string beads, garland, ornaments, lights, etc.
