Basic Summary

We cut up two rolls of 10 yd mesh into 20" pieces. Made ruffle/curls by rolling in the cut edges a bit and then ruffling. 

Place two ruffles in each twist. We opted not to add ribbon strips to this wreath since the mesh was so pretty. Carrie made a large bow and we attached it toward the bottom of the wreath. She made longer tails on this bow.

You can make bows by hand, or use something like the EZ Bowmaker. For me, the bowmaker is helpful because it keeps the loops all the same size. That's one of the problems I run into when making a free-handed bow. 

We attached the sign using chenille stems sort of off to the right side. Make a hanger for the wreath using a chenille stem, floral wire, binding wire, or even a zip tip. 

Fluff the ribbons and snip any mesh frays. 

That was pretty much it! There was ribbon left over of course. All the ribbon was wired which makes bow making easier for sure. And if you preferred, you could go back and add ribbon custers to the twists.
