Highlights

Cut 18 pieces of base mesh (red with green, white border) 20" in length. Should use up the entire roll. 

Roll each end and scrunch up in the middle. Attach to a twist going around outer and inner rings.

Cut 9 pieces of the white mesh and 9 pieces of the lime mesh. Cut pieces 12" in length. Make a "curl" and attach one in each twist, alternating colors. You will have mesh left over.

Ribbon Strips: Cut the 2.5" width ribbon 13" in length and the 1.5" width ribbon in 12"

Choose two ribbons and layer the narrow ribbon on top of the wider ribbon.

Attach a ribbon cluster to the twist. Decide where you want to position your bow and you can leave the ribbon cluster off those twists if you choose. 

Sign: Attach sign with chenille stems. You can staple the chenille stems to the sign (take care that your staple doesn't go thru the sign) or use cable mounts that have been glued to the back of the sign. We'll be getting some of the cable mounts in stock real soon!

Bow: Make a bow using the method of your choice. Nick used a Bowdabra and we can give you an Amazon link for this. You can also use an EZ Bowmaker or just do a free hand bow.

Nick added in a couple of extra ribbons to his bow that are not in the kit. But if you don't have extra ribbon to use, you can always just repeat with ribbon that comes in the kit.

Nick attached his bow to the bottom of the wreath and the sign in the center. Play with the positioning of the sign and bow and just go with your preference. 

Here's a link to a blog post we did a while back showing how we mounted a Bowdabra to a board: Does Your Bowdabra Slip Around? Fix it!

Poinsettias: Attach the poinsettias using hot glue, trim the stems as needed. If you don't have hot glue, you can also secure the poinsettias with chenille stems, floral wire or zip ties. Secure to the wreath frame.

Make a hanger for your wreath using chenille stems, floral wire or a zip tie. Check the back of the wreath and make sure you don't have anything sharp sticking out that would scratch your door.
