First, take out the deco mesh and start making flowers or whatever decorative pattern you want on the wreath. We will wrap this around the wireframe later. Fix the flowers and designs in place with the pipe cleaners and zip ties. When you need to cut the deco mesh use the rotary cutters. Next, you have to attach the mesh to the wire frame. You can do this by using the zip ties present in the tools list.
Use the zip tie and join the mesh to the wire wreath form on the side of the inner ring. You must remember to attach the mesh at a cross bar. After your design is ready you have to start wrapping it around the wreath wire frame. Tie it securely with the pipe liners and fold the ribbons of the deco mesh around the wire frame.

This should create a poof which will be about three inches in width.
You must remember to keep twisting the burlap as you push it in the rings of the form. Each section of the wire form has enough space for about three or four burlap poofs. You have to take care not to push too many poofs into a single section or they will flatten and look very bad. Keep making poofs till the whole wreath form is filled. You may use the burlap to make the poofs fuller than three inches if you want.
You can keep attaching the poofs in the sections of the wire form till it is full. Finally, you have to use scissors to cut off the burlap. After that tie the loose end of the burlap very securely with one of the zip ties. Thus, your burlap wreath is now ready. Fluff the poofs out so that the wreath looks nice and full.

How To Make a Wreath with Fabric
The best thing about fabric wreaths is that they are really cheap and easy to make. You can make this wreath absolutely free of cost because all the materials are usually available at home. It is a great way to make use of old fabrics in the house such as old curtains, skirts, bedsheets, or any other old clothes. They can be a really thoughtful handmade gift that everyone will appreciate. Fabric wreaths look better if you use one solid colored fabric to make them. Patterns will also look good, but we find that solid and neutral colors look more impressive.
The materials required to make a wreath are quite simple. You will need about three meters of fabric or just use old curtains. You will also need a fourteen-inch frame of wire, a rotary cutter or scissors, and a ruler.
The first step of making this fabric item is cutting the fabric. You have to cut all of the cloth you have into long strips. The dimensions of the strips are 1.5 inches in width and 9 inches in length. Use the rotary cutter or the scissors in the tool list to cut the fabric into the strips. You can use scissors to cut the fabric but a rotary cutter is really fast and easy to use.
Thus, we advise you to use a pair of rotary cutters and an acrylic ruler to cut the fabric. First, cut the fabric into 1.5-inch strips. Then cut these 1.5-inch strips into 9 inch long strips. Then you have to start tying the fabric into the wire wreath form. Make loops and flowers by tying the fabric in different ways. Finally secure the fabric with zip liners. Thus your DIY fabric wreath is ready!
How To Make a Wreath with Material
Wreaths made out of different materials such as tulle or net look really beautiful and you can hang them on your front door or porch. You can also make them with materials available at home to minimize production costs. These can also be a great thoughtful gift! To start off you will need a wire wreath form, scissors, zip liners, and any material, like cloth, tulle, net, satin, or velvet. We prefer using cloth or tulle because satin or other smooth slippery materials are very difficult to make into poofs. They also do not hold their form.
After you have all your materials you can start with the process of making these material wreaths. Tear or cut the material into long strips. This will help you to tie it around the wire form. Now since you have all your material strips ready you can start tying them around the wire frame. Fold the strips in half and then put them under the wire frame. Then open the end of the material with the loop and pull the other end through it. In this way, the material will form a knot on the wire frame. You must make sure to pull the knot tight so that it does not open and damage it later.
Next, you have to keep repeating this process. Fold the strips, and pull the looped end from underneath the wire. While doing this you must remember to keep pushing the strips of the material together. Thus, at the end of this process, you will have very little space in between the material. Hence it will look very full and nice. You have to continue looping the remaining material around the wire form till it is completely full. After the wreath is complete, turn it over.
How To Make a Wreath With Ribbon
When you are using ribbon or burlap, the wreath is known as a ribbon wreath. We would advise you to use red satin ribbon so that these wreaths can be used for Easter and valentine’s day. You can also use them for Christmas after adding a few green decorations! You must remember to use a ribbon that has a wire in it to make this wreath. This is because an ordinary bubble will just collapse and not stay in place.
Hence you must use a ribbon with a wire in it to keep the ribbon bubbles in place. It is a little difficult to start making this wreath because in the beginning the ribbon moves around a lot and it is hard to maintain the bubbles. But as you move along the process of making the wreath it will get easier. As you add more and more rows of loops, the ribbon will stay in place.
How To Make a Wreath With Tulle

However, if you have not made a burlap wreath before do not worry, it is very simple to learn as well. Just follow the steps of making a burlap wreath using tulle instead of burlap and you will be able to make a tulle wreath.
