DIY Mesh Wreath "The Bees Are Out"

Posted by

The flowers are out in full bloom and the bees are pollinating.  This big guy will feel right at home resting in this DIY mesh wreath.  Follow along and see how I added bring spring to my front door.

This is what I used:

1 work wreath

1 roll burlap mesh

1 roll 2 1/2" ribbon

1 roll 1 1/2" ribbon

3 large long stem daisies

1 large bumble bee

Like always, I start adding the mesh on the inside ring of the work wreath.  Securing the end using the sprigs, I then gather the mesh every 11 10 12 inches and attach it as I work my way around the inside ring.

Once I go all the way around the inside I move to the outside and repeat the same thing.

Before I went any further with this project, I made a bow using the 2 ribbons. Notice in the picture I did not add streamers to the ribbon yet.

To attach the bow, I simply ran the wire through the mesh to the back side and wrapped it around the wreath frame.

Next I cut a piece of ribbon in each pattern, about 24 inches long.  Then I removed the wire from each side of both strips of ribbon.  This will allow the streamers to lay more loosely.  It also helps the streamers to fall back in place when the wind is blowing.

I connected the ribbon pieces together in the middle with a piece of floral wire.

I tucked the wire underneath the bow and wrapped it around the wreath frame.

Next I added the flowers.  This was really easy, I didn't even use glue. I inserted the stem down through an opening in the mesh.

And just wrapped it around the wire frame of the wreath. The sturdy wire stem will hold it in place.

All I had left to do was add my bumble bee.  I used the sprigs and just twisted them around his legs.

This DIY Mesh "Bumble Bee" Wreath to me about 30 minutes to make but I can enjoy it for months and months.  I'd say that makes it the perfect spring craft project.

Have a nice spring.
