This is a very lovely handmade scarecrow mesh fall wreath. If you are into DIY, this project is for you! It would be great to keep for yourself or give as a gift.

Materials

  • 14” metal wreath form
  • 2 packages of decorative mesh (brown, orange and yellow patterned)
  • 1 package of ribbon tulle (gold with leaves)
  • 1 roll chevron ribbon (white with orange, green and red chevron stripes)
  • 1 roll orange burlap ribbon
  • 15 fuzzy sticks/chenille stems
  • 2 pack of scarecrow picks

Tools

  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun loaded with glue

Instructions

Before you start, note:
that you will need a total of 30 bunches of ribbon/mesh/tulle. You will have
roughly enough for 5 bunches on each of the 6 sections in the wreath form. You
will make 6 bunches with 4 pieces, then the remaining 24 pieces with 3 bunches.
If you are able to do more than 6 punches with 4 pieces, that’s fine

  1. Cut all of your ribbons and mesh into 6-inch lengths.
  2. Cut each fuzzy stick/chenille stem in half.
  3. Roll each piece of mesh into a tighter tube.
  4. Roll each piece of the ribbon tulle diagonally.
  5. Gather 3-4 pieces of mush, ribbon, and/or tulle; laying each piece on top of the other, in a snowflake-like pattern. Alternate between them all, to achieve them whimsical look of this wreath.
  6. Wrap a chenille stem around the bunch and twist 3 times.
  7. Repeat steps 5-6 until you have 30 bunches.
  8. Now it’s time to start attaching the bunches to the wreath. Lay the chenille stem over the inner two wires on the wreath and twist the stems together three times to secure.
  9. Repeat this step over the entire wreath, attaching 5 bunches to each of the 6 sections. You will want to pace them so that the different ribbons are somewhat evenly scattered throughout the wreath.
  10. Once all of the bunches are attached, you will fluff them out with your hands, until
    you get the look you desire.
  11. Break the sticks off of each scarecrow.
  12. Attach the 2 scarecrows to the wreath using hot glue, and stick them to some of the ribbon to hold them in place.
