Football season is upon us and I thought I would show off our school spirit with a deco mesh school pride wreath. I customized this wreath to our local high school team, however you can make a version for the team of your choice. Just grab supplies in your school colors and get to work on this project that will have you and your neighbors cheering on your favorite team. Follow along as I show you how to make a mesh wreath.
- Mesh Ribbon (in your choice of colors)
- Wire Wreath Form
- Pipe Cleaners (in your choice of colors)
- Cutting Machine (or other means of cutting logo/mascot)
- Vinyl (in your choice of colors)
- Hot Glue
- Tacky Glue
Start by making the deco mesh wreath. Tie pipe cleaners onto the wreath form in various locations.
Now it is time to cut a logo or mascot for the center of your wreath. You can probably find a version online. Add that to your Silhouette software and trace to cut out multiple layers of chipboard. If you do not have an electronic craft cutter, trace and use scissors to cut out your logo.
Cut the same logo from vinyl and layer it on top of the chipboard. The logo I chose for our school is a bit complicated so it was not looking like much yet. This may be all you need to do for most school logos.
Ours has an inset in blue so I cut that out of blue vinyl. I layered that onto my chipboard logo. You can see the finished version below along with the smaller version I was trying to mimic. Pretty good, right?
