DIY Spiral Deco Mardi Gras Wreath

32 days until one of my FAVORITE holidays - Mardi Gras!

The picture above is the Mardi Gras wreath I made this year for our front door. This wreath might look complicated to make, but it's actually very easy. It's a bit larger then 3', so it's a huge statement piece for any front door. When I looked online, these wreaths cost $80-100 to buy.  

The instructions below are from 2012 when I made the same wreath for the Fall season. We still put it up, and it still looks the same! Follow the instructions below to make your own wreath for around $25

What you mill need to make your own spiral deco mesh wreath:

2 rolls to deco mesh. They are 21" wide and 10 yards long
Pipe cleaners
18" wire wreath


To make the spirals, cut the mesh into 10" pieces. I didn't measure anything, just guesstimate. Now you can tightly roll the mesh in the center to make a spiral. Make sure it doesn't unravel.

Roll 4 spirals this same way. Collect them all and fan them out, holding center.

Use a pipe cleaner to secure them in the center.

Secure the bunches to the wire wreath. Don't worry if it doesn't look full now, it will by the time you get all the bunches on.

This is what it looks like from the back.

Happy Mardi Gras!!
