It seems like every year I make a new wreath for my front door for Halloween. I don’t know why something about Halloween just brings out my crafty side.  Usually, it starts because I decide the wreath I made for the previous year won’t hold up well outside, and I want to make one that’s okay to use on the outside of the front door.  Then I decide I don’t want to hang it outside and I’m back to the drawing board.

About the Mesh Eyeball Wreath

This year my contribution to my Halloween Wreath collection is this Eyeball wreath made out of geo mesh and ribbon.  There is a local craft store that always makes the cutest geo mesh wreaths but I always looked at them and thought they were way to hard to make. A few weeks ago I asked the lady working there if she could show me how to start making a wreath.  She gave me a quick explanation and I went “DUH”. These things are crazy easy to make, I don’t know why I haven’t tried it before.

Instructions

The work wreath frame has pre-attached pipe cleaners, you are basically going to twist them around the geo mesh in going around in a circle around the entire wreath.

You can leave as much or a little geo mesh in between the twist ties as you like.

How to Add Ribbon to the Wreath

I added black and orange ribbon to the outer circle of the wreath (using the same method that I used to attach the geo mesh).

I then cut 2 ribbons into 6″ strips and clipped the ends and tied them into the wreath using the twist ties.

The eyeball ornaments are attached in exactly the same way.

  1. Thank you so much for the tutorial. This is a great project for anyone who loves decorating for Halloween! I didn’t know it was called geo mesh and I sure didn’t know the proper way to use the wreathe: I have used one for the framework to tie lengths of Christmas ribbon to; it is awesome in shades of red, white, green, and gold.
