Spiral Deco Mesh Wreath - Classroom Decor....






This is my first attempt at making a spiral deco-mesh wreath.  I wanted to try it out before spending the extra money to make Christmas wreaths for my home.  So I decided to make one for my classroom.  I honestly had no idea that it would be as HUGE as it is!  Each time I look at it I want to scream "It's so FLUFFY!!!!" Now I only hope I can keep myself from trying to embellish it some more...more ribbon?  Maybe a monogram? Possibly a science sign?  Or maybe I should just stop before the wreath grows out of control?

I love it! :) I have been wanting to make one but didn't know how. Did you happen to have something you followed on how to make it??

Tasha,
I found a web site that gave great directions and even had pictures.

Best of luck to you! Send me pictures of your finished wreath :)

I just finished my wreath and you are so right....It is fluffy!!! However, I know it will look great in my Kindergarten Classroom! I think I will try making a wreath for home using a smaller frame and the shorter mesh! So cute!

This is amazing. I would so love to see more pictures of your classroom. These two pieces - the wreath and the organization cabinet- are teasers. I am moving into a new classroom this summer and searching for ideas.

Lynn,
I'd love to see your wreath! Please let me know how the smaller wreath looks. I wouldn't mind making some smaller ones too!

A Full Classroom,
I do have some pictures of my classroom posted on my blog. At the beginning of this past school year I created a video tour using Animoto. It should be posted too. As this school year came to an end I took everything off the walls so now I'm going to start fresh. I'll post pics as I decorate over the summer break.

Saw your wreath on Pinterest. Love it! It caught my eye because my classroom colors are similar: hot pink, aqua, and black with zebra. So yours minus the green. I went to Hobby Lobby today and got all the mesh 50% off! I got white to replace your green. I can't wait to see how it turns out. Thanks for the inspiration. This will look awesome on my classroom door!

This is SOOOO Pretty I just came across it on Pinterest. I wish I could do something like that! If you dont mind me asking about how much did yours cost to make? And where did you get the materials?

I am changing classrooms this year (I also teach in NC, High School History) And i'm doing my room in our school colors. This would be very pretty!
