Deco-Mesh School Spirit Wreath

deco mesh wreath college school spirit

College football season is upon us and it's time to show some school spirit! My grandson was not really sure why this wreath was suddenly hanging on their front door, but his daddy was thrilled.

You'll need the following supplies:

JOY Iron-On Embroidered Letters
Wire wreath form
Assorted rolls of ribbon (in your school colors)
Elmer's adhesive foam board
Chenille stems

There are so many instructions available on how to create a DecoMesh wreath, I won't go into detail here, but to make this wreath I first wove the deco mesh back and forth thru the two, center wire rings then added wired burlap bows between the loops and secured each one with a chenille stem.  I cut 6" to 8" strips of the patterned ribbon, scrunched and wrapped with a chenille stem at the center, then added those throughout the wreath. Finally I added some white burlap strips just because I had some on hand.

To add the TCU varsity letters to the center, I cut a strip of adhesive foam board. Measure your wreath to determine length and measure the ribbon to determine the width. With the adhesive side facing the front, insert the ends under the outer and inner wire rings at the back.


Remove the cover to expose the adhesive then cover with a strip of ribbon. Remove the backing from your letters then adhere to the center as shown.  Voilà, you are now ready to get your spirit on!

There are so many other things you can make to decorate not just your home, but a school dorm room, too! This pillow form was covered in Oly*Fun fabric, which is perfect for outdoors, then I decorated it with a team cheer.  You can also create banners or pennants using felt shapes in your school colors.

You can find JOY Iron-On letters and numbers and all your favorite crafting supplies at your local Hobby Lobby and  Michaels craft stores!
