Valentine Mesh Wreath Shaped Like a Heart

Learn how to make a valentine mesh wreath shaped like a heart! This deco mesh valentine wreath is perfect holiday decor for beginners.

Skills Required: None. You’ll be cutting mesh, rolling it, and attaching it to a wire form with pipe cleaners. It’s easy to put this Valentine’s Day wreath together because the colors are random.

Valentine Mesh Wreath

I made a lot of mesh wreaths this past holiday season. You could say it was a bit of a “mesh-splosion” around my house. After I made several wreaths for the holidays, I decided I wasn’t out of wreath making mode.

And to be honest? My Valentine’s Day wreath making attempts have been kind of lame in the past. Or let’s just say, I could’ve done more.

There was the vintage style Valentine’s Day wreath I made, and I love that wreath. But you can see from the tutorial, it didn’t take a lot of effort on my part.

So I decided it was time to show you how to make a deco mesh valentine wreath from scratch!

Deco Mesh Valentine Wreath

Don’t get me wrong, this wreath is very easy! Yes, I put a little more effort in than prior endeavors, but it’s still perfect for beginners. It does take some time, but put on a movie. You’ll see how relaxing it is.

You’re going to make this project in three easy steps. You’re going to cut the mesh, then cut the pipe cleaners. Then you’re going to attach the mesh to the wire form. That’s it!

Mesh to Use

A few notes because mesh comes in different widths: this uses 6″ deco mesh. Depending on the craft store, you might only find 10″ rolls or wider.

If needed, you can cut down the mesh horizontally as well as vertically. The wreath does look a little bit more frilly.

I also want to note that it didn’t take all five of the rolls of mesh to make this valentine wreath. There was a little bit left over from each of the colors.

Where to Get a Form

You don’t have to use a heart wreath form, but they are pretty cute in my opinion! You can get them at the dollar store if you’re lucky. They get sold out pretty quickly though.

You can use a round wire wreath form the dollar store if you want to keep the project inexpensive and you don’t care about the heart. OR you can get a wire wreath form on Amazon here.

Are you ready to make this mesh valentine wreath? Here’s how it’s done below!

Gather These Supplies

  • Wire heart wreath form – 12″
  • 6” X 30 ft rolls of decorative mesh
    • Pink – 1
    • Red – 2
    • White – 2
  • Chenille pipe cleaners, 12″ – 1 package
  • Heavy duty scissors or wire cutters
  • Ruler
  • Cutting mat
  • Rotary cutter (scissors work too, but this makes it easier)

Cut the Mesh

You’re going to start your project by cutting tubes of mesh approximately 10″ in length. The width of the mesh should be around 6″, and so you’ll be working with a bunch of 10″ x 6″ pieces you’re going to roll into tubes.

Cutting pink deco mesh with a rotary cutter

Cut several pieces of all three colors at once. I found it easiest to use a rotary cutter (with a ruler if you want to make sure the line is super straight). However, you can definitely use scissors. The rotary just sped up the process.

I usually start with about 15 tubes of each color because I know I’m going to need at least that many. Then I add as needed.

Cut the Pipe Cleaners

Grab the package of pipe cleaners and cut each one into four pieces. Honestly, you can use any color pipe cleaners – you won’t see them. I usually try to coordinate white one of the colors in my wreath or use white.

You don’t need to cut every single pipe cleaner in the package; just cut enough to get started.

Once you’ve got little stockpiles of mesh pieces as well as pipe cleaner pieces, grab your heart wreath form because you are ready to begin assembling your valentine mesh wreath.

Attach the Mesh to the Wreath Form

The process of attaching the mesh is really easy. You’ll start with a mesh piece and roll it into a tube. It doesn’t have to be really tight.

Rolling a piece of deco mesh into a tube

Hold the tube in one of your hands and pinch and twist between your fingers.

Wrap this tube around any spot on the heart wreath form. I recommend starting somewhere toward the bottom on one side of the heart.

Hands wrapping a piece of mesh around the wire wreath form

Bring the ends of the mesh around to touch each other, and then wrap a pipe cleaner piece around and twist.

You are going to repeat this above process over and over and over again until the wreath form is full. And that’s how it’s done!

Once you select one color, keep working through the other colors and randomly placing the mesh tubes so the colors are spread out. This is what your wreath will start to look like.

And for reference, here’s how it looks from the back.

Continue working your way around the wreath form, adding tubes of mesh and securing them with pipe cleaners.

You may find around the bend toward the top of the heart that you want to use less mesh so that the heart shape is retained. See how it goes!

Adding the final mesh roll to the wreath form

Finish the wreath by wrapping all the way around, and your deco mesh valentine wreath is complete.

  2. Take approximately ten pipe cleaners and cut them into four pieces each. You will cut additional pieces as needed.
  3. Take one of the lengths of mesh and roll into a tube (not too tight). Bend around a wire on the heart wreath form and secure by twisting a pipe cleaner toward the wire.
  4. Repeat this process with the rest of your mesh pieces, alternating colors to make it random.

On the valentines heart wreath do you put the mesh on all wires, or do you do the second and 4th or what wire do you start on.

Hi Martha! You will end up putting mesh on all wires. Take a peek at this picture: You can start on any wire - just make sure to stagger the mesh you add so the wreath is full and fluffy. You'll see as it comes together. And if you see blank spots when you're done, simply go back and add more mesh there.
