Nick always makes any kit unique by adding a few things from his craft stash. For the strawberry flip-flip wreath he added a few curls of green and red mesh along with some green striped ribbon. Trendy Tree doesn’t have the exact ribbon that Nick used, but here are a few similar choices.
RX9135H5 1.5″ Apple Green White Vertical Stripe Ribbon
RX9135F5 1.5″ Lime Green White Vertical Stripe Ribbon
RX9148WW 1.5″ Lime Green White Wide Stripe Ribbon
RX9141H5 1.5″ Apple Green White Horizontal Stripe Ribbon (same style Nick used, just lime green)
Spring & Summer Wreath
The strawberry flip-flop wreath is perfect to hang on your door for spring and summer. It’s so bright and cheery. And who doesn’t love strawberries!
The flip-flop sign is available in other styles too. I counted ten different styles! They make a cute door hanger too.
Not a Crafter?
If you would like a beautiful wreath, but don’t think you’re up to the task of putting one together, you can visit Nick’s Etsy Shop: 39 County Home. He has several seasonal styles that are ready to ship.
And remember, you can always pick out different signs, ribbons, or mesh and create a wreath with a similar look by following Nick’s easy instructions. Just stick to similar products in size. For instance, 10″ mesh. You wouldn’t want to try to make this wreath with 21″ mesh.
The ruffle or curl technique is one of the simplest ways to make a Deco mesh wreath. It will always come out nice and even.
If you don’t think you can master a bow….by the time you put ribbon strips and the sign on this wreath….no one will notice you didn’t add a bow!
And if adding picks and sprays terrify you…..start out making a wreath with just mesh and ribbon. You can always add on extras later as you get more comfortable with wreath making.
