How adorable is this Pilgrim Turkey Wreath?! It is made with a mix of poly jute mesh, and chocolate/copper and gold mesh on a standard sized frame, with a black pilgrim hat, cute striped, bendable turkey legs that can be posed, and a fern bush as his tail. Fun Fall or Thanksgiving Wreath! This wreath measures about 22" across and is Ready to Ship! More can be made upon request.
15" Pencil Work Wreath Form: Burlap or Chocolate; 10" Poly Jute Mesh: Natural; 10" Deco Poly Mesh: Metallic Chocolate/Copper Foil; 10'' Deco Poly Mesh: Two Tone Burgundy/Gold (one roll of each mesh is more than enough for one wreath); Pilgrim Turkey Wreath Decor Kit; 19" Fern Grass Bush
1. We cut the mesh into 10" squares, "scrunched" them down the middle, and tied 3 squares into each set of ties on the outer ring of the wreath. We did the same with 2 squares of the chocolate/copper mesh and one of the burgundy/gold on the center ring. (Feel free to experiment and do your own thing with mesh or burlap for the actual wreath portion!)
2. Attach legs to the bottom of the wreath form using the wires on the legs.
3. Place the hat and fern bush toward the top, laying them both in place before attaching them. Attach hat.
4. We then pulled off the tape that keeps all stems of the fern bush together to make it easier to wrap each wired stem onto the frame, still keeping it in a fan shape to resemble the feathered tails of a turkey. (A grass bush coming soon, or colorful fall leaves like either of our 20" Satin Maple Bushes could also be used as the tail.)
Experiment and make it your own design! Add a Happy Fall ribbon or sign!
