Pancake wreaths get their name, because compared to other wreaths, they are “as flat as a pancake.” These wreaths are perfect for people who live in climates that require storm doors to keep out the elements. These flat creations fit right in between the storm door and the main door.
Always start from the middle wreath ring. Wrap your pipe cleaner around two rings (either the middle and top or the middle and bottom). Twist it off. You now have 5 inches of excess pipe cleaner to use to measure where to place the next wire.
Start wiring your branches together and when you get a long-ish garland (about three branches) loop it around to make a circle (or in my case a triangle and an oval.) Tie on a ribbon from your stash. That’s it. You just made a wreath for free.
Cut your 10″ mesh into 18 inch strips. For a 15-24″ Premade Work Form, you’ll need 18 pieces of the mesh.
If you’re using 10 yard rolls, 2-3 rolls is plenty for a 12-14″ wreath. If you want more than that, go for it to achieve a much fuller wreath!
