Thin Blue Line Deco Mesh Wreath

It’s craft time here on the blog!  And it’s another deco mesh wreath.  Because I am obsessed with making them.  This wreath was made for one of my friends at work who asked that I make her a Thin Blue Line deco mesh wreath.  Read on to see how I put this wreath together!

First off, what is the meaning behind the thin blue line emblem?  The simple-looking emblem has multiple meanings, all arising from the same concept: police officers stand as a thin line that protects society from good and evil, chaos and order.  For some civilians, the thin blue line emblem simply connotes a show of support for police, acknowledging the role they play in society. To others, it represents the solidarity and brotherhood that police officers share as fellow professionals.

If you would like step by step directions on how to make a deco mesh wreath, including pictures, click HERE.  Today’s post is to be used as design inspiration if you already know how to make a deco mesh wreath.  If you have never made a deco mesh wreath before, then click on the link above!

MATERIALS: (all which were purchased at Hobby Lobby):

  • 16-inch work wreath
  • 1 roll 10-inch x 30-feet deco mesh ribbon in blue
  • 1 roll 10-inch x 30 feet black deco mesh ribbon
  • 1 roll 5.5-inch x 30-feet black and silver deco mesh ribbon
  • Optional black and blue decorations and thin blue line sign

First, you will loop the black deco mesh, using the entire roll:

Next, loop in the blue deco mesh:

Add the third layer of deco mesh, looping in the black and silver deco mesh:

I felt like the wreath needed a little more pizazz, so I added some black and blue glitter ornaments that I had in my craft room.  I just removed the metal ornament portion, so they looked just like balls instead of Christmas ornaments:

Add a Thin Blue Line sign in the middle, and you’re done!

And now a picture of James and I at work!  James is a firefighter in the same city I am a police officer in, so every now and again we go on the same calls together.  I couldn’t pass up the rare chance to have a picture taken of us together!

I hope you enjoyed the break from the recipes!  Thanks for letting me share this craft project with you.  And don’t worry…I’ll be back with a decadent recipe for you in a couple days!!

XOXO,

Kelly
