These mesh wreaths seem to be the "in" thing at all of the craft shows.  I made mine for $6 by doing a little thrifty shopping at the Goodwill.  Found the 21" wide ribbon in 3 sections and bought a few ornaments.  Took an old wreath and stripped it and added 9" pieces of ribbon for the ties.  Gathered up 7" sections and tied and repeated until complete.

These wreath forms can be bought complete with ties
