Put on your Christmas music and gather your crafts supplies. It's holiday wreath-making time! And this red berry rendition doesn't require expert DIY skills. With a little cutting and pasting, you can outfit a basic grapevine wreath with a pretty seasonal bow and red artificial berries. Really, that’s it! See how we did it below, and get inspired to make your own DIY red berry wreath. After you master this holiday craft, who knows what you can do!
Using floral wire, attach the bow to the grapevine wreath. Feel free to make your own bow, or use one from your local crafts store. Wrap the wire around several times to make the bow sturdy enough to hold up during winter weather. Snip and tie off the wire on the back side of the grapevine wreath to keep it hidden. You can also trim the bow tails if they look too long for your wreath.
Begin filling in the wreath with stems of faux red berries or pip berries. Dab a small amount of hot glue onto the end of each stem and carefully slide into the grapevine wreath. Attach the berries with the stems pointing toward the bow on each side. We added more berries to one side for an asymmetrical look, but you could also cover the entire winter wreath in red berries.
You may notice small gaps in your red berry wreath not quite large enough to fit an entire stem of berries. Instead, use heavy-duty scissors to snip the berries into smaller, more manageable pieces and hot-glue into place. You can use these to make your red berry wreath more full and festive.
