How to Make a Grapevine Wreath

With much of its twiggy form showing, this grapevine wreath is an earthy chic decoration for your front door at Christmas time. It's perfect if you want a natural, not-too-fussy look. Greenery trailing down the bottom and sides adds to the easy, carefree style.

Materials

  • 14-inch grapevine wreath
  • 3 faux mixed pine sprays
  • Hot-glue gun and glue sticks
  • 1-2/3 yards of 2-1/2-inch wide wire-edge burlap ribbon
  • Florist's wire
  • Faux red berries
  • Faux peppermint greenery
  • Faux willow branches

Instructions

1. Hot-glue the mixed pine sprays to the left side of the wreath.

2. Wire a bow made from the burlap ribbon to the left side of the wreath. Position the bow slightly above center. To make the bow, cut a 42-inch length of ribbon. Leaving a 14-inch tail, make a 4-inch loop, holding the ribbon between your thumb and index finger. Continue holding the ribbon, and make 5-inch loops in both directions. Continue holding the ribbon, and make 6-inch loops in both directions. Wrap wire around the bow center, not trimming the wire ends. For the remaining bow tails, wire the remaining piece of ribbon to the center. Trim the wire and ribbon ends.

3. Hot-glue or wire the red berries to the left side of the wreath, working upward, sideways, and downward from the bow. Hot-glue peppermint greenery to the left side of the wreath, working upward, downward, and sideways from the bow. Let the vines trail down and off the wreath.

4. Hot-glue willow branches to the left side of the wreath, positioning them so they flow naturally from the top and bottom of the wreath.
