Wreaths aren’t just for winter holidays or springtime events. A handmade, seasonal wreath can add whimsy and charm to any front door or home all year long. Today, Greta is sharing her crafting know-how to make a 15-minute wreath from grapevines and craft supplies.
If you don’t have a bunch of grapevines handy, thin willow branches or other vines that are pliable also work as a substitute. The key is to find vines or branches that bend, are easy to work with and shape into a wreath.
- 10-20 freshly cut grapevines
- Craft flowers and accessories (including seasonal decorations)
- Floral wire
Start by bending one, longer grapevine into a circle. Secure it in place by wrapping it around itself. Don’t worry about making it perfect. The asymmetrical look is part of the charm of these wreaths.
Add a second, third, and fourth grapevine. Depending on how large or thick you want your wreath, add more grapevines. Greta’s wreath (pictured) uses 20 grapevines.
Once you’re happy with your wreath, it’s time to add your decorations. Greta is adding some imitation willows and flowers.
Decoration can be added to the bottom, sides, or all around the wreath. It’s all up to you and your preferences. Use craft or floral wire to secure your additions in place.
To add a ribbon to the bottom area, first fold the ribbon over and cut a triangle into it. Then cut the ribbon in half and tie it into a bow. Add it to the wreath with your wire.
In the end, your wreath should be a welcome addition to your front door.
