Christmas Grapevine Evergreen Wreath
With just a few simple and inexpensive supplies, it’s easy to make your own Christmas Grapevine Evergreen Wreath! This is a gorgeous holiday statement for your door!
Last week I made my annual trek to Jasper with my Mom for Christmas in November…my favourite event of the year. This magical event kicks off the Christmas season for me and gets me inspired to MAKE ALL THE THINGS for the holidays, both food and crafts. And this year, I left mega-inspired and ready to create. First up, a wreath. A gigantic, festive and gorgeous wreath.
My Favourite Christmas Wreath Ever!
I got home on Thursday night and by Friday I was in Michaels and my local hardware store gathering items for my wreath. By Saturday my wreath was made! Then I was greeted on Sunday morning with a blanket of new snow, so I had THE most perfect backdrop for my wreath photos to share with you. I’m so thrilled with the result.
I can’t even tell you how in love with this wreath I am. I love everything about it…the size, the greens, the ribbon, just everything.
It’s MUCH easier to make than you think!
Not to mention how easy it was to make…honestly I had it done in less than a 1/2 hour from start to finish. That’s the great thing about grapevine wreath bases, all you have to do is stuff sprigs into it. And it’s a very forgiving base…if you don’t like where something is, you can just remove it and stuff it again.
Play with it and stuff until you get the result you’re looking for.
Supplies for a Christmas Grapevine Evergreen Wreath:
Did I mention that this wreath cost me less than $20 to make?! True story. If you use your Michaels coupon for the wreath base and sprigs, it’s so inexpensive to make. And if you’re lucky enough to live near a forest, you can snip fresh sprigs from your yard or forest.
- 1 grapevine wreath base, in the size of your choice. I bought the biggest one I could find at Michaels…but still small enough that it will fit on my door.
- evergreen sprigs: fresh and/or faux evergreen sprigs (or both like I used). I used sprigs of fir, cedar and pine.
- I used 2 large faux evergreen sprigs
- ~ 10 fresh cedar sprigs
- ~ 8 fresh pine sprigs
- ~ 10 – 12 small fresh evergreen sprigs for filling gaps
- sprigs of berries: I bought 1 sprig of faux berries at Michaels and just snipped them off to stuff in
- pine cones, about 8
- ribbon, I used a cloth plaid ribbon that I found at HomeSense
- green floral wire or twine for securing the evergreen sprigs
How to make a Christmas Grapevine Evergreen Wreath:
This is one of the most simple wreaths you will make, don’t be intimidated by it at all! Honestly, this wreath is all about stuffing the sprigs into the grapevine wreath base. It will only take you less than a 1/2 hour to make!
- The first thing I do is hang the grapevine wreath base on a wreath hanger on the door. I find this to be the easiest way to assemble a wreath, because you can see what you are doing.
- I started with 2 large faux evergreen sprigs as the base, and stuffed each one into the bottom of the wreath base…one on each side for balance, with the stem towards the bottom of the wreath, and the evergreen fanning upward. I used a little bit of floral wire to secure them. (I used faux sprigs as the base because I want to be able to only switch out small fresh pieces over the season as they dry out, while the faux ones remain ‘fresh’ in appearance)
- Then I tucked in the cedar, pine and fresh evergreen sprigs at random, securing with wire as needed. Basically, what I do to one side of the wreath, I do to the other, for balance.
- Then I tucked in the berries and acorns. Securing with wire as needed.
- Step back, have a look and see if both sides mirror each other, and add and adjust as needed.
- I then made a simple bow with the plaid ribbon, leaving long trailing ribbon from the bow.
Isn’t it gorgeous?! I mean, you just can’t go wrong with evergreens and plaid ribbon. So so lovely.
