Embrace and celebrate winter with this Winter Inspired Grapevine Evergreen Wreath. With just a few simple and inexpensive supplies, it’s so easy to make!
It’s definitely winter where I live, not a sign of spring anywhere to be seen. After all, it is only the middle of January in Canada. So decorating for spring is not going to happen here for at least a few more months, but that’s fine with me, I love winter. So much so that I actually love to decorate for it. It’s the perfect time to layer on pretty fleece blankets, snuggle up in cozy throw pillows, light some candles, hang some fairy lights and enjoy the season as it is…not as one might wish it to be. And that’s exactly what I did…I got my living room all decorated for winter, then I decided to keep going and decorate my front door with a winter inspired wreath.
As I was putting away my Christmas decorations, the last decoration to go was this Evergreen Wreath I made. But instead of storing it away until next season, I decided to repurpose it for winter.
I wanted to keep this winter wreath very simple. Since I had most of the evergreen stems from my Christmas wreath already, I really only needed a few more things to make it feel wintery. So I made a quick trip to Michaels in search of wintery evergreen stems and ribbon. Then I got to work…in all it took me about 15 minutes to put together. It’s all about the stuffing of stems into the base, it’s SO easy. And I love how it turned out. This is one of those projects that really can’t go wrong, I promise.
I love how this wreath turned out! It’s simple, matches the winter season we’re in, and it looks so nice hanging on my front door. So now I’ll share all the details of how I made this wreath, so you can make one too! Have fun with it, and tailor it to your tastes…there’s no wrong way to make it!
Supplies for a Winter Grapevine Evergreen Wreath:
- 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 if you like. For this wreath I used faux evergreen springs that I found at Michaels. I bought about 6 large stems and cut them into pieces so I had more for stuffing.
- pine cones: about 8
- floral sprigs: I found some fuzzy white sprigs at Michaels…I’m not really sure what they are exactly but they looked wintery to me. I found them in the floral aisle
- ribbon: For one bow I used a cloth plaid ribbon that I already had, and for the second bow I used some large fuzzy knitting yarn
- green floral wire or twine for securing the evergreen sprigs
How to make a Winter Grapevine Evergreen Wreath:
This is a very simple wreath to make, don’t be intimidated by it at all! It’s all about stuffing the sprigs into the grapevine wreath base.
- Hang the grapevine wreath base on a wreath hanger on an inside door. I find this to be the easiest way to assemble a wreath because you can see what you are doing. It’s much easier than trying to make a wreath laying on a table.
- 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.
- Then I tucked in more faux evergreen stems 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 pine cones and the white fuzzy sprigs.
- Step back, have a look and see if both sides mirror each other, and add and adjust as needed.
- I then made one simple bow with a green and blue plaid ribbon, and made another bow with a piece of fuzzy large knitting yarn, and layered the two together, leaving long trailing ribbon from both of the bows.
I hope you make a wreath for your door…they’re such a nice way to embrace the season!
Have an inspired day!
