Tools for making your wreath
How to decorate a grapevine wreath for Christmas
Lay your wreath out and determine what side will be your top. This is where you will create a wired loop on the back for hanging. It’s best to do this prior to starting your wreath, if you’ll need one. Or you can use a wreath door hanger for hanging your wreath.
Strip off loose dried leaves.
Next you will take the gold garland, and attach it to your grapevine wreath. Tuck under any ends, adjust an ensure your look prior to gluing down.
Mark where you will put your wired ribbon (visually or with a temporary ribbon bow), make the bow and attach it in place later with hot glue. Be sure to glue under edges to finish your ribbon ends. You can either use hot glue, with tweezers for this or fabric glue.
- Here’s a great video tutorial for how to make wired bows with wired ribbons. Or you can purchase premade bow, or get a bow maker to help you make them.
Start to add your floral pics, pine sprays with red berries, mini Christmas trees, and wired ribbon balancing them visually. Hot glue in place when your happy with the look. When glue is dry use your fingers to pull off any glue strands. They look like mini spider webs.
Step back, and look at your wreath. Fill in any holes with more fillers, pine cones, or ribbon, to balance out your wreath. Make it as full, and festive as you like.
