How To Make A Christmas Grapevine Wreath With Mrs. Claus Wreath Decor
Follow this wreath tutorial to use a combination of evergreen wreath base and holiday-themed picks to create a beautiful festive wreath that you may not even realize is a grapevine wreath!
We’re going to start by stacking the evergreen base on top of the grapevine base. If your evergreen base is round, take a moment to squeeze it towards the middle on opposite sides to create an oval shape.
Use zip ties to secure the two bases together. Spread out the evergreen branches a little to fluff them.
Using wires or zip ties, attach Mrs. Claus’s head to the top left side of the wreath. Then attach her legs down at the bottom of the wreath base.
Take your ornament ball strip and use it to bridge the open space in the center of the wreath. Attach one end to each side of the wreath base with zip ties.
Let’s attach the wrapped gift. The best way to attach it is to insert bamboo skewers through the wreath base and into the back of the gift.
Now it’s time to fill in some of the gaps with picks and sprays. Take your curly picks and insert them into the wreath base just below the ball ornaments.
Then, take your red sprays and insert them around the curly picks and along the inside edges on the sides of the wreath base to add texture and fill in gaps.
Stack your 2.5” ribbon on top of your 4” ribbon and create a tail about 6 inches long. Pinch the stacked ribbons and attach them with pipe cleaners to the outside of the wreath next to Mrs. Claus’s face.
Let the tail point toward the top of the wreath as you loosely bring down the rest of the ribbon toward the bottom to create a pouf with the ribbon. Attach it to the frame at the bottom of the design with pipe cleaners, leaving a 6” tail.
Repeat the process with the ribbon on the other side of the wreath. Dovetail all the ends.
Grab some bamboo skewers and cut them in half to create smaller skewers. Insert one cut skewer into a snowflake and add it to your wreath design to fill in a gap. Repeat three more times.
Glue any pieces that need it into place. Fluff out your design, and you’re done!
Isn’t this wreath so cute? I love how classic yet whimsical this Mrs. Claus wreath design is!
Make This Mrs. Claus Wreath Part Of Your Christmas Grapevine Wreath Inventory!
What did you think of Coach Fancy’s technique of stacking an evergreen base onto a grapevine base? It really makes it easier to secure picks and sprays without getting caught in the grapevine base, right?
Remember, feel free to adjust this design to personalize it and make it uniquely your own. You could change the color scheme from red, green, and white to pink, blue, and silver. Or, you could use a Mrs. Claus sign and put the picks, sprays, and other elements around it (although I LOVE the fabric Mrs. Claus element).
