Y’all, we all know someone who needs this wreath in their life. Today, I’m showing you how to make a DIY Christmas grapevine wreath that reminds us not to get our tinsel in a tangle!
Y’all know that I love a good ole cheeky wreath sign and this one does not disappoint. In the video below, I show you how to use greenery and gorgeous ribbon to make a DIY Christmas grapevine wreath that will give you a giggle. Not only is this wreath festive, it’s also beautiful! I give you the step-by-step instructions so you can make your own fabulous holiday wreath. This one is perfect for gifting, selling, or keeping!
DIY Christmas Grapevine Wreath
Making this pretty wreath was fairly simple. All we needed was a fabulous bow, a snarky sign, and some Christmas greenery. Using my glue pot made it go even more quickly! If you have never tried a glue pot before, I highly recommend it. All you need is a small electric skillet (yep, I mean the kind you’d normally cook food in). Just place your glue sticks in the skillet and turn it on. The glue will melt easily for you. Then, all you have to do is dip the end of your greenery in and attach it to the wreath. I turn my skillet to high but if your glue is too runny, turn yours down. Runny glue will just slide right off and may cause burns. You want it the consistency of honey. We have a whole post about my favorite wreath making tools if you want to learn more!
My favorite thing to do for Christmas projects is to hit up all the shops right after Christmas and grab up the clearance items. I buy all the garlands, wreaths, and swags that I can get my hands on. Then, the next year I can cut the garlands and swags into individual stems. I use the stems to add texture to the evergreen wreaths and beauty to any of my holiday wreaths. Those stems would normally cost $2-$3 y’all and I get them for a steal. That advice is my early Christmas gift to you!
Christmas Terri Bow
- Take your first 2.5" ribbon, measure a 8" long tail then make two 6" loops in the EZ Bow Maker.
- Repeat with the first 1.5" ribbon.
- Next use the second 2.5" ribbon and do the same thing but make your loops slightly smaller.
- Repeat with the second 1.5" ribbon.
- Finally, remove the bow and use two pipe cleaners attached together at one end to make one long pipe cleaner to hold it together at the center. Tie it off.
DIY Christmas Grapevine Wreath
- Take your sign and remove any stickers. Cut four squares of fun foam and place at the corners of your sign. Place a pipe cleaner on each square and use staple gun to attach them at the center.
- Next, thread the pipe cleaners through the grapevine to attach the sign and twist the off.
- Attach the Terri bow to the bottom left corner of the sign. Be careful not to cover up the words. Dove tail the ribbon ends.
- Take your greenery sprays and separate them into sections. Use hot glue to attach them to the wreath. Start at the bow and work your way outward.
This Christmas grapevine project is perfect for making multiples. Multiples are important for this busy season when we need lots of product in stock. And, if you do them the right way they can be super easy! If you want to learn more about making multiples of your wreath designs I have a post for that too. Until next time, y’all, have fun with your glitter!
