Alright y’all who’s ready for a wreath project that is perfect for everyday decor? Today I’m showing you how to make a faith grapevine wreath that is beautiful and can be used year round!
The faith grapevine wreath that I’m showing you today is all black, white, and gray. Monochromatic designs are always popular and for good reason. Not only are they super pretty, they go with just about any decor styles and colors. That makes them perfect for gifting and selling. You’ll definitely want to add some to your product line up and this design will help you get started!
DIY Faith Grapevine Wreath
Ok y’all, someone hold my ribbon while I preach a bit. The sign I used for this project is one we had designed specifically for Deco Exchange. The sign reads, “Faith is like wi-fi, it’s invisible but it has the power to connect you to whatever you need.” I firmly believe that this is true y’all! Many of us have a firm faith when it comes to our spiritual beliefs and that is a beautiful thing. Where a lot of us makers fall short, however, is faith in ourselves. Faith in our abilities and goals is so important in this biz and I’m here to tell you that you can do this! Whatever your “this” is!
If you’ve been with us for awhile you’ve heard me talk about impostor syndrome and how paralyzing it can be. Basically this means that the little voices in our heads can sometimes get the better of us and hold us back. I try and combat this (and help others do the same) in a few different ways. If you want to learn more about how to battle impostor syndrome we have a post for that too. I want you to be confident and believe in yourself so be sure to check it out!
Ok, I’ll take my ribbon back now. I also want to give you a quick tip about greenery. If you are new to wreath making or struggle with greenery, this one is for you! What you want to do is get yourself some ficus stems. I know that sounds strange but hear me out! Ficus always comes in a group of three perfectly measured pieces that are perfect for adding in the triangle pattern. Adding these first will give you the perfect base for the rest of your greenery! If you want more advice like this check out our post on the secrets of adding greenery!
- Grab your EZ Bow Maker and your first 2.5" ribbon. Measure a 12" tail and add the ribbon to the bow maker. Next, make a 6" loop and trim your ribbon from the spool.
- Repeat this process with the second 2.5" then 1.5" ribbons.
- Now repeat with all three ribbons but make the loops smaller this time.
- Take two pipe cleaners and twist the ends together to make one long pipe cleaner. Remove your bow from the bow maker and use the long pipe cleaner to secure the center of the bow twisting it off at the back.
Faith Grapevine Wreath
- Start by attaching pipe cleaners to each corner of your sign using the staple gun. Next add hot glue to secure them in place.
- Once the glue has dried use the pipe cleaners to attach the sign to the grapevine wreath.
- Next, attach your bow to the bottom left of the sign. Dove tail the ribbon ends of the bow.
- Use the wire cutters to trim the greenery into smaller stems. Start with the ficus and use hot glue to attach it to the wreath base. Start at the bow and work your way outward in a triangle pattern.
- Trim, fluff, and attach your other greenery working the pieces between the stems you have already attached. You want this to have a 3D look so add in front and behind to build your wreath up.
And that’s it y’all! This is a pretty quick and simple wreath project for you. And, like I said, it is the perfect addition to your product line up because it is so versatile and universal. I’m telling y’all, these designs never seem to dip in popularity. Find one you like and keep it stocked and you’ll have a consistent winner!
