Spring is officially here, y’all! Today I’m showing you how to make a beautiful freesia grapevine wreath. With the birds chirping and the bees starting to buzz it’s the perfect time to work with delicate flowers like freesia!
Y’all I love using beautiful florals in my spring wreaths. The awesome thing about this design, though, is that it is perfect for spring and every day use! That means that this freesia grapevine wreath will be the perfect fit for two different groups of people. Gotta love having a wreath like that in your shop! In the video below I show you how to assemble this fabulous design and give you tips and tricks for adding greenery to your wreaths. If you want to learn more about the secret to adding greenery to your decor, we have a post for that too!
Freesia Grapevine Wreath
Y’all, wreaths with a natural look are a staple in wreath design. You know that mesh and ribbons are my favorite to play with but it is important for me to create both kinds of designs. This freesia wreath design is a great option for natural decor. Once you have the basics down, it is easy to duplicate. And, it only uses 15′ of ribbon, one freesia, and one greenery spray!
When you watch the video you will see exactly how to take those few simple supplies and turn them into a full and vibrant wreath that looks like it cost top dollar to make. If you love the look of the greens in this wreath but aren’t in love with the flowers you can check out our evergreen and burlap grapevine wreath which uses gorgeous greens and beautiful ribbon but no florals. Whatever y’all need, we’ve got you covered!
The Great Grapevine Debate
Y’all, whenever I do a grapevine tutorial I feel like this question comes up. Should you or should you not clean your grapevines? The answer is similar to the soda/pop debate. You’re either strongly on one side or the other but the side you’re on really doesn’t matter; it’s a tasty beverage whatever you decide to call it. Same with grapevines; whether you clean them or not, you’re still going to end up with a beautiful wreath. I’m “team no clean” but Coach Fancy and Coach Mel are “team clean” so we show you how to make wreaths using both methods. The bottom line: you do you!
Simple One Ribbon Bow
- Start by measuring a 7" tail. Twist the ribbon and add it to the bow maker. Then make a 6" loop, twist again and add that to the bow maker. Repeat with a second loop on the opposite side. Pull both loops towards the top. Make two more loops just like this and pull them towards the bottom.
- Next, make two more loops that are slightly smaller than the last ones. Make one more loop for the center and then trim another 7" tail.
- Remove your bow from the bow maker and grab a pipe cleaner. Use the pipe cleaner to secure the center of the bow, twisting it off at the back.
Freesia Grapevine Wreath
- Start by using the pipe cleaner on your bow to attach it to the top left side of the grapevine wreath.
- Next, use the wire cutters to trim your freesia and greenery stems into smaller sections.
- Count to see how many freesia stems you have so you can decide how many to put on each side of your bow. Then use hot glue to attach them to either side of the bow making sure the flowers are lifting up and off the grapevine so it doesn't lay flat.
- Next, start working in the greenery using the hot glue to secure it in place. Be sure to add a little bit of greenery and one flower to the center of the bow.
- Then trim three 14" ribbon tails and trim the ends at an angle. Use three of the trimmed wired stem ends to wrap the center of the tail. Then use hot glue to add the stem of your tails around the bow and at the bottom of the wreath to fill it out.
I hope y’all love this design and are excited to try it out! Remember that you don’t have to make this using exactly the same supplies that I do. Dig through your storage bins or cruise the floral aisle of your favorite craft store and grab whatever inspires you. Just have fun and let your creativity flow!
