How To Make A Christmas Grapevine Wreath
Follow this step-by-step guide to put your holiday wreath together so you can get it ready to display for the season. Note: I’m using a slightly different technique for this bow that you won’t want to miss!
Prepare your grapevine base by inspecting it to see if there are any leaves or stems that stick out too far. If there are, just cut them off.
Prepare your sign by using DAB glue to glue mounting squares in the corners on the back of the sign. Insert pipe cleaners into the mounting squares.
Use mini clamps to clamp the mounting squares in place so they can dry as you continue to prepare your wreath.
Take your EZ Bow Maker and your 4” ribbon and start making your bow. Start by making 12” tails on the right side with one 6.5” loop to the left side.
Then, make a corresponding loop and tails (the same size) with your first 2.5” ribbon.
Grab your next 2.5” ribbon and make 12” tails to the right with one 6” loop to the left side. Then make a similar loop and tails for the other side with your 3rd 2.5” ribbon.
At this point, you’ll have 4 different ribbons on your EZ Bow Maker, but essentially only 2 traditional layers, if that makes sense.
We’ll repeat this technique one more time with our (2) 1.5” ribbons. Make your 12” tails and one 5.5” loop with the first 1.5” ribbon. Do it one more time with your second 1.5” ribbon.
Take your final ribbon and make one 5” loop with 12” tails as your center loop.
Wrap a pipe cleaner around the middle of your bow. Twist it tightly to secure the bow.
Remove the clamps from your sign and attach the sign to the top of your wreath form. Next, attach your bow to the bottom portion of your wreath base.
TIP: If you have trouble pushing the pipe cleaner through your grapevine, take your needle nose pliers and use them to push the pipe cleaner through the wreath. Then, use them to grab the pipe cleaner on the other side and pull it through so that the pipe cleaner comes out the back.
Use your bolt cutters to cut your pine greenery apart to make it slightly smaller. Then, begin adding your greenery into the wreath frame in a triangle pattern around the bow.
Use a dab of hot glue to each stem after you stick it in the grapevine so that it stays in place after it dries.
Now that we’ve built out our base, it’s time to add some color and texture. Take your frosted pine greenery, cut it apart, and insert a sprig around your bow in a triangle pattern.
Fluff out your bow and dovetail the ends.
Complete the design by inserting a couple of glittery red leaf picks and eucalyptus sprigs into your wreath in a triangle pattern around your bow.
