It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in the warehouse! Today I’m showing you how to make a grapevine Christmas pine wreath that is beautifully elegant!
We are in full swing Christmas mode now y’all. There is Christmas ribbon and festive greenery allll over the place! This is the season that I look forward to every year. There are so many fun designs that I get to do and everyone is geeked to craft and to shop. In the video below I show you how to make a grapevine Christmas pine wreath that is quick to do and beautiful to behold!
Grapevine Christmas Pine Wreath
There are so many reasons to love a grapevine wreath base y’all. They work for all seasons and all decor styles. They make a great base for signs, bows, greenery, you name it. And the best part is that they are perfect for creating a quick and simple design.
Since you aren’t using mesh and ribbons to make your base, these projects are fast and also less expensive to make. We have grapevine tutorials for all seasons but we also have a post on the basics of how to decorate a grapevine base. Check it out for all the tips and tricks!
In the video below, I am showing you how to transform a grapevine base with a pretty bow and some fabulous greenery. When you are working with grapevine it’s a good idea to find greenery stems that already look completed. These are a little more pricey but you can always snag them at the end of the season when they are on clearance, y’all!
Any type of greenery will work well for this project but, since it is a Christmas wreath, I’m sticking close to the pine family. I’m loving some sparkly pines for this project too! I show you how to add your greens in the video below but if you want more advice on the secrets of adding greenery to your wreaths, we have a post for that too!
Simple Christmas Bow
- Start with your 4" ribbon and measure an 8" tail. Pinch and twist it and then make a 6" loop. Trim the ribbon from the spool.
- Next, repeat this process with the 2.5" ribbon then the 1.5" ribbon.
- Now repeat with the same ribbons in the same order but make your loops 5.5" this time.
- Take two pipe cleaners and twist the together at the ends to make one long one. Remove your bow from the bow maker and use the pipe cleaner to secure the center of your bow. Twist off the pipe cleaners at the back and you're all set!
Grapevine Christmas Pine Wreath
- Start by adding your bow to your grapevine base. Use the pipe cleaners on the bow to secure it to the base.
- Next separate your greenery into smaller pieces. Start from your bow and work your way out building from there. Use the glue gun to secure your greenery in place. Keep adding greenery until your wreath is as full as you want it.
- Finally, fluff out your bow and dovetail the ends.
And that’s it y’all! This is a quick project that is also tons of fun to do. The results are gorgeous and I have more good news. These grapevine wreaths are perfect for selling! They are easy to do but still sell so well at craft shows and on Etsy. What a fun way to boost your holiday sales this year! Have fun crafting friends!
