Meet Coach Jordan!
Hi everyone- Coach Jordan here. I was walking through Hobby Lobby the other day and saw some gorgeous lavender stems and loved how wispy and airy the stems were. I wanted to use them to make a lavender wreath design.
But, it had to be simple. I didn’t want anything complicated or time-consuming.
This design turned out even better than I envisioned. I love that you can use it through most of the year if you want to, or you could even change out the elements and reuse the grapevine base for a different design.

Here’s what you’ll need to make this wispy floral lavender wreath.
- 15” grapevine base
- 6 stems of lavender greenery stems
- Zip ties
- Pipe cleaners
- (1) 4” burlap ribbon (any design that you want)
- Bolt cutters
How To Make A Lavender Wreath On A Grapevine Base
Follow this wreath tutorial to make a lavender wreath of your own so you can sell it or hang it on your own front door!
Let’s prepare our greenery.
Grab your greenery sprays and pull them apart to give them more depth and make them look more realistic. Layer 3 of the lavender stems on top of each other and secure the bunch together with a zip tie.
Move down the lavender stems about 2 inches from the zip tie and add another zip tie. Then, trim the stems off around 2 inches below the lowest zip tie.
Repeat the process for your other 3 lavender stems so you have 2 bunches of lavender. Then, take your two bunches and overlap the ends so the bunches face away from each other.
Take another zip tie and secure the two bunches together.
Prepare your grapevine base by inspecting it to see if any leaves or stems stick out too far. If there are, just cut them off.
Now let’s add our lavender to the wreath base!
Place your bundled lavender stems on your wreath base and adjust the stems by bending the bunches to follow the curve of the wreath base.
Zip tie the bunches to the wreath base – there’s no need for glue!
Begin making your bow.
Take your ribbon and measure about a 13” tail. Pinch the ribbon together in the middle.
Next, measure 11” and fold in the middle to create your first 5.5” loop. Pinch, twist (so you always see the pretty side of the ribbon), and repeat to make a loop the same size on the other side.
Now make 2 more loops at 13” so that you get 6.5” loops, and make 2 slightly larger final loops at 7.5.” Measure your second 13” tail and cut your ribbon.
Note: You’ll have 6 loops total, with each layer of loops being slightly larger than the previous layer.
Fluff out your loops and position them so they make a nice, full bow.
Use a zip tie through the middle of the bow to secure it and trim any excess off the back. Then, use a pipe cleaner to attach the bow to your grapevine wreath where the two bunches of lavender meet in the middle.
Tip: If you have trouble pushing the pipe cleaner through your grapevine, you can try this trick. Push the pipe cleaners through the wreath base as far as you can. Grab your needlenose pliers and use them to grab the pipe cleaner from the back to pull them through so that the pipe cleaner comes out in the back of the wreath base.
Finish the wreath by fluffing out your lavender and bow. Dovetail the ribbon tails or reposition your bow loops the way you want them to look.
