Colorful Cow Wreath Tutorial

This wreath design pops with colors that’ll work for both Spring and Summer. You can always swap the supplies out to florals, greenery, and ribbons that fits your style.

The waterfall style design gives the overall look texture, depth, and movement. You could really take this design recipe and turn it into a wreath for any season.


  • 1 wire cutter or stem cutter
  • 1 scissors
  • 1 hot glue gun or glue pot


  • 4 cable tie mounts
  • 1 cow wreath sign
  • 1 1.5″ wired ribbon double sided
  • 1 4″ wired ribbon double sided
  • 4 pipe cleaners
  • zip ties
  • 1 14″ round grapevine
  • 1 hanging ivy
  • 1 leaves spray
  • 1 bush with large flower head
  • 1 blue filler flowers
  • 1 multi-colored foam leaf spray


Why is fluffing out greenery sprays so important?

By opening up each stem and element you bring them to life. Animate your stems and take that design up a notch by doing these little steps that really truly make all the difference. I usually go in I’ll face all my leaves the same direction and just makes a really big polished difference.

Where did the colorful cow wreath sign come from?

The wreath sign was part of DecoExchange’s March Deluxe Wreath Subscription box. For more information check out Wreath Supply Box.

How to Make a Colorful Cow Wreath

Love color? This colorful cow wreath is perfect wreath tutorial for Spring or Summer.




Attach Sign

  • Clean your grapevine to protect your front door or your customer's door.
  • Determine where you want to place your wreath sign.
  • Tuck the corners into the grapevine to secure.
  • Add cable tie mounts to the backside of the sign, add extra adhesive if needed.
  • Fish pipe cleaners through the mounts and secure to grapevine.

Create Bow

  • Using your 4" double sided wired ribbon, make a long tail and form a loop from back to front.
  • Pinch and twist so the same side of the ribbon is showing.
  • Create another loop from back to front, making sure the loops are the same size.
  • Now add in the 1.5" double sided wired ribbon.
  • Start with a tail. Create a loop from back to front.
  • Pinch and twist. Create another loop to mirror it.
  • Next, create 1 more loop on each side leaving the opposite side of the ribbon showing.
  • Secure with a zip tie.
  • Trim all tails.
  • Fluff out tails and loops.
  • Secure the bow to the top of the grapevine with a zip tie.
  • Adjust bow as needed.
  • Let the tails cascade and frame the sign. You can direct the flow of the tails using zip ties.

Add Greenery and Florals

  • Spread open every single little curly swirly twig and branch to show off the colors and textures.
  • Weave your greenery into the direction of the grapevine.
  • Incorporate your greenery stems into the tails.
  • Trim ivy so you have more control over the design.
  • Bend the stems to create a waterfall effect coming out of the bottom of the grapevine.
  • Start hot gluing the stems in place.
  • Trim your colorful foam leaf stems and distribute evenly underneath the bow and at the bottom incorporating into the ivy waterfall.
  • Trim your large flower head and attach 1 to the center of the bow and the other to the center of that waterfall design at the bottom.
  • Hot glue to secure.
  • Add in your blue filler flowers below the bottom flower head.
  • Fill extra buds into your design as you see fit.
