Tips on Creating a Simple Fall Grapevine Wreath
Here are a few quick tips on keeping your design simple and quick, without compromising the “wow” factor.
- Use only a few different picks and sprays. You don’t need every different style out there, y’all. Pick a few fun pieces and stick with it.
- Trim the picks into manageable size pieces. Nothing needs to be sticking out of the wreath. The easiest way to do this is to find nice break points in the picks to make a clean cut. If you have particularly thick pieces, use a stem cutter to make it easier.
- Build out around the area you want to place your bow. One of the easiest ways to keep bows in place is to use zip ties.
- DON’T Touch the hot glue. It HURTS. Enough said!
- Leave a portion of the grapevine untouched. When you’re making a fall grapevine wreath, the grapevine itself is part of the fall-charm. Let it show!
- Add some dimension to the project. You don’t just have to build left or right on the wreath, you can angle the florals out away from the door
- Have some fun and use products you love to add texture and color to make the design your own.

Here’s a quick list of what we used for this project, but you can always check out DecoExchange for all your craft supply needs.
How to Make a Fall Grapevine Wreath
- Take fall floral picks and greenery. Using the stem cutter, trim all the fall picks and greenery into smaller stems.
- Build out the picks and stems on your grapevine wreath base on each side of where you want to place your bow. Use either a glue pot or hot glue gun to secure the picks and stems into the grapevine. You can use a pipe cleaner to secure the stems stay in place and wrap around the grapevine.
- Continue the same process with the fall greenery for a fuller look. Follow a triangular pattern.
- Take out your ribbon and EZ Bow Maker.
- With the 1.5" ribbon, measure a 18" tail, and (3) 6" loops on each side, then cut the tail.
- With another 1.5" ribbon, measure a 18" tail and (2) 5.5" loops on each side then cut the tail.
- With the first 1.5" ribbon, measure a 18" tail and a 5" center loop then cut the tail.
- Take a zip tie and wrap around the center of the bow. Before you tighten the zip tie all the way, thread a pipe cleaner, then tighten the zip tie all the way.
- Fluff and arrange the bow to your preference. Cut a thin piece of ribbon and wrap around the center of the bow and tie off. Trim off the excess zip tie.
- Add the bow in the center of the greenery. Thread the pipe cleaner through the grapevine and tie nice and tight.
- Curl the tails of the ribbon and trim tails at an angle.
What about the bow?
There is some guidance on bow making in the video above but everyone knows the bow is a crucial part of your design. Check out the statement the bow makes on this project. To be honest, it would be pretty plain without it.
If bow making is something you struggle with I highly recommend you check out a previous blog post that walks you through how to make a few different types of bows. They get easier in time, but learning them is well worth the effort.
