Hey, y’all! I love animal prints, which is kind of funny because I don’t use them in my designs nearly enough. Well, that’s about to change right now! As I was designing today’s design, I just knew that it wouldn’t be complete without an animal print. In fact, it couldn’t be just any animal print – it needed to be a leopard print!
So, I grabbed this amazing leopard print ribbon and used it in the bow.
This is a great summertime – or any time design! If you like this one, be sure to also check out our Lemon Grapevine Wreath With Blue And White Florals, Freesia Grapevine Wreath, and Everyday Grapevine and Burlap Wreath.

How To Make This Grapevine Wreath With A Leopard Print Bow
Follow this step-by-step guide to put your cute leopard print bow wreath together so you can hang it on your door!
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.
Take your EZ Bow Maker and start making your bow. Grab your (4”) ribbon and make (2) 7” loops with 12” tails in an “X” shape.
Grab your 2.5” ribbon and make 12” tails with (2) loops that are 6.5”.
Take your 1.5” ribbon and make 12” tails with (2) 6” loops.
Grab a pipe cleaner and wrap it around the middle of your bow. Twist the pipe cleaner to secure the bow. Use the same pipe cleaner to attach the bow towards the top left part of the wreath form.
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.
Before adding your greenery sprigs, move each piece of greenery around to loosen it up and spread it out so that it doesn’t look too “straight from the package”. The goal is to make it look more natural – the way that greenery looks in nature.
Begin adding your greenery, pushing each stem individually into the grapevine from each side of the bow. Add a dab of hot glue to each stem before you stick it in the grapevine so that it stays in place once dry.
Repeat the same process as you add the florals to your wreath. This will add a little fun color and texture to your greenery!
Complete the design by inserting a couple of small sprigs into your bow to make the bow seem like an even more natural part of your wreath design.
Trim your ribbon tails in a dovetail shape.
And, that’s it!
