Every Day Grapevine Wreath Idea
First, I want to say that I can’t recommend having a natural everyday wreath in your shop enough. Buyers aren’t going to buy Christmas wreaths to give as a gift, right? But, they will buy a beautiful everyday wreath as a gift.
Here are some tips for getting started when making a grapevine wreath:
- Look at your entire grapevine base before starting to plan out your placement. If there are any blemishes, plan to cover those with your greenery, signs, bows, etc.
- Run your fingers lightly over your base and see if there are any sticks or anything else sticking out that could damage your customer’s door. If there are, take your cutters and cut them off before starting.
- Don’t worry about pulling out the leaves. It’s a natural grapevine design, so it’s natural – and expected – to have leaves in there.

How to Make a Grapevine Wreath
Follow these instructions to create a simple but timeless grapevine wreath design.
Start with your bow. Take your 2.5-inch burlap colored ribbon and make a 5.5-inch loop and 18-inch tail. Pinch, twist (so you see the pretty side of the ribbon in the other loop), and make a matching loop with a 18-inch tail.
Use a pipe cleaner in between the loops, twist it and set your bow aside for a moment.
Take the 1.5-inch natural white gingham ribbon and make a 15-inch tail with a 5-inch loop. Pinch, twist and repeat until you have 4 loops total (or 2 loops on each side).
Take the pipe cleaner off your burlap-colored ribbon and add your new double loop on top. Replace the pipe cleaner to hold it together while you continue working on your bow.
Take the 1.5-inch burlap-colored ribbon and make a 15-inch tail with a 4-inch single loop.
Remove the pipe cleaner from the bow and add this burlap loop on top. Replace the pipe cleaner and give it a good tight twist.
Fluff out your bow a little and make sure all the tails are hanging down.
Attach your bow to the grapevine base by pushing the pipe cleaners through the grapevine to hide the pipe cleaners. Tighten and twist, then tuck the ends back into the grapevine to hide them.
Fluff your bow then curl the tails of the bow.
Take your greenery sprigs and separate them. Then, starting from the bottom of the bow, insert pieces of greenery into the grapevine. Add a dab of hot glue to each greenery piece that you add to your grapevine.
Make your way towards the bow and insert a piece right under the bow.
Repeat the same process on the other side of (above) the bow, starting out away from the bow and inserting greenery closer and closer (and even under) your bow.
Grab your greenery with the tiny white blooms on it and separate the pieces by cutting them off with bolt cutters.
Layer a few pieces into the greenery you already inserted into your grapevine.
Take the eucalyptus greenery sprig and use your bolt cutters to cut off a few smaller pieces to layer into your greenery on the grapevine. Secure each stem you add with a dab of hot glue.
