How To Make A Simple Christmas Wreath With Frosted Berries
Follow this wreath tutorial to use a combination of Christmas greenery to create a beautifully festive grapevine wreath!
Prepare your grapevine base by inspecting it to see if there are any leaves or stems that stick out too far. If you see any, cut them off.
Next, we’re going to make our bow.
Take your EZ Bow Maker and your first 2.5” ribbon and measure (2) 13-inch tails with (6) 6-inch loops. Each side will have 3 loose loops and a tail that hangs down.
Use a pipe cleaner around the middle to hold it together and attach it to the top of your grapevine wreath base.
Take your pine evergreen picks and trim off the excess length of the pick stem with bolt cutters.
Add a dab of hot glue and insert one pick into the wreath base on each side of the bow to add some greenery. Let the pick on the left side hang down a little farther to beef up the overall design.
Curl the ribbon tails.
Take one of the frosted evergreen picks and add a dab of hot glue to the end. Insert it into the wreath frame on top of the pine pick on the left side to add some winter texture.
Use a small zip tie to secure the picks to the wreath frame near the bottom so they don’t bend or get misshapen.
Take your red berry picks and spread out the stems to make them look more natural. Trim off any excess length on the stems and insert the pick underneath your bow on the left side.
Insert the second red berries pick into the design toward the bottom of the wreath.
Layer these picks into the overall design by pulling some of the pine stems and pinecones through to the front. This creates an overall cohesive design.
Repeat the process by adding a red berries pick to the right of the bow, too. Since the greenery is less prominent on this side, trim the berry pick down so it’s smaller and proportional to the greenery.
A second piece of the berries pick can be inserted further down on the right side to spread them out while adding color and texture.
If you want to, pull one of the berry bunches through the bow so it sticks out of the bow.
Take your ribbon and cut a 36” piece. We’re going to use it to make fake ribbon tails. Measure down about 8 inches from one end, pinch the ribbon in the middle, and fold it so that the sides come together. Use a zip tie (or pipe cleaner) to hold it this way and attach it to the wreath.
Note: you can also use a pick machine to add a pick right to the end and insert it into the wreath.
Insert your ribbon tail under the left side of the bow, pulling the shorter tail toward the top of the design and letting the long tail hang down.
Grab the long tail around the middle of the way down and use a small zip tie to attach the tail to the wreath frame so that it creates almost a pouf between attachment points.
Cut three more strips of ribbon (8” long) to add more ribbon tails on either side of the long tail and one in the upper right of the design.
Fluff out your bow and the Christmas picks so that it looks the way you want it to. Also, go ahead and curl the ribbon tails under.
Your wreath is now complete!
