Spring Grapevine Wreath Instructions
If you are looking for an easy spring grapevine wreath idea, then this tutorial is perfect. All it takes is a few simple steps. This adorable front door decoration is one that anyone can make and is guaranteed to brighten up any front porch! Let’s get started!
For this wreath, we’re starting by making our bow.
Start by making a long tail, two 11-inch loops, and two loops at 12 inches. Bring your tail down and cut.
Secure your bow with a zip tie. Then place your bow in the top left corner of the wreath frame and use a pipe cleaner to secure it to the grapevine wreath.
Using a zip tie, attach your ribbon tail to the top right of your wreath form.
Repeat the same steps for the bottom tail, making a waterfall effect and securing it down along the left side of the wreath form with a zip tie.
Dovetail your ribbon tails and fluff out your bow loops.
Cut your ficus stem into three separate pieces.
Add the stems to your grapevine wreath around your bow. Spread them out around your bow to create a design where your bow is at the center.
Feel free to take a step back from time to time to see if you need to add any more pieces.
Pull apart your greenery stems so that you have five separate wired picks.
Trim the edges and then place hot glue on the ends of the stems. Add these filler stems in front of the ficus leaves you just inserted. Start by working around your bow to add a little bit of greenery around your bow and create a cohesive design.
Cut a 20-inch piece of ribbon and attach it by running a zip-tie through the grapevine. This adds length to your grapevine by adding another tail.
Remove the leaves off of the snapdragon flowers. We are only going to use the white flowery part of this bush.
Fill in the empty spaces and add some pop of white to this grapevine. Use hot glue on the end of the vines, and place them in spaces around your bow.
Different Options To Style Your Simple Spring Grapevine Wreath
In just 20 minutes, we have a beautiful everyday simple spring grapevine wreath that’s neutral enough to be perfect for any home.
But if you like the basic design and feel the need to change it, there are several ways you can do that:
- Add a sign to take your design to another level
- Change the ribbon color or design
- Use a different ribbon size
- Choose different greenery and floral stems
- Spray-paint the grapevine wreath base for a more chic look
If you have any questions about making this project, you’ve come to the right place! Here are some questions I frequently see readers ask about making grapevine wreaths. Please leave your question in the comments if you don’t see it already answered below.
Could I use a wire frame instead of a grapevine base?
The easy rustic nature of the grapevine frame is ideal for this design. A wireframe won’t hold your florals in place, and it won’t look good for this design, either.
Will another type of adhesive work?
Hot glue is the ideal type of glue to use when securing stems and picks in a grapevine base because it’s bulky enough to grab hold of surrounding wreath frame stems. It also dries quickly, so you don’t spend unnecessary time holding stems in place while the glue dries.
Super glue and other adhesives are either too thin or take too long to dry, so I recommend using hot glue.
