Grapevine Wreath Ideas

Hi Everyone!

One of my very favorite things to make wreaths out of is a grapevine wreath form. They provide you with a nice sturdy and attractive base for any kind of decor.  I’ve made grapevine wreaths for the inside and the outside of my house and for all Seasons. They are not difficult to make and they usually go together quite quickly.  I typically will choose a pip berry, leaf, or other kind of garland to use on the wreath to help make it look fuller; I will glue that on first, then I will usually use a picture, plaque, initial, or wooden words and build the rest of the wreath around those choices.  I’ll usually pick a coordinating ribbon and some silk or dry flowers to finish off whatever look I’m trying to achieve.  I have found that creating the look I want is easier to do when I take the time to place the accented pieces onto the wreath, stand back and look at it and only when I’m happy with how it looks will I *then* use the hot glue to attach all to the wreath for safe keeping. There are a myriad of options out there and the sky is the limit, again, let your imagination be your guide and don’t be afraid to try something new. I will add some pictures of some of the grapevine wreaths that I’ve made in the last couple of years; I hope one of them will inspire you to try to make a grapevine wreath for yourself.  🙂

I’ve made several of these wreaths for gifts and some for my own use.  I made the wreath below to hang on my family room door to use with my every day decor.  A couple of cousins fell in love with it, so I decided to go ahead and make them each one for a little “just because” gift.  As I’ve mentioned before, I love to give homemade gifts, the recipients know that your creation was made with them specifically in mind. ❤

This one hangs in our Powder Room:

Our daughter asked me to make these two wreaths for two of her co-workers. I tried really hard to make them in colors and design specific to each of the recipients.  Apparently, they both loved the final products, so I think I was successful. YaY!! 🙂

This was was created for the front door and when I get an itch for a change, I’ll hang this up out there.

I made this one for Fall a couple of years ago…

And I made this one last Fall specifically for the family room door:

The accent color in my living and dining rooms is that pretty green that is seen everywhere I look now-a-days. I made this wreath to hang in my dining room, I really love the oval shape:

This is another wreath that I hang on my front door at times…

As you can see I’ve utilized the basic grapevine wreath form to make some new and different creations. I love country decor and these wreaths lend themselves so very nicely to bringing the country look into a room or onto a door.  I really hope that you will give one a try! 🙂

Until next time, y’all take good care!
