Winter Greens on DIY Grapevine Wreaths

Winter Greens on DIY Grapevine Wreaths

I just love fresh greens for the holidays. Something about hanging up fresh wreaths and garlands + smelling that yummy piney smell puts me in the Christmas spirit.

Last month, my friend Ashley taught me how to make Grapevine Wreaths. You can find the full instruction + a video tutorial here.

This past weekend, I got together with friends and we added some beautiful winter greens to our grapevine wreaths. This was such a fun project, and turned they out so festive!

Supply list:

Grapevine wreath, {tutorial here}, floral wire, fresh greens (I just foraged and cut greens from my yard), ribbon, + any garnishes you want to add. I added some micro LED lights to my wreath to add some sparkle on our front door in the evening hours.

I foraged around the yard and cut any evergreen type plant that caught my eye…anything with berries is also very beautiful.

Just take you greens, cut, and add them to your wreath any way you like, making them as full as you prefer. Wire the greens on for safe keeping, and then add ribbon {ornaments, lights, etc..} to top it all off.

We sprayed ours with a greenery spray to help them last longer. I also made a few wreaths that I didn’t spray to see if it really makes that much of a difference, I’ll let you know what I conclude.

I also added these fun battery operated LED micro-lights.{Note, these are not the exact lights I used, but give you an idea of what to look for. I ordered warm white.} The lights come on + shut off everyday automatically, so I don’t even have to think about it! They are the tiniest, cutest lights I’ve ever seen! I also grabbed some of the same lights to add to the greens on my mantle.


Happy Holidays!
