Now I am kind of on a grapevine wreath kick. You may remember that last month I created a fall wreath with this same base. I had stopped by Trader Joe's, to buy everything pumpkin, and saw these gorgeous grapevine wreaths for $3.99. Since the fall wreath I went back and bought two more bases to tuck away for Christmas wreaths which I am showing you today!
I headed to Joann's because I knew they had their Christmas florals out already and they were running a coupon for 20% off my purchase again. Now when I go into pick the florals I am going to use I actually bring the wreath with me. I like to faux mock it up in the store to make sure I am on the right track. It can take longer but I think it is better in the long run. I am a very visual crafter.
I tend with grapevine wreath to stay more towards the natural florals. I knew that with this particular wreath I want to cover the whole base with red berries. Once I got the wreath home I laid out the sprigs spacing them evenly before weaving them into the wreath.
Once I had the wreath laid out I started to weave the florals through the grapevines.
Once they were woven through the back side I used floral wire to secure the berries. Going through the front of the wreath and twisting the wire tightly in the back. Then I added the pinecones and burlap petals as the focal point off centered on the front of the wreath.
What I love about these grapevine wreaths is that they are so simple to make and it almost takes longer to buy the materials than it does to actually assemble the wreaths.
Now here's the moment we have all been waiting for. What are the other party goers up to today? What did these ladies make with their wreaths?! Make sure to check them all out.
