A holiday wreath is a sure-fire way to make your home feel festive during the winter months. Rather than going out and buying a pre-made that everyone else will have on their front door, I like making my own using the bare grapevines and winter foliage from our ranch! It’s a surprisingly easy DIY that saves money, looks amazing, and is so rewarding. Plus, these wreaths make wonderful gifts!
Here’s what you need to recreate the look:
- Pruning shears
- Grapevine cuttings (Ask your local farmer for some of theirs!)
- Greenery (I used Fir and Bay leaves)
- Winter berries (I used Toyon berries)
- Green or silver paddle wire
- Optional add-ons: festive ribbon, bells, etc.
Step One: Gather your materials - greenery and grapevine cuttings. To be on the safe side, cut grapevines on the longer side so you can achieve an ideal, circular wreath shape.
Step Two: Form the grapevines into a circular wreath shape, intertwining vines to keep this shape. This can take time and patience, but you can do it! You can secure trouble areas with wire.
Step Three: Begin adding the greenery and red berries to the bare grapevine wreath. Secure the cuttings with wire.
Step Four: Display your wreath(s) for all to admire!
