A floral grapevine wreath can be an intimidating DIY.  Floral arrangements do not come naturally and take some practice.

They can be incredibly easy, though.

I decided to take a whack at it as we finished up our front porch makeover.  With all of the big steps out of the way, I decided to sit down and make something beautiful to add a little color.  We worked really hard on our front porch and I wanted to make sure it looked finished.

Here is a tutorial to walk you through exactly how easy it can be to work with a grapevine wreath.

You will need:

  • Grapevine wreath
  • Flowers of your choice
  • Wire cutters
  • Glue gun

I purchased my wreath and flowers at Pat Catans.  Hands down, they are the greatest place to buy silk flowers.  They are so inexpensive and they have an INCREDIBLE selection!

Start by using the wire cutters to remove all of the flowers from the larger stems.

Begin weaving the greenery into the grapevine wreath.  Never underestimate the value of greenery.  It adds a fullness to your wreath that cannot be achieved with flowers alone.

After all of your greenery has been secured, add your staple flowers.  These are your largest flowers.

If the stems are extremely thick, strip the plastic away so only the wire of the stem is left.

Next, weave in all of your smaller flowers.

Finally, use your glue gun to tack any pieces that may not be as secure as you would like them.  Add a string or bow to hang your wreath and move that baby to the door!

I fell in love with my wreath almost immediately.  It’s full, colorful, and plays off of my front door perfectly.  I know that I’m a little early for fall colors but I figure with summer coming to an end, it would be silly to make a summer wreath.  I’m just one step ahead of the game.  That’s what I’m telling myself at least.
