Nostalgic Grapevine Christmas Wreath

Are you looking for Christmas wreath ideas?

I just made this nostalgic grapevine Christmas wreath in blue and silver for our front door. It was easy. It's more a matter of gathering up pretty materials than it is technique.


So come along and see how I made this. I am very happy with the result. It has a little bit of vintage attitude!

Christmas Wreath Tutorial

Materials

Materials for our Christmas grapevpine wreath
Materials we used


    - A grapevine wreath (not shown). Any size is fine but we chose a larger one.
    - A frosty garland
    - 3 evergreen picks
    - 3 aqua snowflake ornaments
    - 3 silver squiggly ornaments
    - 1 vintage type ornament to be tied to the bow
    - 1 roll wide burlap ribbon for bow (I ended up using wide burlap ribbon plus two other shiny rolls of ribbon - aqua and silver)
    - thin floral wire



    frosted garland on grapevine wreath


    I placed the frosted garland onto the grapevine wreath. It fit almost perfectly. I attached it with floral wire in several places.



    evergreen picks


    Now I will add the evergreen picks to the wreath.



    evergreen picks tucked into the grapevine wreath


    If you look closely, you can see that I tucked the evergreen picks onto the wreath. They give it an overall wispy look.



    aqua snowflakes and silver squiggly ornaments tucked beneath evergreen picks


    Next, I tucked in the aqua snowflakes and the silver squiggly ornaments. I only wanted a hint of them to show so I tucked them underneath the evergreen picks so that they show just a smidge for sparkle and color.

    bow made from burlap, aqua and silver ribbons


    I tied a simple bow using burlap, aqua and silver ribbon.



    bow is attached to the wreath with floral wire


    I attached the bow to the wreath with floral wire. Usually I put bows on the sides of the wreath but this one I decided to center at the top of the wreath.



    added the vintage bulb to the bow for a vintage flair


    Lastly, I added the pretty vintage Christmas bulb to the bow with just a skinny piece of silver ribbon that I tied in a bow. I like this finishing touch.

    Here is a close-up of the ornament tied to the bow with a strand of silver ribbon.

    We found the sparkly garland at Home Goods and made the cute hanging balls in the transom window from leftover blue ornaments we had.

    Do you see our Christmas mailbox? We made that, too, and here is the free mailbox tutorial.
