Nostalgic Grapevine Christmas Wreath

This grapevine Christmas wreath is a fun holiday project. I just made this nostalgic 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 Christmas Wreath Tutorial

Materials

Materials for our Christmas grapevpine wreath
Materials needed for our grapevine wreath project
  • A grapevine wreath (not shown); any size is fine but we chose one on the larger side.
  • 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 smidgen for sparkle and color.

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

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.

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.
