Evergreen Christmas wreath
Artificial Greenery
Assorted picks (pine cones, etc.)
Jute rope or natural colored ornaments
Grapevine ornaments (assorted sizes)
Wire Cutters
Hot Glue Pan
Glue Sticks

Steps for making a DIY Lush Greenery Winter Wreath

Step 1 – Prepare Greenery
Cut pieces of greenery to add to your evergreen wreath. It is so important to take a moment to fluff all of your greenery pieces so they aren’t laying flat like they came straight out of the package from China.

Step 2 – Add Greenery
Next, add greenery to the evergreen wreath. I like to add the pieces all in the same direction. Add a bit of hot glue to the end before inserting into the wreath. Continue until you have a beautiful full green wreath.

Step 3 – Add Picks
Cut apart other picks you would like to use (pine cones, additional greenery, etc.) and add them into the wreath. Add a bit of hot glue to the ends before inserting into the wreath.  Again, I like to add all of the picks in the same direction. Set aside some of the berries and branches to add later.

Step 4 – Add Decorative Pieces
For added dimension, I included natural-looking ornaments. To add the jute rope ornaments to the wreath, I first pierced it with an awl and then threaded florist wire through it and used the wire to attach it to the wreath.

The grapevine ornaments can be added simply by twisting the evergreen pieces through the holes in the grapevine.

Step 5 – Fill In with Another Color
Next, I added in artificial hops for a bit more texture and a lighter color to break up the dark green and to fill in any empty areas of the wreath. Cut individual stems from the bush and add with a bit of hot glue.

Step 6 – Add Remaining Berries & Branches
Lastly, add the berries and branches to finish the wreath, intermingling them throughout the wreath with a bit of hot glue on the ends.

    I want to make the winter wreath with the sign in it. Is there a kit? Also, do you have any Valentine Day wreath tutorials?
    Thank you,

      No ma’am there is no kit. You can find the Valentine’s wreaths by searching the membership portal area (not the website area).

        Thank you for your quick response. I’ve been watching you as much as I can, but my wreath making and decorating has come to a halt due to my health. I just don’t have the energy to craft again. I love it so much so it’s been very difficult for me!?
        Thank you, Mrs. Julie

    Hi, love the wreath. Where do you find your greenery? I have a Hobby Lobby, but don’t see the packaged greenery you’re using. Ellen

    I made 25 wreaths to give to elderly tenants in our apartment complex. I use the 12 inch wire wreath forms and go to country and cut down cedar branches. I like to use pine cones but they are too big in proportion to the wreath size. Last week found about 40 small cones that I was going to put up for next year. Took them inside and a couple of days later went to get them to pack away and they had all opened up. I read that if I soak in water they will close up but what can I put on them to keep them closed.
