DIY Outdoor Winter Wreath For Your Door

In today’s video, we’re creating a DIY Outdoor Winter Wreath for Your door. Truly you could use this wreath anytime. It’s a simple, elegant wreath made using a grapevine wreath as the base and filled in using plastic greenery and a neutral, burlap bow. Here’s how:

DIY Outdoor Winter Wreath For Your Door

  • Separate the individual pieces from the evergreen and fern bushes so you have individual pieces and not one large bush.
  • Take the time now to prep your greenery – open up all the leaves, trim any excess pieces towards the bottom and add floral picks to the bottom of pieces that need the extra support.
  • Grapevine wreaths are not always perfectly round so take a moment to look yours over and determine which part of the wreath you want to be the top and bottom.
  • Next, make the bow. I used a wired neutral linen burlap style ribbon but you could use anything you would like. For this bow I made three 14 inch long loops. For detailed bow making instructions, click here.
  • Attach the bow to the grapevine by attaching the wire into a few of the grapevine pieces. Note: Do not wrap the wire around the entire wreath.
  • Start placing the greenery around the wreath. I like to go in the direction of the wreath so I do not put everything straight up and down, I turn pieces sideways or even upside down. Note: Do not hot glue until you are sure you love the placement!
  • Once you are sure of the placement, hot glue the stems in place.
  • In any areas where hot glue is showing, simply cover it with sheet moss.
  • If you would like your bow tails to lay a certain way, you can attach wire to an area of the ribbon and attach it to a certain part of the wreath or add a bit of hot glue to help it stay.
  • Trim any of the wooden picks you used to ensure they aren’t sticking out from the wreath.
  • Hot glue leftover silk leaves from another project (or other leaves would be fine too) to cover the back of the wreath to give it a more finished look.
