DIY Strawberry Wreath On Grapevine: Step-By-Step Tutorial
1. Prep And Attach Sign
The very first step is to attach the sign to the grapevine wreath base. This will be your focal point, so place it at the top of the wreath.
Attach wire to the back of the sign and then tightly twist the wire to the grapevine wreath base. You will then thread your wire through the wreath brambles and twist them, so they are secured.
There is another benefit of placing the wires through the wreath instead of around the outside of it. When you thread the wires through it, you will leave more space for the greenery and ribbons to attach.
2. Make Bow
Next, make the bow (or bows) for your wreath. In the video at the bottom of this post, you will see that I pre-made the bow ahead of time.
I like to spend time making a bunch of bows and storing them for later. This way, I can just grab the bow I want as I’m creating the wreath. It’s a huge time-saver.
3. Attach Your Bow
Use the wire you used to secure the bow together and thread that wire through the grapevine at the bottom of your wreath. I want people to look directly at the middle of the wreath, so I placed the large bow directly underneath my sign.
Then, twist the wire together. Make sure you take the time to fluff and arrange your bow – this step is what really makes your bow look pretty!
4. Add Greenery Picks
Choose your favorite types of greenery to add to your wreath. The ones I chose contain multiple types of grass and textures. I just taught my Wreath Making of The Month Club how to choose greenery and what styles to use. I hope you’ll join us!
Use more than one type of greenery to add depth and fullness to the wreath. The bushel used has three different types of greenery in it.
When you know what type of greenery picks you are going to use, add them to the wreath. Remember to keep the design balanced. Whatever you do to the left, you should also do to the right.
Continue to layer and add greenery, working your way away from the large bow.
5. Add Strawberry Picks
What is a strawberry wreath without strawberry picks? I have a bouquet with fake strawberries and leaves, and it is the perfect thing for this wreath. Break them apart and add them individually to your wreath.
To do this, arrange individual pieces around the bow by dipping the ends in hot glue before placing them into the grapevine base. Work your way around the top and bottom of the bow, making sure to keep both sides balanced.
6. Add Filler Flowers
Now it’s time to add a few filler flowers. These are flowers with smaller buds that have some of the same shades of red and pink as the colors in your ribbons. Dip them into the glue and layer them throughout your existing floral and strawberry picks.
7. Final Touches
You can stop here, or you can keep going and add more layers to your wreath. Keep adjusting it until it is perfected to your liking.
