Steps for how to make a Santa Christmas Wreath on Grapevine Base

Step 1 – Begin by making your bow. I made mine with 10-inch tails and 12-inch loops but you can adjust the size if you need a bow larger or smaller. Just do what ‘feels’ right. Yes, I have to feel my wreaths! LOL For detailed bow making instructions, click here. Set the bow aside once you’ve made it.

Step 2 – Determine placement for the Santa. Feed wire through the back of the Santa and into the foam. Then attach to the grapevine using the wire and piercing through the foam but making sure the wire cannot be seen on the front.

Step 3 – Next, attach the bow using florist wire on the opposite side of the santa. This helps to balance the wreath. Be sure to fluff the bow loops so the bow doesn’t lay flat.

Step 4 – Now it’s time for the greenery. Start by adjusting the pieces to make sure they are open and bent the way you would like. Add hot glue to the stem and insert into the grapevine. I started by adding one above and one below the bow.

Step 5 – Continue adding greenery to fill in your wreath. Tip: You can cut pieces from a greenery bush and use the individual pieces where you need something smaller. You can also add additional red berries where you would like.

Step 6 – Next, add the red and white swirl picks. Simply add hot glue to the stem (trim the stem if needed) and insert where you would like in the wreath. These can then be bent in the direction you would like.

Step 7 – Finish your wreath by filling in open areas. You can also add greenery inside the bow loops for a beautiful finishing touch.
