Create an icy greeting with this beautiful winter welcome grapevine wreath!

I love this neutral, classic design because it is so well-balanced. From the slightly rustic sign to the tiny pops of glitter, this grapevine wreath has found a happy medium between homey and elevated. 

This project was made specifically with winter in mind, filled with tons of flocked elements and icy accents.

How to make a winter welcome wreath

1. Prep the base

To start, prep your base by attaching your “welcome” sign to your grapevine wreath, slightly off-center. 

Feed florist wire through the grapevine and the holes in the top and bottom of the sign, twisting tightly to secure. 

Trim most of the excess wire, then use pliers to turn the ends back into the wreath.  

2. Trim winter sprays

Next, trim a few elements from your winter sprays to be used later, including silver leaves, crabapple berries, and one type of greenery. 

Skip this step if you’re working with singular elements!

3. Craft your bow

For your bow, first measure a 14” tail of your 2 ½” plaid ribbon, pinch, and pleat. Then, measure 12” for a 6” loop, pinch, pleat, and twist. Repeat for a total of three loops, trimming the tail. 

Repeat these steps with the 1 ½” sequin ribbon, working on top of this base. 

Wrap the center of your bow with florist wire to secure, and finish the center with a small cutting of plaid ribbon tied around the back. 

Attach to the side of your grapevine wreath using florist wire. 

4. Add winter sprays

To build the base of your winter welcome grapevine wreath, attach two winter sprays on either side of your bow, one facing upwards and the other moving downward.

Secure with hot glue and use bind wire on the ends to reinforce. 

5. Build out your elements

Next, add trimmed flocked greenery to the outer edge of your wreath, keeping the established line. 

Repeat this with silver leaves, then dark green cypress peppered throughout your base. 

Finally, give dimension and airiness with trims of eucalyptus filling in any remaining holes. Remember to secure everything with hot glue. 

6. Finish your winter welcome wreath

As a final touch, add three stems of crabapple berries around your wreath in a triangle-like formation. This will bring light and dimension to the design, drawing your eye throughout.

And with a few tweaks and ample fluffing, your winter welcome wreath is complete!
