Berry Wreaths

These beautiful wreaths are very popular where I live and can be used year after year. They also make nice gifts. It's a simple project and you need no special talent. Your project will look professionally done with little effort.

Approximate Time 45 - 60 minutes for each nine inch wreath shown

Supplies:

  • grapevine wreath - old or new
  • strand of red berries - I used a little less than one strand for each 9" wreath.

  • scissors and/or a wire cutter
  • glue gun
  • ribbon to make bow or pre-made bow
  • wire to attach bow and make a hanger

Instructions:

  1. Use scissors or wire cutters to remove the berries, keeping a small stem attached, from the main "branch".
  2. Arrange as you go, and insert the berry bunch stems through the spaces in the grapevine wreath. Hot glue each section into place. Continue around the wreath until the grapevine is completely covered.
  3. Make your bow. I find wired ribbon much easier to work with. Attach your homemade or pre-made bow to the wreath with wire. Add a wire loop for hanging to the back of the wreath.
