So, my choice is summer and how to make this grapevine wreath. Of course, since it’s $10 or below, it’s especially great I have everything on hand. Except the eucalyptus garland. Okay, that’s a bit over but it’s a pack of two.

Two Eucalyptus Garland to Cover the Grapevine

First off, I did find this two-pack eucalyptus for $14.99 on Amazon.  Additionally, if you have prime, it ships free.  Now you may be wondering how good of a product can this be for the price.

I highly recommend this garland.  Before ordering this, I was bit skeptical.  However, needing fake weather safe eucalyptus because this will be exposed to the elements, I gave this a shot.  And let me tell you I love it! I am a fake flower snob.  I’m not a big fan, therefore, when I find fake that I like I’ll shout it from the rooftop.  If you need such a product, get it!!

Attaching the Grapevine Wreaths Together with Zip Ties

After receiving the garland, I put a plan together for how to make this grapevine wreath.  Before I begin a new project, I always check my craft closet.  I was also especially happy to find a 30″ and 18″ grapevine wreath blanks.  You can buy the 30″ and 18″ from these links inexpensively.

The first thing, connecting the wreaths together. Zip ties work especially well for this step. You can be find these here at Amazon.  I am using the zip ties for how to make this grapevine wreath because I want the wreaths stable.  Also, I think the zip ties allowed for a snugger fit.

Here Begin Adding the Larger Flower Pots Tying Them with Jute

Next, I begin adding the flower pots.  Incidentally, I made the flower pots similarly in this post.

For this wreath, I add white craft paint by brushing and rubbing the paint with a rag into the flower pots.  This is especially done to allow the texture to be seen.

After rubbing the paint I add a bit of green to how to make a grapevine wreath for a moss look.  This adds another layer of texture to the flower pots.

Next came time to add the flowerpots to the wreath.  Incidentally, you will see I also add small flower pots to the greenery in this wreath.  Layering the smaller pots adds another element of texture and depth.

First, we begin adding the larger flower pots using jute.  Here you will want to angle the pot and tie tightly.  By the way, three pots work great for how to make this grapevine wreath.  Forming a triangle is best.

Now Begin Adding Smaller Pots to the Wreath

Next step, we add the small terracotta pots using the same method.  Here, we use two small clay pots.   Incidentally, this works well for the odd number in decorating.

Also, the best part of this eucalyptus grapevine wreath no glue.  This also gives me the option to reuse these pieces for another project.   

Now, Let’s Begin Cutting and Adding Eucalyptus Garland to the Grapevine Wreath

Next, I cut my first garland in four pieces.  We then begin adding a section at a time.  During this process we use the florist wire to hold the garland in place.  Simply, find an opening on the wreath and slide your wire through grapevine round.  Continue this process with the additional garland until you cover the wreath.  This step is up to how you want the project to look.

Also, take a step back to look at the wreath after the first garland.  This is particularly important to make sure the wreath is symmetrical.  Continue until the greenery on the wreath is full enough.  By the way, I did keep the grapevine bare here and there.  I like the texture of the grapevine.

Lastly, slip a larger piece of florists wire through the back for hanging.  Because  this is 22 gauge it is strong enough.

The last step, using a wooden plaque, I paint it two coats of off white paint. Then I add a graphic found on Pinterest printing it on card stock.

Next, I glue using Mode Podge and dry brush with raw umber paint. Adding an aged look to the tag.

By the way, this wreath can easily work for the fall.  Add fake pumpkins to the greens or fall foliage to the pots.  You can add flowers to the wreath seasonally as well.

I hope you enjoyed how to make this grapevine wreath and make one for your home.

  5. Cindy, I LOVE your wreath with its eucalyptus and sweet flower pots!!! Faux eucalyptus is better anyway since the scent of the real McCoy is really strong when fresh. πŸ˜‰ I love what how you layered the paint on the flower pots ~ I need to try this. I just got a really nice small pot at Lowe’s yesterday and it is straight up the side with no lip. It would look nice with the dry brush green/white for patina. Really nice job on your wreath!

    I learn so much from everyone’s posts here on $10 on the 10th… Like layering wreaths and tying them together for fullness. Never would have come up with that on my own. <3

    Enjoy your pretty wreath and I love the wire cloches you have out front in the urns… Might steal that idea, too. πŸ˜‰

    Summer hugs,
    Barb πŸ™‚
