Simple yet special, Gild Collective’s grapevine wreath is a little bit glitzy, a little bit rustic and totally festive. The oversized pine sprays add a little extra oomph so your wreath stands out on your block and wows guests before they even ring the doorbell.
Monogram Grapevine Wreath
What You Need
18” Grapevine wreath
6” White wooden letter
Gold straw and leaf strands
What To Do
Choose the placement for your wooden letter. You will secure it in two or three spots (depending on the shape of the letter) using baker’s twine.
Weave a strand of baker’s twine behind 23 pieces of grapevine and tie the twine in a bow around the front of your letter. Repeat in one to two more places on your letter to ensure it is secure.
Insert the branch of one of your pine sprays into the grapevine behind the base of your letter.
The branch of the pine spray will poke through the back of the wreath. Bend the branch slightly (it is made of wire) and tuck it under a strong piece of grapevine to secure it.
Spread the pine spray until it is as big and wide as you want it to look.
Repeat steps 4 and 5 with the second pine spray at the top of your letter.
Insert the straight end of one piece of gold straw into the grapevine behind one of the pine sprays. Push it through until the end of the straw sticks out of the other side, then pull it through so that the curled ends remain behind the pine spray.
Weave the straight end back through the grapevine in the direction of the other pine spray. Continue this process on the top and bottom of the wreath until the gold straw is all woven through.
The side of the wreath between pine sprays will shine with several gold strands woven through, and the curled ends will add dimension to the top and bottom of your wreath.
Tuck your leaf strands into the grapevine all the way around your wreath. The placement is totally up to you.
Tuck one berry spray in front of each of your pine sprays and tuck the wire ends behind the wreath.
Hang your homemade wreath with pride, you’ll be be the envy of the neighborhood.
