The grapevine ball is a popular way to add a natural accent to decor. You’ll most often see them piled up in a low bowl, or sitting atop a mantel. But when I started considering these twiny balls, I was reminded of their big sister – the grapevine wreath. And perhaps these two wanted to have a family reunion? That was the idea behind my DIY grapevine wreath for today’s post!
- Darice 18″ Grapevine Wreath Form
- 3 Darice 6″ Grapevine Balls
- Darice Faux Hydrangea Long Stems (I used 5 stems in assorted colors)
- 5 Stems of Darice Faux Bear Grasses
- 2 Darice Faux Rosemary Stems
- Black and White Striped Ribbon
- Darice Floral Wire
- Darice Hot Glue Gun
I collected my goods and got to work. What I love about the DIY grapevine wreath form is that it is so easy to decorate. With all of the nooks and crannies, you can tuck floral accents and sprigs right into the wreath without having to worry about glue or wire.
It might seem natural to aim for symmetry – especially in a wreath, but I’ve found that I much prefer my “clumps” of decor off to one side. The same goes for arranging flowers. Do it in clumps, rather than trying to create a perfectly symmetrical look. Symmetry doesn’t happen all that often in nature, and so it doesn’t have to happen in your natural decor.
These little rosemary bunches scream of spring and summer to me, so I happily tucked them into the floral bunch along with the grasses. I love how full they make the arrangement on my DIY grapevine wreath look as well.
