Learn how to make a simple DIY grapevine Christmas wreath with this easy tutorial and you’ll have a pretty holiday door decoration in minutes!
If my mom was the bumper sticker type, our old 1984 Dodge Caravan would have sported one that read “I break for grapevines!”
No, she’s not a wine-o.
When I was little, Mom was known to pull the minivan over if she spotted wild grapevines growing on the side of the road so we could make our own DIY grapevine wreaths for each season.
With Christmas just a few weeks away, lots of churches and organizations in our town are holding wreath sales. And while I love supporting a good cause, sometimes it’s nice to hang something on your door other than the ubiquitous pine wreath.
So although I don’t have time to break for grapevines anymore, I put together this easy DIY grapevine Christmas wreath to harken back to crafty afternoons searching for vines with my mom.

You don’t need much to make this easy DIY grapevine Christmas wreath, and some of the supplies may be in your backyard! Here are the supplies I used, but get creative and make on that’s unique for your own door!
- Grapevine wreath form (I prefer 12″ to 18″ diameter)

- Evergreen clippings from your yard
- Floral wire
- Unfinished wood snowflake
- White pearlescent craft paint
- White glitter (optional)
How to Make a DIY Grapevine Wreath
Making the actual grapevine wreath form is out of scope for me now (and probably for years to come). While it’s quite doable, it’s also time-consuming, so purchase a cheap pre-made grapevine wreath form to start your project.
Clip a few branches from your Christmas tree, pine trees in your yard, or a holly bush if you have one (as we used to at our old house). Then use the floral wire to attach the branches to the wreath form.
Next, add a coat of pretty pearlescent craft paint to the wood snowflake. When the paint’s dry, brush on a bit of craft glue and sprinkle the snowflake with glitter for extra sparkle.
Attach your pre-made wreath bow using the wire it comes with, then use floral wire to attach the snowflake after the glue dries.
Get Creative with Nature!
Do you have pinecones or acorns in your yard this year? If so, use a dab of hot glue to add them to your wreath. Just watch out for the sap! You can also use a snowflake ornament instead of the wood cutout (I just found a pack of 3 for $3 in Target’s holiday shop), and add a cute bird floral pick.
There are endless ways to customize your DIY grapevine Christmas wreath, but don’t spend more than 15 minutes on it so you have plenty of time to watch National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
