How to Make the Grapevine Wreath?

Since you’ve already jumped on the DIY train, why buy a ready-made grapevine wreath when you can make one yourself? Wild grapevine oftentimes grows freely in gardens and most people usually pull it out. If you still have some vines left from your last winter clean-up, you can easily recycle them by turning them into a beautiful nature-inspired wreath. All you have to do is fill a bucket with hot water and soak the vine in it for about an hour. When you take them out of the bucket they will be softer and easier to form into shape. Wrap the branches together in a circular coil and leave them to dry overnight.

Start Assembling the Easter Wreath

Prepare your eggs by making two symmetrical holes across the top and bottom of the egg big enough for the flower wire to go through. Cut 4 inches (10 cm) of wire and push it through the bottom holes of the plastic egg and twist it a few times so that it stays in place. Do the same thing with all eggs and once you’re done apply hot glue to the rim of the plastic egg and glue the top and bottom parts so that the egg stays closed.

The next step is painting the eggs and the garland. One coat of paint should be enough to cover the eggs well. If you choose to add the garland to the wreath simply attach it by using the flower wire.

In order to attach the eggs to the vine wreath take a pencil and curl the ends of the flower wire that you put through the holes at the bottom of the plastic eggs in order to create a little hook. Hook the eggs to the wreath and secure them by adding some hot glue. You can do the same with the garland if needed and any other decoration you choose to attach to the Easter wreath.

The first thing you need to do is cut the cross base out of cardboard. The optimal size is 30 inches (76 cm) vertically and 26 inches (66 cm) horizontally, however, you can alter those to your liking. Once the cross is cut you can start adding the leaves on top and gluing them down with the hot glue gun. Put the medium-sized leaves on top for a layered look.

  • a small and large boxwood store-bought wreath (or simply make your own vine wreath and glue some greenery on top to achieve a similar look)
  • a thick accent ribbon of choice (the one used here is a white and pink gingham ribbon)

First thing you’re going to do is cut the ears off the bunny headband (leave the middle part of the headband in between the two ears for better support when attaching them to the wreath). Once you’ve done that cut some pieces of the floral wire and attach the ears to the smaller wreath. Repeat the same process to attach the small wreath on top of the larger one. Tie a tight knot to secure the two wreaths in place.

Cut about a meter off the ribbon roll and make a nice tight bow. Attach the bow to the center in between the two wreathes with either floral wire or hot glue. You can trim the edges of the ribbon for a more neat look.

Finally, use the hot glue gun to attach the pom poms to the wreath. The pom poms represent the tail of the Easter bunny, so you want to put three together and glue them either at the low left or right corner of the big wreath, depending on which direction you want your Bunny wreath to be facing.
