Berry Splendor Wreath

Courtesy of Jo-Ann Stores

This holiday season, decorate your home with this easy to make wreath embellished with red berries and natural pinecones!

Materials

  • 18" Grapevne Wreath
  • Berry garland about 6'-9'
  • 3 large pinecone sprays with pine greenery
  • 5 small pinecone sprays with pine greenery
  • 2" wide wired ribbon about 3' long for bow
  • Floral wire and wire cutters, piece of floral foam, glue gun and glue sticks

Directions

  • Take an 18" grapevine wreath and cut any wire or wrap that holds the layers together. Gently separate the grapevine wreath into two wreaths that are still connected on one side, so that they overlap on one side.
  • Glue gun a piece of floral foam (size- about 5"x 4"x 3") to the intersection of the two wreath sections, where they overlap. Wire the two wreaths together for strength in the places that they overlap. (see diagram)
  • Place the berry garland over the grapevine wreath and secure it with floral wire. Fluff the berry garland to hide the areas of attachment and make it look more natural.
  • Use large and small pinecone sprays in the areas of attachment, to hide the places where the floral wire was used. Glue gun the small pinecone sprays to the wreath and use the large pinecone sprays in the floral foam. Make a large wired ribbon bow with a piece of ribbon about 3' long. Weave the bow ends through the berries and pinecone sprays greenery.
  • Look at the wreath and fluff berries where needed. Add additional floral wire where needed for stability.

Enjoy your wreath!
