DIY this quick and easy fall grapevine wreath for your front door. An inexpensive project that can be done in just a short amount of time.
Most of the children have gone back to school by now so I feel like its socially acceptable to talk about decorating for fall.
This week I’m dedicating my Instagram Stories to refreshing the front porch for fall and sharing some fun and EASY DIY projects along the way. For a little more inspiration, check out this list of beautiful fall front porches.
Today’s project is a simple grapevine wreath using olive branches, some deep red eucalyptus, and mini pumpkins. While I had everything already on hand (craft hoarder), you can find these supplies fairly inexpensive at Dollar Tree, Walmart and Michaels.
Easy DIY Fall Grapevine Wreath
Tools used for this Project:
- floral or wire cutters
Materials used for this Project:
- grapevine wreath
- olive branch stems
- eucalyptus stems
- mini pumpkins
- zip ties (dollar store)
- super glue (dollar store)
- craft paint + brushes
Step One: Paint the Pumpkins
If your pumpkins aren’t the color you wish them to be for your wreath, use some craft paint to paint them. The colors I used were a mixture of Mocha, Milk Chocolate and Forest Moss.
Step Two: Arrange your Stems
Arrange your stems to create a swag before attaching to your wreath. I’ve found that this ends up being a bit easier than attaching each individual stem to the wreath.
Take the olive stems and snip off any excess stem. Place them in a swag form and zip tie the branches together.
Now layer in your eucalyptus stems, zip tying to the olive branches.
Snip off the excess tie.
Step Three: Attach the Swag to Wreath Form
Now that you have a nice full swag, position it on your wreath form how you’d like it. I chose to arrange my stems on the left side of the grapevine wreath.
Use zip ties to attach the swag to the wreath. Snip off the excess tie.
Step Four: Attach Pumpkins to Wreath
Once your painted pumpkins are dry, you can zip tie the pumpkin picks on to the wreath. Another option is the glue them on if you do not have the pick version.
To create a fuller, more natural look, I glued some leftover olive leaves to the under side of the pumpkins. If there are any zip tie knots exposed, glue on a leaf or extra olive. Super glue works great for this.
