How to Make a Winter Wreath
- 18-inch grapevine wreath (from a craft store or Walmart)
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun (or floral wire)
- 3 white star ornaments (Dollar Tree)
- Clear gems (Dollar Tree, floral section)
- White and silver foam ball vase filler or white berries (Dollar Tree)
- 2-3 stems of lamb’s ear faux greenery (Dollar Tree or a craft store/Walmart)
Can’t find lamb’s ear at your Dollar Tree? Look for eucalyptus or pastel spring floral greenery bushes – it has similar silvery green foliage that will look great for winter, and you can either keep the spring flowers for a pop of color or remove them to keep the white monochromatic theme.
Step 1: Prep & Attach Greenery
Using the wire cutters, cut short sections of the greenery, around 6 inches long.
Apply a line of hot glue along the stem of the lamb’s ear and press it firmly onto the grapevine wreath. Be cautious to avoid burning your fingers with the glue.
Add the greenery stems along one side of the wreath base from the top of the wreath to the bottom of the wreath. Place the stems pointing toward the a center point (where you’ll add the stars later) to create a spray of greenery on the wreath.
Step 2: Add Ornaments
Once all the greenery is in place, add a generous amount of hot glue to the backside of the white star ornaments and press them firmly onto the grapevine wreath. Use floral wire to secure them in place if the glue isn’t sufficient.
Step 3: Add Accessories
Enhance the wreath’s beauty by adding clear gems and white foam balls or white berries. Apply a dab of hot glue to the backside of each and press firmly onto the grapevine wreath.
Step 4: Hang and Enjoy
Enjoy your beautiful new wreath!

Common Questions about DIY Winter Grapevine Wreaths
What can I put on a winter wreath?
A grapevine wreath makes a great base for a DIY winter wreath (and you can add some flocking spray to mute the dark woody vine color if you prefer). Then add:
Artificial greenery: Look for silvery foliage to match the winter vibes. Explore various types of artificial greenery available at craft stores to suit your taste and style. We recommend greenery like eucalyptus, olive leaves, frosted evergreen pine sprigs, or silver dollar greenery, or try lavender for a bit of muted color. White flowers or berries are a great addition, too.
Wintery white accessories: Browse the craft section of the dollar store or hit up the craft store (or your craft supply stash!) Look for anything white or sparkly – gemstones, cotton bolls, stars, snowflakes, bells, white pine cones, white yarn pompoms, etc. Scope out the Christmas ornament section to find fun ideas for this winter grapevine wreath, too.
Where else can I find affordable wreath materials besides Dollar Tree?
Craft stores like Michaels, Joann, and Hobby Lobby often carry similar materials. Additionally, you can explore online options for a wider selection.
How do I store the wreath when not in use?
To preserve its beauty, store the winter grapevine wreath in a cool, dry place, ideally in a plastic container to protect it from dust and damage.
Can a grapevine wreath be used outdoors?
A grapevine wreath like this will be fine hung on a front porch or front door as long as it’s covered from the worst of the winter weather. Don’t let the wreath get too wet, or it will not last as long. (Grapevine wreaths can last 5+ years!)
