As you all know by now, Todd and I recently eloped! Our original plan for a destination wedding was thwarted because of COVID-19. After a some discussion we decided to have a small wedding with just us and the kids. Of course, we live in Vermont and our wedding attire was for warm weather, which meant we needed to get married ASAP! About 2 weeks prior to the event, we looked into venues and found one the was available, that was on the lake and had a gorgeous gazebo. There were obviously no plans for an extravagant affair, but being a DIYer I simply couldn’t have NOTHING to do for the wedding, so with the gazebo and its curtains in mind, I created a floral grapevine wreath to use as a curtain tie back.
I used the same florals as my bouquet to tie the color scheme together. The whole process, start to finish, to make two of these was about 10 minutes. When I say simple, I mean SIMPLE! But simple doesn’t mean plain. I just love the way these added a small pop of color and honestly, they just make me happy to look at.

DIY Wreath Tutorial
Florals (mine all came from Michaels)
Remove the stems from the florals and arrange on the wreath.
Do a test run to make sure you like the placement and look of the wreath.
Starting with the bottom layer, adhere the floral to the wreath with a hot glue gun.
Continue to layer in the florals, arranging them just the way you want them.
Once done, add a ribbon around the top so that you can hang.
My wreaths were only about 5″, so nice and small and acted perfectly as curtain tie backs. And since they were going on either side of the gazebo, I made them as mirror images of each other.
What do you think? Have you ever made a floral grapevine wreath?
I’ve used these same wreaths for my DIY Cotton Stem Wreaths! They’re inexpensive and easy to work with. I even have a couple more left, so who knows what I’ll make next.
