This is Kristen today and I wanted to share my easy grapevine Christmas wreath with you today.
This is a pretty quick, easy project, and I would say inexpensive as well.
To make the wreath, I used a simple grapevine wreath, I think mine is about 13-14 inches around, and you can see, it's imperfect- which makes me smile. You can chose a more perfect wreath for yourself if you'd like.
To make the central part of the wreath, I used a Journal Spot from St. Nick cutouts. First I glued it to a stiff piece of scrap chipboard- this is where those pieces from used up note pads come in. Then I cut it out along the border.
Next I layered in another piece cut from the St. Nick cutouts, a circle matted with red scallops, some holly leaves, buttons with gems, and a rubon Santa that I fussy cut and popdotted. The greeting is also a rubon.
For the holly and berries, the berries are a craft store find that I cut into smaller bits, evenly spaced them around the wreath and glued them on. The leaves I handcut out- with out a pattern, so they were imperfect as well. This would be even easier using diecut or punched holly leaves. I also glued these leaves on, interspersing them between the berries and leaving spaces to show off the grapevine.
To finish the wreath, I looped my ribbon three times, and knotted it with black twine, adding a large and 2 medium flowers then topping with a button.
