The Easiest DIY Wreath Ever

Believe it or not, my little blog here has existed for almost two years. Kinda crazy, right?! And in that time I’ve shared a LOT of easy DIY projects like my easy bakery sign or the milk and cream sign I made on an old window. I mean, we’re talking things you can do with almost no money and very little skill. Easy stuff, folks. Well today’s post may just take the cake for the easiest DIY I’ve ever done. Today I’m sharing the world’s easiest DIY wreath. This only takes about 10 minutes to put together and I bet you’ll be surprised to see how simple it was! Before we get going let me show you how the finished wreath looks:

Purdy, right?! I might be crazy, but I think this looks like something you’d pay big bucks for at Pier 1 or Pottery Barn. Ok, let’s get into how I made this in 10 minutes.

Before I get into the tutorial I have to tell you how I got the idea for this wreath. So I was in Michael’s the other day, as usual, and I was admiring all of their fall garlands. Most of them were a little too flashy for my style, but one of them in particular struck my fancy and I started thinking to myself how awesome it would be to have a fall wreath with the same design/flower combo. And then it hit me–why not turn this long garland into a wreath myself?! So I snatched it up, grabbed a grapevine wreath, and hurried home to make it happen.

The first step was cutting the garland to size to wrap all the way around the grapevine wreath one time. Thankfully it had this easy plastic chainlink design, so I just laid it over the wreath to measure how much length I needed and then I snipped it with a pair of scissors. EASY.

Next up I grabbed some wire and I made several little makeshift pins like this guy here to help secure the garland to the wreath. I simply laid the garland on top of the wreath, secured one of the pins in place over top, and then pulled it tight to the back of the wreath. Once I had it in place, I twisted the two sides of the wire together and got it nice and snug on the back. I did that in six places around the wreath.

Once I had the pins through the back side of the wreath I trimmed them all down with wire cutters so nothing was sticking out too long.

And that was literally it. No glue gun needed. No trimming tons of little greenery and floral stems. Nothing but the garland, a few pieces of wire, and a grapevine wreath. Done in minutes!

I wasn’t sure how this would turn out when I started, but I’m pretty happy with how it came together. And the fun part is that this wreath idea would literally work with just about any garland!

    Oh my goodness!! I love this so so much!! I have tried DIY wreaths before and they’ve turned out okay, but when it was all said and done they ended up being expensive to make. I’m excited to give this a try! Thank you for sharing!

    Very pretty! I agree that it would look great year around. If you did want to change it up a bit for different seasons, you could add in some of those inexpensive floral picks (I buy mine at Hobby Lobby, on sale of course, usually in the seasonal area, but Michaels may have them as well). They can just be tucked into the grapevine wreath in between the flowers. I used to have a giant grapevine and greenery wreath in my home and that is how I changed it up for the seasons. Something like berries, tiny ornaments, fall leaves, etc. But it is beautiful as is! I will definitely look at garlands in a new way. Those pre-made wreaths can be super expensive!

    Beautiful, and paired with the white pumpkins gives it a fall look. Not all fall decor has to be orange and black.

    […] I know I say this every time I post anything with our reading nook, but gosh I love this spot so darn much. I actually sit in there all the time to work or watch TV. It’s easily one of my all-time favorite projects we have ever done. You can see how we transformed this empty space into a cozy nook in this post. And if you’re curious about that purdy wreath you can see how I made it in this post. […]
