I know, I know, it’s early. But it seems that fall is everywhere right now, including on the thermometer in our area. So it’s time to add some fall decor with this diy wreath made from a grapevine wreath and some “berries”.
The other day while shopping for wedding supplies, I came across this grapevine wreath. I knew it would be the base of an early fall wreath filled with berries.
It’s quirky shape doesn’t allow for too much decoration, so a couple of clusters of “berries” from the dollar store is all I added. There is something to be said for a bunch of styrofoam berries attached to some covered wire at the incredible price of $1.25.
I chose the red berries because this wreath is going to be hung in the kitchen where the accent colour is a rusty red. Adding the orange was a way of bringing a more autumnal feel to the wreath.
Start by clipping small pieces from the stem of berries. This is really simple because they are all attached in little clusters. Tuck the pieces into the grapevine, following the path of the vine. Since this wreath had a rustic look with pieces of vine sticking out of it, I copied that by adding vines along those strands.
Continue with the orange berries, using a glue gun if necessary. But by twisting the thin wire around the grapevine tendrils, I was able to avoid using a glue gun on this piece. That will make re-using it easier.
Secured to this old orchard ladder in a corner of the kitchen, my new diy fall wreath adds just a hint of the season to come.
