How To Make A Grapevine Heart Wreath
Here’s a way to make a pretty DIY heart shaped wreath that’s so easy!
If you are having a hard time finding a heart shaped wreath form in the craft stores don’t worry…there’s an easy trick to making your own form!

Form Heart Shape
First, I cut a 60 inch piece ( 152.4 cm) of the grapevine garland with a pair of sharp shears.
I took the two ends of the grapevine and bent them down to form the top of the heart; then I secured them together by wrapping floral wire around tightly.
I squished the bottom of the grapevine together and wrapped it with the floral wire to form the point of the heart wreath.
The grapevine wreath wants to close on itself so I put a heavy board on top for a couple of hours to flatten it out.
Add The Flowers
Now it’s time for the flowers!
A heavy container kept the wreath flat while I was popping in the flowers. (it will hang up nicely at the end…you’ll see!!)
I was going for a simple, pretty look on this wreath using pink and white flowers and some dainty greenery. The flowers I had on hand from a bouquet I bought at Michael’s last Spring. Here are a couple of similar bouquet’s from their new Spring flower collection: Pink Rose & Peony bouquet or this Coral Hydrangea & Rose one. The pink rose bouquet has lamb’s ear in it too.
One bouquet has all the flowers you would need to make a wreath.
Next, I tucked in a white carnation on either side of the rose followed by a lamb’s ear leaf.
Ready To Hang Up!
I used the wire at the top of the heart to hang up the wreath.
It’s such a fresh pretty look…especially in January ( we can pretend it’s Spring, right??)
