The most important element when learning how to make a wreath is depth. The simplest way to achieve a deep, three-dimensional design is layering the wreaths you have on top of each other and then adding the other elements. Here’s how we get started:

  1. Lay the small grapevine wreath on top of the larger one
  2. Cut four pieces of wire and thread them between the two wreaths in equidistant locations
  3. Make sure the two wreaths are secured by twisting the wire closed
  4. Add your garland on top of the grapevine wreaths
  5. Attach it to the grapevine with the wire
  6. Glue your embellishments in strategic locations around the wreath
  7. Add the bow

Some people like to place their embellishments evenly around the edges of the wreath, but there are other ways you can decorate. We love placing the embellishments in one quarter of the wreath and balancing them out by placing the bow diagonally across from them. You can also decorate the top arch of the wreath with your embellishments and place the bow in the center of the bottom arch below them.

Experiment with placement before gluing anything to make sure you’re happy with how the final wreath will look!
