A wedding-themed grapevine wreath is an unexpected way to greet bridal shower guests or decorate a rehearsal dinner hall, and it's not difficult to make. When you incorporate specific wedding colours and flower selections as well as traditional wedding images you create a one-of-a-kind gift that will commemorate the special day.

  1. 1

    Match the theme and colour selections of a particular wedding couple. If you are making a generic wedding-themed wreath, use traditional white embellishments.

    Create a colourful backdrop and soften the hard edges of the grapevine wreath using a 1- or 2-inch-wide silk ribbon. Use white or a colour-coordinated ribbon and tack into place with hot glue. Allow the ribbon to drape loosely over and around the wreath.

    Make a bow to attach to the bottom of the wreath's arc using a length of ribbon and a matching piece of white netting. Fold the strips into a figure eight and secure in the middle with a piece of floral wire.

    Wire the bow onto the bottom of the wreath. Stick wire ends through the grapevine and twist in the back to secure.

  5. 5

    Attach a medium-sized wedding couple cake topper to the wreath so that it sits at the top of the wreath. Use three-dimensional scrapbook elements in the form of a tuxedo and wedding dress at the top for a more modern look.

  6. 6

    Tack small silk floral buds in white or colour coordinated to the wedding party colours over the entire grapevine wreath face. Twist floral buds with white netting to create a fuller bouquet look and hot glue in place.

    Mount decorative text onto heavy card stock. Words like "love," "faith," "I do" and the bride and groom's names and wedding date are good selections to print in a script font.

    Place a "Just Married" car image onto the right hand side of the wreath as a focal point. Use a three-dimensional scrapbook embellishment or make your own using heavy card stock.

  12. 12

    Add any specific wedding imagery used in a particular wedding to fill the wreath. For instance, if the wedding invitations incorporated butterflies, doves or religious imagery, reflect those things on the wreath.

Tips and warnings

  • Personalise your wedding wreath more by printing out small pictures of the wedding couple and mounting them to black foam core board. Dot the back with hot glue and attach to the wreath.
  • Don't get the colours wrong. If you are making a wreath for a gift be sure the wedding colours are confirmed before using them in your wreath decorations.
