Grapevine wreaths can be so very easy to decorate with for most holidays.
This Grapevine and Winterberry Noel Wreath was also easy to put together.
Early this fall I created a few grapevine wreaths from those growing up in the trees nearby. They’re easy to make and they’re free. Yay!
I’ve been having lots of fun decorating with Winterberry or Michigan Holly which grows in wetlands. I love their vivid red color. They really add a colorful pop to all the greenery and pine cones in a woodland decor. If you don’t have access to Winterberry, beautiful faux berry stems can be found at craft stores and Christmas shops.
Here’s how I created the Noel Burlap Banner.
- Using a burlap ribbon, I picked up this one with a coupon at Michael’s some time ago, I cut it to length and trimmed the ends with a V snip.
- Next I took some jute and tied each end of the banner. I left long tails on the jute to tie it to the wreath when it was finished.
- Then I made a template, free-handing my lettering, with a bright colored Sharpie marker.
- Laying the burlap ribbon over the template, I taped it to the template so it would be secure.
- Using a black Sharpie marker, I traced over the bright letters which I could see through the mesh of the burlap ribbon.
- I was a little anxious that this would work, but if you draw slowly, it comes out beautifully.
Bunches of Winterberry were tied up and attached to the grapevine wreath.
The banner was then tied on to the wreath over some of the Winterberry stems.
And that’s it!
A simple woodland grapevine and winterberry Noel wreath to place where you wish.
The First Noel is one of my favorite Christmas songs…
The first Noel the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepards in fields as they lay:
In fields where they lay a keeping their sheep
On a cold winter’s night that was so deep.
Noel Noel Noel Noel
Born is the King of Israel.
Noel is a French word originating from Latin meaning birthday. So when you see the word Noel…think…Happy Birthday Jesus!
p.s. I’m thinking of changing the banner out for January. Any ideas (word) for a winter theme?
