Try experimenting with different arrangements to figure out what works best for you! Grapevine wreaths also work well with cocktail parasols–you could even leave a portion of the grapevine exposed for a slightly different look.

Sometimes the most classic designs are the most simple. For this wreath, all you’ll need are a couple of hydrangea blossoms, a bit of ribbon and a grapevine wreath form.

This unique wreath is lovely in its simplicity. Its charm is in the variety of textures of ruffled flowers in muted springtime colors.

For a more delicate springtime wreath, try cherry blossoms or any other basic floral stem. Simply start with a grapevine wreath, a hot glue gun and your favorite artificial blooms.
