You may remember a project of mine where I created a heart wreath in my French Country Style Heart Wreath. My plan this time is to create one with grapevine and moss.
I started this project a few weeks ago, when I couldn’t find heart wreaths anywhere. Now of course, I’m seeing heart grapevine wreaths in craft stores and online in abundance. Go figure!
Well just in case you want to make your own heart wreath, I have an easy tutorial for your.
DIY Heart Moss Wreath
Here’s a short list of what you can use to make a heart moss wreath.
- grapevine twig garland
- naturally wrapped wire vine
- floral wire
- preserved moss
- wire cutters
- glue gun and stick glue
To create the wreath I’m using a two sections of a grapevine garland to form each side of the heart.
The naturally wrapped wire vine will help to define the heart shape and adds strength to the grapevine twigs. Use thin floral wire to hold the grapevine and wire vine together.
Next use hot glue to add small pieces of preserved moss on both sides of the wreath. I’m using the moss sparingly to give it a more delicate look, but you can add as much as you wish.
The last step is adding ribbon for hanging the wreath. I knotted each end of velvet ribbon then glued the knots to the wreath form.
Depending on how you want to use your heart wreath, you may want to add tiny flowers. You could create a little grouping of flowers or spread them out around the wreath.
I’m leaving this one plain with just the delicate looking moss, because I aways love decorating with natural greenery.
I’m loving how it looks on a bedroom doorknob, but I’m liking it even better on the shelf in the kitchen.
When the flowers fade I’ll still have this little heart wreath to bring in a hint of greenery. It’s leaning against an ironstone dish and shows up very well.
If you’re looking for more ways to use a heart shaped wreath, I have some suggestions for you.
- display it over a mirror
- hang it over an architectural ceiling tile
- glass door
- cabinet door
- bedroom door
- on a gallery wall
