This easy DIY farmhouse style wreath is one of my favorites to make so I thought I would share my steps for creating it here with you today. A simple grapevine wreath is the perfect home accessory for every season.
A welcoming entrance is a must. Not just for guests but for you and your family. Even our small front porch gets dressed for the seasons.

After I finished the shed makeover I mentioned there were quite a few projects in there that I wanted to share with you all. My DIY farmhouse style wreath is one of those projects.
Our home style is more modern rustic than farmhouse. I knew though this wreath fell more into the farmhouse style so hence the title.
While I may not be a farmhouse style decorator, I sure can have wood plank walls (shiplap) because they are a texture style that works in many homes.
What you need to make this Farmhouse Style Wreath:
One of the best things about the grapevine wreath besides the lovely texture is the ability to reuse them. The peony wreath I made for summer and the natural spring wreath are both great examples of its versatility.
By weaving the greenery stems into the vines of the wreath there is no need for glue or wire to hold the stems in place. They wedge in nicely and stay until you want a new look. I have used this grapevine wreath for many years. They hold up well on porches also.
First I used the wire cutters and cut off all of the stems. Be sure to cut them all the way to the main branch in order for the stems to be as long as possible. This will allow you to use more of the stem to secure the greenery into place.
I like to cover the wreath about one third of the way around with the greenery. I work my way down in order to layer the stems. You can always fill in areas once you hold it up and see any spots that look thin. If you need to pull them out and start over. It really is that simple.
Before I had the shed makeover completed I hung my wreath in my foyer on the inside of my front door. I love to do this because it gives a pretty visual when I walk up and down my stairs.
I also love how the texture of the wreath looks against the white. That is a wonderful feature I have noticed a lot on the show Fixer Upper. Joanna is great with neutral decor and contrast, another one of the reasons I love her style.
I used the same door hanger and hung it over my vintage chalkboard I found at Miracle Hill Thrift Store for $5! SCORE!
There are times when you would rather purchase a wreath already to go! I found some that I love for you to check out.
