This charming grapevine heart wreath was so fun to make.

I was planning to do this a year ago.

But I had a fight with the grapevine while I was unrolling it, and it whacked me in the face.

And, then it scratched my eyeball.

I ended up wearing an eye patch for about 5 days.

The key to not using the grapevine as a weapon on yourself…….

Soak it in water for 24 hours.

Then, you can make whatever you want without fear of going blind.

You can even skip the whole make your own grapevine heart DIY and just buy a pre-made grapevine shaped heart.

I will say that I like how organic and “un-perfect” the hearts that I made turned out.

The wreath is one of a kind and quite charming in it’s “un-perfect” shape.

  1. Soak the grapevine in a tub of water for 24 hours.
  2. I layered three hearts on top of one another. I did this because my grapevine garland was small and stacking three hearts on top of one another gave it more presence on the door.
  3. Started by cutting two pieces of garland approximately 40 inches long.
  4. Attached them together using floral wire about 3 inches from one end.
  5. Bring them up to form a curve at the top in the shape of a heart.
  6. Attach them together using the florist wire.
  7. Repeat this process two more times to form two additional hearts.
  8. Then, stack them on top of one another and attach the three together with florist wire.
  9. Place something heavy on them overnight to get the heart to lay flat on the surface.
  10. Once the heart is flat, wrap the colored twine of your choice around the bottom of the heart and at the top where the two curves meet.
  11. Hot glue the end to keep it from unraveling.
  12. Then, lay the velvet and metal garland along one side of the heart.
  13. Attach with florist wire as needed.
  14. Fill in with the faux pampas stems ( I used a few pieces from one stem of pampas), cherry blossoms, and purple hyacinth to give more dimensions.
  15. I only decorated one side of the heart and let the garland drape off the bottom, but it’s your creation so make it your own.
  16. I originally hot glued a looped piece of twine to the back of the heart as my hanger.
  17. But I ended up not using it as it took away from my wreath hanging on the door.
  18. I hung the wreath directly from a nail without needing a hanger.

Not only is this wreath perfect for Valentine’s Day, it would make a charming piece of decor hung in a girl’s bedroom.
