Summer is the season of outdoor fun and fresh fruits. What better way to celebrate this wonderful time of the year than with a DIY watermelon wreath? DIY wreath making is fun and rewarding, it’s a perfect way to showcase your creative talent while adding a touch of personalization to your home decor. In this step-by-step guide, I’ll show you how to make a beautiful grapevine watermelon wreath that will add a pop of color and whimsy to your front door or any space in your home. So let’s get started!
- Grapevine Wreath
- Artificial Greenery (If you need help choosing the perfect greenery, you can get my free guidebook here)
- Faux Focal Flowers: I used red geraniums.
- Filler Flowers: I used mini white daisies.
- Watermelon Sign (optional)
- Wired Ribbon for Bow or Pre-made Bow. You can find the watermelon ribbon in my Etsy shop here.
Step By Step Instructions
- Gather Supplies
- Attach the sign (optional). I like to place it diagonally opposite the bow. For example, if my bow is going to be at 7:00, I will place my sign around 1:00. This helps to balance the design.
- Attach the bow diagonally from the sign where it feels visually balanced.
- Green the wreath. Start on either side of the bow and work outward to the desired amount.
- Add focal flowers.
- Add filler flowers.
- Add additional greenery, filling holes as needed.
- Trim bow tails.
