Spring Tallow Berry Wreath Tutorial Video

You can watch the video to see how I made this wreath. I started with a 8″ grapevine base that I purchased at the dollar store. (You can make this wreath in any size, but you will need more tallow berry for this full look). The finished wreath is 11″ in diameter so that the berries will bring a lot of volume to your wreath size. This wreath took 4 bunches of tallow berry to complete

Once you have completed the wreath, you can either keep it simple or add ribbon.  If you do not want to add ribbon, you can add some wire to the back to hang the wreath.

Typically I wouldn’t say I like bows on wreaths, but I do love a good ribbon. For this wreath, I opted to use a mossy green ribbon to bring out the green in the wreath and also as a way to hang the wreath. To use the ribbon method, flip the wreath over and slip one end of the ribbon through the grapevine and then do the same with the other end.

I kept 3″ of ribbon at the top of the wreath, and made sure the streamers were even.  When you find the length you like, tie each side in a knot to hold the ribbon in place.  Then flip the wreath over and pull the ribbon streamers through the center of the wreath, finish the ribbon by cutting, folding the streamers in half, and cutting a triangle from the outside bottom edge to the top.  Then flip the wreath over and pull the ribbon streamers through the center of the wreath, finish the ribbon by cutting, folding the streamers in half, and cutting a triangle from the outside bottom edge to the top.

I also covered the back of the wreath with more reindeer moss. You could leave it, but covering the mechanics gives it a finished look. Also, if you decide to hang the wreath on a glass door or window where you would see both sides, you need to cover the mechanics. Here you can see what the finished back. Now I think it looks great from both sides.
