How to Use Dried Flowers on Grapevine Wreaths


Dried flowers added to grapevine wreaths create floral displays for walls, doors and hallways. The type of flower and the filler material used determines the overall essence of the wreath. Delicate dried roses amid a bed of baby's breath and rich green foliage add a romantic touch, while bold sunflowers bring thoughts of sunny days. Before making a wreath with grapevines and dried flowers, consider the theme or message you wish to portray, and choose flowers and foliage accordingly. Choose one primary color along with one or two coordinating or contrasting colors.

Step 1

Place the grapevine wreath in front of you with the hanger at the top. Hot glue a bow to the top of the wreath before adding dried flowers, as it can be difficult to fit the bow to the wreath after flowers are added.

Step 2

Sort flowers by color and size, and place in individual piles.

Step 3

Glue the base of the foliage to the wreath. Beginning at the top near the bow, begin gluing foliage around the wreath. Tuck any stems under the edges of the bow when at the top.

Step 4

Select the primary flowers for your wreath. Space them evenly around the wreath. Six to eight primary flowers is sufficient, depending on the size. Adjust if necessary. Glue in place.

Step 5

Add smaller flowers in complementary or contrasting colors between the primary flowers. Form clusters of small flowers, if preferred.

Step 6

Tuck fillers, such as baby's breath or statice, at intervals to fill in blank areas. Step back and view the wreath from a distance to determine where to place filler.

Step 7

Add any embellishments or ornaments by tucking into the wreath and gluing in place.
