I love big gorgeous wreaths but sometimes, unless you get a good deal, those big wreath forms can be quite pricey. Here’s a super easy way to take a smaller grapevine wreath and make it seem significantly bigger and better with this wreath DIY tutorial! I added small craft butterflies (Consumer Crafts has an AWESOME assortment!) to my final form but really, the options are limitless. You could even use this tutorial with pretty Autumn leaves garland in the fall!

Spring Butterfly Wreath DIY
Step One. Using the small grapevine wreath as a guide, coil the ivy garland around until it is approximately the same size as the outer edge of the wreath. Use 6 long pieces of floral wire evenly around to secure the garland. (You’ll need that long wire in the next step!)
Step Two. Use the long floral wire extensions to attach the garland to the grapevine wreath. As you can see in the picture below, they don’t have to be directly on top of each other since the leaves will overlap the wreath and make it seem larger.
Step Three. The final step is to decorate and embellish the wreath. I added some pretty Craft Butterflies all around but the options are absolutely limitless!
So, there you have it. What started out as a 12″ grapevine wreath ended up being over 20″ wide and perfect for a front door! That may not seem like a significant difference but there’s no way you would hang up a 12″ wreath door because it’s just way too small. Adding the garland totally makes it work though!
I know spring just barely arrived but I can’t wait to make a similar wreath with this gorgeous Autumn leaves garland! Or what about a white frosted garland for winter? There really are so many ways to customize and adjust this tutorial to fit any situation and decor. I’d love to hear some of the ways you plan on customizing it!
