Over the years, I’ve had many, many requests for a wreath that can adorn your door for the winter months. When I’m decorating for Christmas, I like to use pops of red, and I don’t normally think ahead…but this year I did! Up today is a wreath that’s perfect for Christmas, yet it will also take you all the way through the winter months. Featured on this wreath are greenery, pinecones, and white berries. The greenery can be either fresh or faux, both make an equally beautiful wreath. The best part is that this wreath can be assembled in five easy steps. 

Step 1:

Gather your supplies. As always, I encourage you to check your stash, or collection of Christmas stems, to see if you have what you need. Many times, a wreath can be assembled using items you already have, and honestly, those are the best kind! I used two kinds of greenery. The cedar is faux, and is several years old. The boxwood was freshly cut from my yard.

Step 2:

An easy way to give your wreath more dimension, especially if the grapevine is thin, is to wire two wreaths together. I often use this trick so the items on my wreath stand out from the door. Simply wire two wreaths together with florist wire in four places. Snip the wire so the ends don’t stick out.

Step 3:

Place the first type of greenery on the outside edge of the wreath, beginning at about 4 o’clock and ending at 9 o’clock. Many of you have written to ask exactly how to stick floral stems into a grapevine wreath. The trick is to find a spot in the wreath where the stem can slip in several inches. When the stem is inserted deeply, there is no need for any wire or glue. Sometimes it takes a few tries, so be patient! Another advantage of layering two wreaths is that when stems are inserted, they are less likely to poke through the back of the wreath.

Step 4:

Insert the second type of greenery. Begin again at 4 o’clock, but continue the second type of greenery a little further than the first, to about 11 o’clock. Put this layer on the top of the grapevine wreath, making sure to generously fill in the whole space. 

Tip for using fresh greenery: when snipping branches to use in floral arrangements or on a wreath, make the cuts deep into the bush. This will give you room to clear the needles/leaves off a few inches at the bottom of the branch. This bare end is much easier to insert into the wreath, than one covered with needles or leaves. A deeper cut will also give you a stronger and longer branch.

Step 5:

Now it’s time to add the finishing touches and color. Cut apart 3 or 4 berry stems, and insert them into the greenery. Make sure to hold your wreath up so you can make sure that everything looks balanced. Wire on 4 or 5 pinecones between 6 o’clock and 8 o’clock. If desired, insert some sticks or branches along the bottom edge of the wreath. 

Five steps, and about 30 minutes. That’s all it takes to make an evergreen Christmas wreath that will take you from Thanksgiving, all the way to spring.

The last several days here in Ohio have been unseasonably warm, and it’s been hard to think about Christmas. I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon spent decorating our porch. It was like having the best of both worlds. I was outside in the warm, fresh air with Christmas music playing! 

Until next time…

    I was searching for ideas for a Winter wreath for my backdoor entrance; this is perfect and I have all supplies on hand! I plan to use pittosporum from my yard as well as mesquite branches! Thank you OSP😍

  5. Jeanie Nichols says:

    I love reading your blog and look forward to it each and every week.

  6. I absolutely love how you decorate. This wreath is beautiful. What colour is your front door? I’m wanting to paint mine something similar, inside and out. I get stuck on these decisions so your help would be most welcomed.


  7. Does the boxwood stay green for a long time? Do you need to mist it with water to keep from drying out? I’ve never used fresh boxwood in a wreath but I have boxwoods around my house. Now if I can get my husband to let me cut on them , I’m in business 😂.

    Ann, thank you for the clock references for placement of items on the wreath. I’ll remember that suggestion.

    1. Ann, it is so nice to have a “recipe” for a beautiful winter wreath that doesn’t have to be stored when Christmas is over! Although I love traditional holiday colors, I don’t love having to store SO MUCH that can only be used a few weeks of the year. Your wreath is a great decor item that works for months, not weeks! Win!!!
      Thanks again, I value your ideas!

    This is beautiful! I live a week wreath! What is the name of the color of your door? I have a blue door as well but it’s just not the right shade, I love the color of yours! It’s so hard to tell what it’s going to look like when you’re picking it out in the store.

  11. This is absolutely beautiful, Ann!! I’ve yet to try my hand at creating a wreath but I just may try this one. You make it look so easy… :-)

  12. Love your Christmas wreath! So pretty. I also love your bucket filled with pine cones on your doorstep. Everything is so beautiful! Thank you for all your wonderful ideas and tutorials!!

  13. Barbara Warner says:

    Loove that wreath, Ann, and we don’t need any red on it. The white and green theme will function well through March, and bring a burst of cheer to anyone looking at your door The theme speaks winter beauty and it looks wonderful. I can see it with snow laying on it already.
    Have a wonderful Christmas, albeit quiet???

  14. I love 💕 this wreath-I might make one and send it to my daughter!
