When I was younger I remember making this candy cane wreath with the family and thinking that it was the coolest thing ever! We wrapped a wreath form in ivory ribbon and then hot glued a bunch of those mini candy canes all around it. Vicki has always done crafts around the house ever since I could remember, and even years later I still remember that fun wreath we all did together!
This year we decided to make our very own wreaths again. I had a couple floral stems I wanted to use in mind but needed something else to go with them. So Vicki and I ran to Hobby Lobby to see what would speak to us!
I knew I wanted to use a grapevine wreath form again since I previously used one for my Fall Sweater Pumpkin Wreath and really loved it. My idea was to use lambs ear and red berries together, but wasn’t sure how I wanted to put them on the wreath.

Here is all you will need to make the same wreath:
- Lambs ear (3)
- Red Berries (4)
- Grapevine Wreath
- ‘Noel’ bookpage sign
- Hot glue gun
- Wire or String (to pull together your bow)
We began by cutting the lambs ear stems shorter so they would tuck easier (you will need a wire cutter for this). Then begin tucking it into the grapevine on one side. I didn’t glue anything since they stayed nicely just by tucking.
After the lambs ear was tucked on the side of the wreath I began adding the red berries. Starting from the bottom, I integrated the berries by again tucking into the wreath form. I pulled some lambs ear leaves around the berries so they were intertwined and more natural looking.
Next we decided to make a beautiful bow out of ivory ribbon. This was something Vicki already had on hand.
And to top the wreath off-the pretty book page and glitter ‘Noel’ was hot glued on top of the ribbon!
Oh I am so thrilled with this wreath! It matches perfectly with my farmhouse style of decor I have in my rental. It was also very simple and easy to make, if you can cut and tuck then you can do this!
I love the texture and frostiness of the lambs ear, and the neutralness of the ivory and Noel piece. Yet that pop of red berries fits in with the rest of my Christmas decor. I like to have red for the holiday season, but I pair it with neutral champagnes, whites and browns.
And this is just one of many holiday wreaths you can make yourself! Have fun hopping around to the rest of our blogger friend’s holiday wreaths. (See all the links below)
