DIY Organic Neutral Winter Wreath

This year, I've been inspired by a more neutral color palette for the holidays - think fresh and faux greens, eucalyptus, and wood tones. This Easy DIY wreath is filled with foraged organic materials making it incredibly affordable and perfect for the entire Winter Season!

Last year, my mom gave me a lot of her old wreaths for me to pull apart and use in new ways. Included was an assortment of jingle bells, and I KNEW I had to upcycle and incorporate them into my wreath this year!

Styling my front porch this year for Christmas feels extra special because I just gave our porch a makeover a few months ago complete with a stunning subtle stenciled floor! It's been quite a few years since we switched up the styling of our front porch for Christmas, so this is the perfect opportunity to bring in new ideas - including a full sized Christmas tree!

DIY Winter Grapevine Wreath with Bells


I pulled apart several old wreaths to make this beauty and I foraged for the rest of my materials! If you don't already have some greens to work with, worry not, I've linked a bunch of different options for a lush, full evergreen look! You can also look for old grapevine wreaths and materials at Thrift Stores!

How to Make it


1. For this asymmetrical style, arrange 2 evergreen picks or cuttings with the stems pointing toward one another in the bottom right area of your wreath. Secure them to your wreath with hot glue. Add in more evergreens depending upon how full you want your wreath to look.

2. Next, add in eucalyptus sprigs. I used a gold long leaf type I found here along with extra eucalyptus from my spring wooden bead wreath. I also found eucalyptus seed pods attached to an old garland and spray painted them black.

3. Add in any other materials you want to use - twigs, pine cones, cotton stems, seed pods. For my wreath, I clipped seed pods from some of the lilies in our flower beds along with twigs I found in our yard. Simply put a dot of glue on the end of each stem and insert into the wreath. Continue until the wreath is a full as you'd like.

Pro Tip: Stand back from your wreath from time to time to view the whole picture and make sure you are satisfied with the placement of everything. If there's any element you don't like, simple pull it out gently and re-glue!

4. Cut 2 pieces of velvet ribbon about 10-12 inches long, each. Attach as desired to the back of your wreath and trim the ends. I found this deep rust colored ribbon and I love how it compliments the golden eucalyptus leaves!

5. If using bells, hang them on twine or ribbon and tie them together, making sure the bells hang at different lengths. Attach to the back of your wreath. The bells I received from my mom were rusty and brown. I spray painted them gold on a cold morning (outside) and the paint immediately began to crackle - a very happy accident that left them looking vintage!

I hope you find some inspiration here to look at what décor you may already have and think about how you can use or arrange it differently this year! Have an old wreath that feels outdated? Try to reuse its materials in a new wreath for a budget friendly upgrade!

Ah!.. so much to like. Galvanized bow. So different and impactful. The Wreath! earthy, woodsy. The brown in the silks just makes it POP. The crackly gold of the bells. Could you do that a hundred times? Super! Like the 2 displays tight to the door. And I can't tell you how much more enjoyable this is because you reuse? I have said this for years... "if you have all the money to go out and buy all that new stuff, it is amazing. This is true decorating artistry,
