Quick and Easy Greenery Wreath
Save so much money by making this easy greenery wreath, that’ll look perfect for hanging anywhere! Beautiful wreaths can be so expensive, this one isn’t!!
Let’s be real… I am a huge huge huge fan of wreaths.
So much so, that I have a special something coming soon for all you people who are also lovers of wreaths!!
I will put them on a cabinet, the wall, doors.
I will put them on a window, table, or chairs.
I will put a wreath around candles, and outside, and inside.
I will put that wreath anywhere.
Despite the nature of a kitchen (greasy, crumby, dusty at the tops), I feel they need a wreath. Over the stove, or on the windows… somewhere as a touch of texture and warmth, and welcome. We did have a magnolia wreath on the cabinets above the stove, but moved it to be with the crib spring project.
After we painted the kitchen cabinets, the white space was hollering pretty loud for a wreath.
Have you priced wreaths? It’s insane, literally madness. $60 for cotton ones, $90 for magnolia ones, just stop it already. No one in their right mind (I’m assuming here…) will pay $60 for a wreath to deck their cabinet above a stove. So, I made a quick greenery wreath, in literally 5 minutes.

Materials for a quick and easy greenery wreath
greenery vines like boxwood, wisteria, magnolia, fern, but I used smilax garland, at Hobby Lobby
twist tie or pipe cleaner (I used the twist tie from the tag on the garland)
Here’s the secret… all you need to do to make this easy greenery wreath, is literally, lift the branches, tuck the leaves, and wrap the garland around the top of the grapevine wreath.
My garland, I’m not even sure how long it was, but made it around the grapevine form about 1 1/2 times (as you can tell, from the lopsided fluffy nature of this cute thing).
Once you hold it up, some pieces may droop, but you can just tuck ’em under a vine. I put my hook between the 2 cabinet doors and needed the twist tie to reach the hook, but otherwise, it’s ready to hang.
Are you rolling with laughter yet? I am, because I’m sure this has been done 10,000 times, but I loved how it turns out every time!
The total cost for my easy greenery wreath was a bank-account-busting $14.88.
$2.39 – grapevine wreath (regularly $3.99, this was 40% off)
$12.49 – garland ($24.99 originally, this was 50% off)
If you have a friend who is thinking about buying a $60 wreath to go in their kitchen, or anywhere else for that matter, please do them a favor, and bring them back. Reel them back in. Put their feet on the ground. Save your hard earned dollars, and just make the wreath.
Love it …and the bargain price, too. I am all about easy and inexpensive ~ yet polished ~ home decor crafts and this one is a home run. Off to pin!
I love this beyond words!!!!!!
Thank you love!!
I am totally doing this!! You had me at cheap, easy, and gorgeous!! 😀
Haha! I can’t wait to see what yours look like! They shall be glorious!
This is exactly what I needed… magnolia boxwood is like 85 bucks and I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. I’ve been fighting this battle for months and finally, I think I can do this!
Isn’t it crazy!? You can totally make your own! Some of the expensive ones don’t even look that good, so doing it yourself is great!!
Totally adorable Kim. I need to gather my supplies and make one this weekend.
The glamour needs a wreath! Take her on the road!! lol
I’m a big fan of wreaths too, and I love this one. An easy project that makes a big impact!
Thank you, Jann!
What size grapevine wreath did you use?
Hi Penny! I believe this was a 12″ form.
*I just measured, it’s a 12″ 🙂
