Today’s craft post is a little unusual, I must admit. It comes out of a season of experimentation with some of my favourite crafts. (Sometimes you just want to shake things up a bit! – or at least as much as a nerdy crafter can muster anyway 😉 ). Out of it emerged the idea of creating this minimal vintage floral wreath – but with a decided twist. A 3-in-1 twist, to be exact 😉 And I absolutely loved how this turned out.
~This DIY first appeared on the home & lifestyle blog, Pastels and Macarons ~
Although I love traditional wreath forms, I am a big admirer of wreaths that are uncommon and a little less ordinary in both shape and texture.
The inspiration for this particular wreath first started over at Making it in the Mountains. I loved how Kristi created a simple wreath using grapevine wire. I then decided to use this idea as a jumping-off point for creating this 3-ring wreath form that I’d already been contemplating.
So, if you’re up for something a little different, then I’ll show you how you can create this 3-in-1 minimal vintage floral wreath in just a few simple steps.

MATERIALS you’ll need to make this Minimal Vintage Floral Wreath
- Grapevine wire
- Wire clippers or precision pruning sheers (like these ones or this one)
- Flowers + Greenery
- Floral wire
STEPS to make this Minimal Vintage Floral Wreath
Step 1: Clip Off Grapevine
Clip off 1 strand of grapevine. Fold in half.
Tip: You will need about three times the length of (folded) grapevine to create the circumference of each circle.
Step 2: Create Loops
At the folded end of the grapevine, take the vine on the left and cross over the vine on the right.
Repeat one more time to create a secure loop.
Continue this process, creating loops along the way.
Make sure to bend the vine to create your ring.
Once you reach the end, thread the 2 tail ends through the first loop.
Bend the tail ends down in behind the head of the loop and then back up.
Repeat these steps to create two more rings.
Step 3: Attach the Rings
Using the tail ends of the grapevine, thread through the loops of the adjacent ring.
Twist the grapevine around the ring and back towards first ring, twisting downwards as you go along.
Step 4: Add Flowers
Taking floral wire, attach flowers and greenery to the wreath forms. (For a different look, hop on over to Pastels & Macarons, where my original post uses a completely different floral design).
Step 5: Hang Your Minimal Vintage Floral Wreath!
And remember, you can always separate each ring to create a more traditional front door wreath. Just be careful unraveling the grapevine as it may come off the wire.
I don’t know which version I like more!
This minimal vintage floral wreath DIY is easy to make. I’m so happy with the final results and love how versatile it is. When the rings are attached, they make a beautiful addition to the front door. Pulled apart, the individual wreaths can be hung anywhere – separately or even collectively – on a wall, front door, mirror, hanging off a ladder, or as part of a gallery wall.
The possibilities are endless!
Happy crafting 🙂
