Adorn grapevine wreaths with botanicals

Use a grapevine wreath base to simplify DIY decor.

Beth Syphers of Crowley House Flower Farm in Rickreall, OR, taught her student Kaylean Martin how to create a lush harvest wreath with foraged greens and more.

“Making a wreath from scratch can be daunting, but if you start with a grapevine base and add twigs, moss, dried grasses and pods — anything you can clip from the garden, really — you will create something beautiful that is uniquely yours,” she says. The design incorporates juniper, sage, grasses, cones and bark from Crowley House Flower Farm and Sweet Posy Flower Farm (Bend, OR). © Crowley House Flower Farm Photography with permission
