Are you looking for a Simple Lavender Grapevine Wreath for your farmhouse front door? You’ve come to the right place! It does not get any easier than this! I found this grapevine wreath at my local thrift store believe it or not. Don’t buy new until you’ve checked your thrift shops! I have found so many grapevine wreaths when thrifting! Even if they have something on them, usually you can remove the decor and repurpose the wreath.

Step one: White wash your wreath

The first thing I want to do is give this wreath a white wash. I used white acrylic paint for this as you don’t need a special paint. Just add a bit to a paper plate or whatever palette that you’re using and use a chippy paint brush.

Load your brush with paint, then pounce it off on the clean parts of your plate or palette. Afterwards, just lightly brush over the entire surface of your grapevine wreath.

I love the look of this wreath much better now! What about you? If you prefer to keep it brown, then don’t add the paint. It’s your project.

Step two: Add your lavender to your wreath

Next, I’m going to be adding this lavender to the wreath. My favorite lavender comes from Walmart if you can believe it. I cut each twig off the main pick using my wire cutters.

Before I started adding them, I laid them where I thought they needed to go to get the positioning correct. Then I used hot glue to secure them under the vines, one at a time.

After you get one side finished, move to the other side.

Step three: Make and attach your bow

It’s almost looks like a partially balding head. Ha! Yes, I’m odd. After you have all your lavender added, make a bow using burlap. I chose a thick 6″ burlap for the base of mine, then used a 2.5″ polka dot burlap to continue the bow. Last I added the 1.5″ polka dot burlap ribbon to complete my bow.

I added that between the two lavender sections using the jute twine that I tied my bow, but I also added a bit of glue to the back of the bow.

What do you think? I think it looks great as is, but if you want to add a sign, let me show you how to do that.

Step four: Create a pallet wood sign

We work with reclaimed pallet wood quite a bit, so I grabbed a piece from our scrap pile. First, I sanded it down so the edges were not sharp with splinters. It was a bit too long, so I measured that off and cut a small piece off the end of it.

Once I got it the length I needed it, I gave it a nice white wash, too! Same paint brush and paint as with the wreath above. Next we need some words. I chose the word welcome, because a wreath usually goes on a front door. I cut the lettering and added it to my board using transfer tape.

Step five: Add the sign to your wreath

Now it’s ready to be attached to our wreath. First we need to add some wire to the back. I did this with my staple gun.

After I had the wire attached to the back of the board, I turned over my wreath and added the board to it using the wire to secure it.
