Making holiday decor is my favorite hobby. And this Mickey Christmas wreath is a fun new addition I made that I can’t wait to put on my door!
Mickey Christmas Wreath
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we LOVE making wreaths, ornaments, signs, and all the other Christmas decorations you can imagine. And bringing a bit of Disney to the holidays? Even better. So, when I came up with the idea to make this fun Mickey Christmas wreath from a grapevine wreath I had on hand? Perfection.
Basically, this is the wreath that all my neighbors are going to ask me where I got it. Everyone is going to smile when they see it. It’s basically the happiest wreath on earth. Ha! Grab your floral wire and let’s get started.

Tips to Make a Mickey Grapevine Wreath
- Start by grabbing a large grapevine wreath here. That will be the base for our whole wreath. But you’ll also need some smaller 4-inch grapevine wreaths like these. The smaller wreaths will be your ears.
- If you look at my wreath, you can see that the wires connecting the ears to the main wreath are basically invisible. That’s because I used this awesome wrapped floral wire that made the connections look seamless.
- One of the things I love best about working with floral wire is that you can easily and quickly remove whatever you’ve affixed with it and change it up. My plan is to have this cute Mickey grapevine wreath for Christmas then pull it down, adjust some things add a different color ribbon for spring!
How Do I Make this Mickey Christmas Wreath?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 1 12-inch Grapevine Wreath (Base)
- 2 4-inch Grapevine Wreath (Ears)
- 2-3 Sprigs Frosted Lambs Ear Leaves
- 1 Roll 3 - 4-inch Buffalo Check Ribbon
- 1-2 Sprigs Faux Holly Berries
- 1 Roll Rattan-Wrapped Floral Wire
- Needle Nose Wires/Wire Cutters
- Start by determining which side of the wreath you want to be the front of the wreath and which to be the back. There's need to overthink it, we just need to work knowing which is the front, so just pick.
- Place your ear wreaths on either side of the base wreath, positioning them about 6 to 8 inches apart. Take care to look at the placement of these pieces and make sure you like them. Using the rattan-wrapped floral wire, thread through the base grapevine wreath and one of the ear wreaths in several places to firmly affix them together, twisting the wire together on the back of the wreath snugly in the back.
- Attach your lambs ear leaves to the base wreath along the top and off to one side of the wreath, generally lining the area you want the floral bits to be. Use the rattan-wrapped wire to thread through the grapevine wreath in several places, twisted snugly in the back, to hold the lambs ear leaf elements on the front of the wreath.
- Add the berries to the front, layered on top of the lambs ear leaves, again affixing them in place with additional wire as desired.
- To make the bow, make 4 loops about 5-inches long and wrap a piece of wire around the center of the loops. Make 2 or 3 additional loops about 7 inches long with a tail or two and place this on the back of the smaller looped bow pieces. Wrap the wire around the center of the bow tightly and then affix the bow to the wreath and attach with the wire. Then hang and enjoy!
