I wanted a neutral white wreath to hang in my kitchen. We’re in between holidays, so I wanted something simple. Well, it doesn’t get much simpler than the way I made this DIY wreath. If you can use a foam paint brush, you can make this wreath. The white washed wreath also makes a pretty base for flowers or other decorations you may want to add on.
How To Whitewash a Grapevine Wreath
- Grapevine Wreath (any size)
- White Chalk Paint
- Small Bowl or Cup (to mix paint)
- Foam Brush
- Paper Towels
- In a small bowl, mix a tablespoon of chalk paint with an equal amount of water.
- Dip the foam brush into the watered down chalk paint. Begin painting your grapevine wreath in small sections by applying paint to the wreath with the foam brush. Use a paper towel to gently wipe off excess paint to get the level of white wash you want.
*Be sure to wipe off the paint immediately after applying it to the wreath so it doesn’t have the chance to dry.
*Get in to paint hard-to-reach places by sticking the foam part of the brush in between the grapevine wreath’s branches.
- Allow the paint to dry completely. Once the wreath is dry, it is ready to hang or add embellishments (flowers, etc.)
