Completely outfitted with both binoculars and a whistle, I am more than happy to keep my poor husband company and take prompt and decision action to prevent further landscaping crises. Fortunately so, as I spotted him eyeing our creeping wild grape vines with garden shears in hand.
I find the look of the dried vine with its delicately curled tendrils so appealing and take care in trimming the vine to preserve the best of nature's sculpting, winding to feature the best pieces prominently.
Creating a grape vine wreath is truly very simple; an easy DIY Decor project that anyone with access to wild growing vines can quickly master. While I prefer using my own grape vines, one could certainly use any other type of vine, even Kudzu, to create wreaths of varying texture, even interweaving varies vine types in the same wreath.
- Cut long lengths of vine
- Remove any remaining leaves, taking care to protect tendrils
- Wrap in diameter slightly larger than ideal wreath size to allow for shrinkage during drying
- Tuck new vine pieces into existing wreath to increase fullness
- Secure with floral wire or other craft wire
- Dry two to three days, either indoors or outdoors in warmer climates
Decorating Vine Wreath
Supplies needed: floral or craft wire, garden shears, craft scissors
As desired: wire-edged or regular ribbon, silk or natural, dried flowers, pine boughs, craft supplies or paint
Adding decorative items to a grape vine wreath is simple and easy, as most items can easily be tucked within the layers of vine. Larger, heavier items may require use of simple wire wrapping to secure.
