Tutorial: Grapevine Wreath

Once the grapes are harvested, I love to find uses for the lovely shoots.

This fall wreath was quick to put together, looks great and adds a touch of fall.
Plus I know I can adjust the decor for seasons to come! Score!

What You Need-

  • Grapevine
  • Pruning Shears
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Decor of your choice!

To Make Wreath-

  1. Cut shoots post harvest. leave pleanty of buds for next year and remove only from vigorus areas
  2.  Remove any leaves and stems from the shoot
  3.  Twist shoots together, Working to tuck the ends into the loops of the other shoots
  4.  Continue to work shoot, twisting them into the wreath.  Add until desired thickness.

The green shoots are more malleable, they will become brown as they dry out.
I added some burlap and linen rosettes.
I found the tutorial from Pinterest
Secure with a hot glue gun, add cloth for a bow and hang!
