I finally crossed an item off my craft bucket list! You know what I mean, those projects you keep meaning to get to that sound so fun, but they never seem to make it to the actual to do list.

Guess what I did?
I looked on Pinterest to try to make grapevine wreaths. You know, like the ones that you pay so much for at the craft store? I found a bunch of pretty ones but didn’t have much luck with the methods to make them. So I thought, “I can figure this out.” Here’s the result of my work.

You will need:

  • Cable ties (zip ties, I also use these to hold up my grapevines)
  • Hand pruners
  • Fresh grapevine trimmings (the long spindly ones work best)
  • Cookies

First I saved out the longest, skinniest vine to use at the end. I took one vine and coiled it into the smallest circle that I could, and held that in place with some zip ties.

I kept adding more vines by coiling them the same way that I did the first one, fastening everything together with the zip ties as I went.

Now is a good time to take a little break and eat the cookies!

When the wreath was as thick as I wanted it, I took the long, skinny vine I had saved and started wrapping it around the bundle in a spiral, like wrapping Christmas lights around a stair banister. It worked well to weave the ends into the wreath.

Step three in making grapevine wreath

Ta da!! You have a beautiful wreath. Just let it dry for a couple of weeks and then cut off the cable ties.
