Grapevine Wreath from Scratch

I know you can usually buy grapevine wreaths fairly inexpensively, but there is just something about making something from things you can find in your own back yard. Wild grapevines can be found in the woods practically anywhere you live. I rescued these from the burn pile after helping some friends trim their grape arbor where we picked grapes last fall.

The first step in putting together the wreath is to find a relatively long vine and make a circle out of it.

Next, you want to wrap the parts that extend beyond the circle around the exisiting circle. You will probably have a little piece that sticks out, that's okay. You can catch it up under the next vine you add.

Take another vine and just wrap it around the existing circle. Continue to wrap vines until the wreath is the size you want you can make the wreath as large and as thick as you like. It's really pretty simple.

You can then decorate the wreath for any occasion or holiday. Look at this beautiful one my daughter and grand daughter made for Easter. I'm hoping to persuade them to make one for me and possibly I can take pictures and show you how they did it.
