How To Make an Autumn Grapevine Wreath

How To Make an Autumn Grapevine Wreath

 

I remember late in the Spring when my husband was complaining about some grapevines taking over some of our trees in the woods.  I told him to pull them out and I would totally use them to make a wreath!  He didn’t think I was serious until he put a pile of them on our deck – and then I made what is pictured above.  🙂

Materials needed:

*Grapevines (or you can buy a plain grapevine wreath over on Amazon – but I think using your own if you have them is a lot more fun!)

*Acorns (I got these in my yard)

*Pinecones (I got these in my yard)

*Fake leaves and berries (I got these at the Dollar Tree)

*Gold Spray Paint

*Hot Glue Gun

*Twine

It is not a science to turn the tangled mess of grapevines into a wreath – it really just takes patience to shape and tuck the vines in until you get them in a circular pattern and it stays together. There was just a lot of experimenting and manipulating the vines into the correct shape and tucking in the ends so that it didn’t unravel.  I used 4 or 5 really long vines and intertwined them into each other.

As you can see in my initial wreath, it wasn’t perfectly circular, and a few of the vines were sticking out and I was not confident it would stay together.  So I pulled out my twine and decoratively tied it together in 7 different places. That gave it much better shape and it was really held together nicely with the twine.

I found these decorative leaf pins from Craft Geek that I wanted to somehow incorporate.  I decided to clue them on the twine for a small detail of fall leaf bling.  🙂

I wanted some more gold accents to match the leaf pins, so I spray painted the acorns and pinecones.  Plus some of my fake leaves from the Dollar Tree had some gold shimmer in them which matched nicely.

I then gathered all of the fake leaves, berries, acorns, pinecones, etc. and arranged them on my wreath – and then got out the glue gun to hold it all together!
