Grapevine Wreaths for the Kitchen

Welcome back!  A few weeks ago I promised to share the details for the grapevine wreaths on my kitchen cabinets.  

They are easy to make, you just make a circle and start twisting them together.  If you'd like to see how to get them started, click HERE for the post I did last Spring.  




The weather was warmer when I started them and, you'll notice that some of the vines are still green.  That makes it much easier to bend and wrap them.  Be aware though, that those vines will shrink a bit as they dry and you may need to add more to them later on.  Since they grow wild around here that's no problem.

To hang them on the cabinets, I measured a length of fishing line and looped it through the wreath.  I tied a knot and used a lighter to burn the ends.  That keeps the fishing line from slipping. Once that was done, the fishing line was hung on the inside, top of the door on a pushpin. I like this method, because it's invisible and only requires one small hole.  That other hole in the picture...I have no idea how it got there!
Now, I was ready to decorate.  I found this bunch of cotton bolls at Michael's on sale.
I cut it apart:
The stem was thrown away and everything else was used to decorate the wreaths.  Starting at the top, one cotton boll was poked through the wreath and a pod was added to each side.

Then six more were added at the bottom in two clusters of three.  I made a bow and wired it to the wreath.
The same process was repeated on the other cabinet door and this project was done in no time at all.  The only thing that was wired to the wreath was the bow.  After Thanksgiving, I plan to remove it all and decorate them for Christmas.  Not using glue will make it a lot easier!
Have a great week everyone.  Are you ready for the Trick or Treaters next week?



I hope you'll pin, share, comment, and follow.  If you click on those 3 little lines at the top right of the blog, you'll see where to find me...or click on 'share'.

  1. Very pretty! I've never made one, but have always thought about it. Although, I've never seen the grapevines growing in my neck of the woods.
