Grape Vine Wreath
I wanted to get a wreath for my front door. After seeing the ungodly prices for wreaths at the store I decided to make my own. My parents orchard is plagued with wild grape vines. I untangled as many of them as I could and slowly wound the vines together while they were still supple. The end result was beautiful. I could not have bought a more beautiful wreath. The green parts will brown up and the vines will shrink a bit as it dries; but this is more or less how it will look when it is done. I have plans to tuck flowers and pine cones into it corresponding with the seasons.
