    Holiday Wreaths from Our Grapevine

    My Husband and I have fun every year making grapevine wreaths from a grapevine we grow in our garden. We cut and form the vine into the size wreath we want and then embellish them with fun ornaments and Christmas decorations. We like themes so we come up with ideas that we both like. We enjoy this special time together!

    They are all beautiful! What fun to do this with your husband! Do you give them as gifts, sell them or keep them? They would make great gifts!

    They are so cute! I love the food one & the candy one. My husbnd's aunt & uncle had grape vines & made a beautiful tree out of them for their house one year. They neglected to do any measuring & it was too big to fit through any of their doors! Every year it sits on their patio & we all still get a kick out of it!

    I liked them all, but thought numbers 3, 6 and 7 were really good.

    Beautiful wreaths. We have wild grapevines and one year I soaked them in the bathtub - What a mess - To soften them up. I ended up throwing them away and just bought them at Walmart and Michaels.

    They are wonderful!!!!!!!! And what a great hobby. Bet you're on the lookout all year long for treasures to put on your wreaths - garage sales etc. What fun!!!!!!!

    Thanks Everyone! We have fun with them! I used to soak them too and found it's messy, also and a waste of time! We cut them and form them right away, and let them sit for about a week, then they are ready to be decorated.

    I love the idea of 'theme' wreaths ... these are too cute. I like your use of the grape vines. My MIL used to weave baskets and all of her handles were grape vines from their lake place.

    I've been cleaning out around my mom's old place and I'm fighting grape vines that go all the way up to the top of the trees and then jump to another tree and are at least 1" in diameter. Tarzan would love these grape vinee!

    This grape vine (which was allegedly torn down 30 years ago) follows the trees and fences half way up the block and has taken root here and there and some of the 'feelers' are 4" in diameter. They are definitely hard to kill!

    Those are gorgeous wreaths!! Wow, I just love them, but I am amazed that your husband helps you with them!! He must be an artist/creator at heart. What a great team you two make.
