With Christmas over and the decorations packed away for another year, my attention turned toward creating a new wreath I could display year round on my door.
Last fall, I inherited some gorgeous artificial miniature grape clusters from a friend. She didn’t have plans to use them and graciously passed them on to me. She also passed on some artificial grape leaf vines as well.
I originally had planned to use an actual grape vine wreath as my base, but when I ran across this wire frame at the dollar store, I decided to give it a try. I wove the leafy vines around it attaching them here and there with wire. Once I was satisfied with the fullness, then I added the tiny grape clusters. The wire base made the wreath much lighter and it was not too thick to place between my front door and the storm door.
I had some vines and grapes still left so I wired them together to create some pretty swags to decorate the tops of my bookshelves.
There were still some sprigs left and I just couldn’t stop. I wired on the grape clusters and poked them in between wine themed items on my display shelf.
The greenery adds such a nice warm touch to my living room. Care to join me for a glass of wine?
