SWEET CHEEKS MAKES HER FIRST GRAPEVINE WREATH ALL BY HERSELF (almost) TUTORIAL

This beautiful little girl loves to GIVE.

AND she loves to craft.

She made this for her MOM for Fall.

She even did a little tutorial for you.

First you must take Papa's OLD OLD truck

and collect a load of grape vines.

We won't tell you where we found these 

because it might have been along a riverbank

on someone's abandoned property. 

We might, or might not have found a few

CAT TAILS, too!

Then you need to find one of those old plastic pots

that Nana brought a now dead rosebush home in.

This is how you get it started so that the center

stays nice and round.

Then you wrap it some more.



When you get tired of standing you sit down to wrap

MORE GRAPEVINE.


When you are ALL DONE you run to

SHOW PAPA

and he says it is THE BEST 

grapevine wreath he has ever seen!


Happy October 1st!

ps-Nana will show you the 

Annie Sloan paint project tomorrow.

She might, or might not have got

paint on the kitchen floor----shhhhhhh---

  4. She is growing up so fast Diana!! What a brilliant way to make a wreath round. Never in a million years would I have thought of doing that. Happy Tuesday and prayers for your friend from a few post below. xo

  6. Great job on the wreath, Sweet Cheeks. I know Mommy loves it!

  7. WOW- now that is totally well done!

    I have heard- not sure- that if one soaks the vines in a tub of warm water before starting it helps it's pliability in forming the circle a mite easier. Not certain. I have no abandoned grape vines to raid around here to give it a whirl.

    That wreath is really awesome. YAY!

  30. She did a great job on her grapevine wreath - but I know she had an excellent supervisor!! The only time I tried making my own, I got into poison ivy - didn't try that again.

  41. I love it when kids work on craft projects by using their imagination - they have so much fun along the way. I remember making things with colored construction paper when I was around her age. SweetCheek's grapevine wreath looks wonderful, and I would surely put it up in my home.

    Happy October!

    Love,

  42. No grapevines anywhere near where I live. I would have to drive a long, long way north...or south. But I loved seeing how it's done. I will remember this just in case I ever get some grapevines. Thank you Sweet Cheeks. You ARE the best! :)
