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 grapevine wreaths.
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
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
When you are ALL DONE you run to
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---

your photo name

This is so cute...and this is making a grapevine wreath from scratch! I never would have thought to wind it around a pot. Papa looks so proud! :)

Oh my goodness how cute!! When I saw the thumbnail, I had to come over because I made my very first one yesterday, and it looks very similar! I posted it on my facebook page. Wish I had seen the tutorial though because it would have made it easier!!

That IS THE CUTEST GRAPEVINE WREATH EVER, Sweet Cheeks is amazing!
