I love wine and I love wreaths. Today's post combines both these passions..
We live in a wine growing area and all through winter the vines get clipped in preparation for spring.
Here an unclipped field.
And a perfectly clipped one
The clippings are left between the rows, to be collected at a later stage and then burned.
They may look like waste, but to me they are very exciting. When fresh, they are still supple enough to be bend into wreaths. I love making wreaths, it's easy, fun and it's FREE!
You start by picking a nice long thread, forming a circle.
you then weave the end above and under the circle
when the strand comes to an end, you tuck it into one of the loops. Start with a new strand by tucking the beginning into a loop as well
work in progress
You can make it as thick and big as you like, depending on it's further use. This one will be part of my easter decoration, so I kept on adding. It's not finished yet, but I'll stop by the next field when I have the time.
