On an old Gardeners Journal show, Kathy went to a downtown store that sold garden art. The owner had a beautiful display on the front walk, plus an alley converted to a shady garden area. Everything was so tastefully done and displayed, but what really caught my eye were these really large (4 ft) grapevine balls. One was covered with fleece vine. The other just an ornament.
Ive made many wreaths with grapevine, but never a huge open ball like that. Do you think they wrapped it around a giant balloon or something? If done freehand, how do you suppose the creator got it to retain such a nice round shape?
Anyone ever tried this? If so, would you pass on the secrets? Ive had trouble getting grapevine to keep a round wreath shape. Cant imagine making this huge ball and keeping it round.
