With the lasting popularity of old-world décor, this grape arrangement will add class and color to an end table, dining table, pedestal, or architectural niche. You can use the same concept with different varieties of fruit, or add seasonal flowers or ribbons to change the look of the arrangement.

What You'll Need:

Directions:

  1. Trim the foam so that it fits into the container and use hot glue on the edges and underneath to attach it. The foam will bear a lot of weight, so it needs to be secure.
  2. Cover the foam with a light layer of moss, and secure it with floral pins.
  3. Unravel the grapevine wreath and separate it. You'll use only 1/4 or 1/2 of the grapevine. Press the ends of 2-4 lengths of grapevine into the foam, allow the vine to circle widely above the container, and secure the opposite end into the foam. Repeat this three times, alternating the direction of the grapevine to form a criss-cross pattern at the peak.
  4. One at a time, arrange the larger grape bunches and secure them into the foam with floral pins. Let them drape over the sides of the container all the way around. Vary the lengths that drape so that they do not form a straight line at the lowermost grape. To build up the layers, attach floral stakes to the stems of the grapes and secure the stakes into the foam.
  5. Snip the grapevine or ivy bush into pieces at the base that holds the bunch together. Tuck the individual stems into the arrangement and press the wire ends into the foam. Longer pieces can be wound up the natural grapevine.
  6. Attach the mini grape bunches to the natural grapevine with floral wire. The mini bunches should hang freely with the wires hidden between grapes. Tuck in a few more stems of vine for the finishing touch. Turn your arrangement around to assess how it looks from all angles. There should be no front or back to this piece. The overall shape should resemble an inverted pyramid.

I am making wine bottle lights but I can't get the grapes to stay on the bottle. I used a glue gun but it doesn't work.

Contact cement is very strong and will hold them. Hardware stores have it, or walmart in the hardware section.

Could you not wire them to the neck of the bottle using coated wire to match the bottle or the grapes? It looks like you could cover any showing wire with the flowers or even a colored electric tape to blend in.

I made 48 of these last Christmas. I used floral tape to hold the grapes on. I bent the stem of the grapes so it would hook on the bottle top then I wrapped floral tape around the top securing the grapes. I, also, wrapped the light wire securing it to the top of the bottle with floral tape. Hope this helps. Everyone will love their gift. Your example is just beautiful! Jean

Hi...these are really, really pretty and would be lovely for two "wine" people I know. Could someone post the directions or a site that has the directions?

Thank you so much...I know this is a busy time of the year.

perhaps I can assist you by suggesting tying the grapes onto your bottle with raffia. Can be bought at Walmart or craft stores...........tie each thing separately, then tie another piece of raffia around everything being carefully to work around grapes etc. then tie a beautiful bow and let it droop down.

I'm sending a sample of a birthday present that I made today for a bar light!!..........ludie

I have made several of these during the past few years and use floral wire to wrap around the neck of the bottle, attach grapes, etc., then tie several strands of raffia around all and tie a large bow or use a nice colored bow on top of the wire. I group three different colored bottles together for a nice impact.

I just use my glue gun to attach flowers, bows, etc. to wine bottles (glass). I guess you could also use rubber cement. Seems to work fine!
