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 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 made my grapes out of marbles then paint them hot glue works great
How can I attach grapes to wine bottles?

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!
I am looking for instructions on how to make grape clusters, without jump rings. I need to find written instructions with pictures.I don't do well with video tutorials. If anyone could help me I would be greatful.
Here are a few tutorials that might help you out:
I hope these are the types of tutorial that you're asking for. Good luck and there are many more out there online. I just tried to find the ones with pictures for you to make it easier to follow.
Your best bet is to go to a craft store line Michaels. You have to buy the supplies anyway. You may be lucky enough to find an employee to help you or they may have a class coming up. Be sure to bring the photo so they know what you want.
