- Grapevine swag or several swags that you can string together depending on length you want around your door. Door tops are beautiful.
(Make your own) Cut a wreath in 1/2 & secure ends with zip ties to keep from unwinding or make a swag from grapevines they grow wild in New Jersey.
- 4 Rolls of 18in x 15ft mesh ribbon 2 rolls of each color I used 2 gold & 2 brown
- Bow, make or buy or buy 1 extra roll of above mesh ribbon and make your own
(I used burlap the was 9in x 15ft to make my own)
- Fall flowers, plastic pumpkins & gourds or fall swags
- 50-75 8-inch clear zip ties
Items Needed to secure grapevine swag to the door frame
- Sheetrock screws
- 20 8-inch clear zip ties
- Start out with a Grapevine swag and secure it with screws and zip ties to your door frame.
The swag works great as a base for holiday decorations.
2. Attach the 2 rolls of mesh ribbon together and secure them, in the middle of the top of the grapevine swag with a zip tie.
4. Beautiful just like this, however the more layers you add the more professional it looks.
5. Add a second layer. I used a 2nd Color. Use 2 rolls of mesh ribbon. Secure them together and fasten it to the middle of the top of the grapevine swag with a zip tie. Repeat what you did in Step 3, this time filling in the gaps, that the first ribbon missed.
6. You could stop there…..but why, the more the better….
7. Take your fall swag and secure it to the top middle of the grapevine swag with a zip tie. Weave the fall swag, on top of the mesh ribbon, securing where it needed with a zip tie. You can use individual floral sprigs of fall pumpkins, leaves etc., however tuck the stems into the grapevine wrath and zip tie them to the swag.
8. My little helpers for this project was Rachel my 21 year old disabled daughter, and our rescue dog Ben.
9. Place a bow that you made or bought in the center at the top of the door.
TIP–PLAN AHEAD, place the mesh ribbon layers in the order that you would take them down. Example: Hang the gold mesh ribbon 1st, as a base. When you remove the fall decorations, it is ready for Christmas decorations. An additional layer of red mesh ribbon, would look beautiful for fall and Christmas. (I used brown mesh ribbon in photos above)
