I enjoy fresh, fragrant pine wreaths, but I hate that I have to toss them after the holidays. I much prefer to craft a wreath that can pretty up my home year round. And I’m not alone. Many of my loved ones have wreaths concocted from all sorts of materials on permanent display in their houses and apartments. Wreaths denote a warm and loving home and, made out of rustic grapevines, make wonderful all-season hostess or housewarming gifts for wine enthusiasts. Ask a local winery to set aside some grapevines for you during their annual harvest, and quickly whip up a few wreaths for friends and family. If you find yourself with a surplus, dried fines make wonderful kindling for a fire.
