A Painted Grapevine and Pom-Pom Swag

I found this little grapevine swag one day at a thrift store for a buck and couldn’t help but bring it home.  I really didn’t have anything particular in mind for it but I knew I liked its shape and lines.grapevine swag before it was paintedAs much as I love the look of natural grapevine, once I found a use for it, I knew it needed a little paint. (I know… shocker!) painting grape vines with white Annie Sloan Chalk PaintI dry brushed on some Annie Sloan Chalk paint in Pure White, enough to cover most of the piece but not all.  (directions for dry brushing…grape vines painted whiteThe softness of the white looked so pretty with the natural colour of the vines peaking through so I was really glad I hadn’t just slapped the paint on and covered it all.  white yarn pom pomsOnce it was painted, I made some yarn pom-poms to hang from the bottom of the swag.  white pom poms and painted grape vineTo secure them, I tied longer pieces of the yarn around each pom-pom and then around the bottom of the grapevines.  painted grape vine swag with hanging pom pomsgrape vine swag with hanging pom pomsThe painted grapevine swag turned out to be the perfect piece to hang the soft pom-poms from while creating a whimsical decoration for the wall.

I have 10 lovely thoughts, I'd love to hear yours

  1. This is so beautiful Lisa. You were lucky to find it like that at the store, I will have to go out into the wild and look for branches to bend.. or even snap (oh no ) to get that look. I love what you did with it and would be happy if you’d share it with us at our new link party Sweet Inspiration. It runs Friday till Tuesday.

    1. Isn’t it wonderful when you can find something so pretty and already made 🙂 (and for soo cheap too!) I will definitely head over and check out the party Mary. Thanks for letting me know and have a wonderful week! Hugs, Lisa

  2. This is so cool! I love it! I wish I was a crafter. I never think of things like this. I’m glad I found you on the Create Link Inspire Linky! I’m following you now on Pinterest (jody53) and Instagram. You have a very nice blog.

  3. What a fun, creative idea Lisa! I adore the little pom poms!
    Thank you for sharing this week at Brag About It link party on VMG206 (Mondays at Midnight). I plan to feature you next week!
