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.
