Things You'll Need
- Grapevine tree
- String of lights
- Ornaments and hooks
- Decor pieces, such as wired birds and ribbons
- Tree topper with conical-shaped base
Decorate the grapevine tree with mini string lights. Choose multi-colored lights for a vibrant look or lights in one hue, such as blue, white or green, to complement a particular color scheme. Start at the bottom and wrap the lights around the tree in a circular fashion until you reach the top. Nestle the light string into the vines for a secure fit. Wrap a small piece of wire, such as an ornament hook, at the points where the string starts and stops to secure the ends into place.
Wrap a tree garland around the tree, in between the string of lights. Use a garland made of faux pink or white feathers for a touch of glamour. Choose a traditional gold or silver tinsel garland to create a festive look. Secure the ends of the garland to the tree with small pieces of wire. .
Accent the tree with ornaments and other decor pieces. Attach colorful birds with wired feet to the tree to create a nature-inspired look. Hang mini ball-shaped ornaments in silver and gold, using wire hooks. Slide decorative ribbons through the vines and tie them into decorative bows.
Enhance the grapevine tree with a topper. Choose a small topper featuring a traditional conical-shaped base, which will fit securely over the top of the tree. Pick a shiny star, snowflake or angel-shaped topper for a classic style, a bird-shaped topper to complete a nature theme, or a snowman-inspired version to add a touch of whimsy.
