  • Secure the grapevine using either wire or a ziptie
  • Tuck in loose pieces of grapevine, continuing to create a circular nest shape. Break off the pieces of grapevine that are too stiff or thick to tuck in.
  • Add moss to create the bottom of the nest and add some color. Use dots of hot glue to secure if necessary.
