How to Make a Grapevine Wreath, Hot Farm Boy Optional

I've wanted to make a Grapevine Wreath for a gazillion years, but for some reason, suspected it would be an intensive process that required years of foraging knowledge, a hiking expedition up Everest, a chainsaw, full body armour, and a baby pool. Oddly, none of those things are necessary.  As it turns out, all you actually need is large, strapping farm boy, a tree trimmer, and a few expletives.   I'm not sure how the above-mentioned correlates exactly to grapevines, but that's how I acquired mine.

Though only a few short months ago, it feels like eons since I've laid eyes on anything green. When fwaaaabaaaapppp! Just like being whacked in the face with a flacid pickle, a tiny sprig of life comes quickly to view, peeking out from under a thick blanket of snow.
