Step by step process of how to make a DIY grape vine wedding arch. In this how to, we made everything from scratch. We made the steel arch and pulled the grape vines from the forest. For more information on this project and other projects we are doing, please visit www.BrittanyandJustinWedding.blogspot.com How to Make a Grape Vine Wedding Arch Final Steps The arch is finished!!! Sorry it took me a month to update this blog but it literally took me the entire month to finish the arch. It ended up being a lot of work for one person and I only had the weekends to finish it. Justin's back is pretty bad and he can not bend forward so this project became mine from a certain point on due to the sitting and bending involved. If you are attempting this at home, I would definitely recommend using sawhorses to raise your arch up to hip height. My back started to get sore while working on it. Weekend after weekend I continued to wrap the vines around the arch. I will post pictures in the order they were taken to finished so you can see how we progressed. I apologize ahead of time for all of the pictures. However, I wanted to show you the progress of the arch the best way I could. I basically continued to attach vines to vines and vines to metal until the thickness was where I wanted it to be and even. Once I got to a certain point I started to cut the vines long enough to cover the sides separately and the top separately. It made more use of the vines so that I would not run out and it helped the vines stay more consistent with thickness throughout the entire arch.

At least 6 in are going into the ground make sure it is stable. That is why you can see the sections at the bottom where there are not vines. The width at the top where the cascades are is around 7 ft. You can obviously make your arch the size you want it. We are going to have crystals hanging from it so we wanted it taller.
