Like most fruits, grapes are recognizable and are often depicted in art forms. You can make grapes out of paper for a child's art project, for something to hang on the wall or as an item to bring color to your house. Add construction-paper green leaves and coiled pipe cleaners for vines to add more depth to your grapes. Using a method called quilling, making paper grapes can be simple -- requiring only a few items.
Cut your construction paper into strips that are the same size and width. If you want large grapes, measure out a wider strip and if you want smaller grapes, measure out a narrower strip.
Hold a pencil and wrap your construction paper around it tightly. Wrap the paper around itself, so that it forms a circle. If you want a smaller wraparound, use a knitting hook or chopstick.
Glue the end of the paper to itself.
Slide the construction paper off the object you were using when the glue is dry.
Repeat Steps 1 and 2 in the previous section.
Hold the end of the construction paper to itself and slowly slide it off the object you were using.
Place this circle onto a flat surface so that it lays flat.
Release the end of the construction paper so that it expands a bit.
Glue the end of the construction paper to itself after you've let it expand.
