This wild Grapevine Rattle IS kind of wild and measures 12 x 5 inches. This branching vine had such cool hairy bark that I decided to leave a lot of it in place. It branches and bends and torques a bit. I like holding it from the handle end, and also nearer to the branching. I believe this wild vine is Muscadine grapes.
The four gourds create a nice chorus of sound. They are filled with popcorn and topped with a small Cedar dowels.
