You can find the mini grapevine wreaths at dollar stores, Michaels, JoAnn Crafts and Hobby Lobby.

The exact size of the wooden bead is difficult to say because it will depend on how large the grapevine wreath is that you use. Once you have sourced the mini wreaths, then choose a wood bead that is appropriate in size.
