DIY Fall Wheat Sheaf Wreath

I’m finally getting there-decorating our home for my favorite season, Fall.  It also happens to be the busiest time of the year for me-wedding season!  I gravitate toward natural wreaths.  They’re beautiful, simple and can surprisingly be used year after year with care.  Over the weekend, we traveled outside of the city to the pumpkin patch.  Of course Kansas, is covered in wheat.  I wanted to integrate it’s beauty and simplicity in our home. I wanted to create a wheat sheaf wreath, similar to a centerpiece I saw on Martha Stewart Weddings a few years ago.
Gather your wheat bunch {found at a craft or home store} with a rubber band to hold the stems in place.
One layer at a time, cut to desired length with scissors.
Twist your stems to give a nice round, full, effect.  Trim any loose stems.
Using a wreath hanger, determine your desired height.
Secure by your rubber band, or if necessary, by using twine/string.
Add your ribbon.  I chose to coordinate mine with my mums…I think it will go beautiful with the green jarrahdale pumpkins I picked at the patch over the weekend.
Wouldn’t this make a beautiful entrance to a Fall wedding?
Time: 10 minutes

    This is such a cute, simple idea. I’m going to have to make one for our little cottage front door. :)
