How to make a beautiful Wheat Sheaf fall wreath – in minutes! This wreath is classic and timeless!
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.
A sheaf is a large number of stalks and ears of a grass or plant material bound together, usually after reaping. Not to be confused with Toronto’s oldest bar, the wheat sheaf is a quintessential sign of fall.
Natural wheat is a beautiful way to bring the outdoors in for fall – that you can use year after year! Dried wheat makes beautiful natural fall decor and holds up incredibly well. In fact, I’ve had a lot of our wheat decor for over 10 years!
Wheat Sheaf Fall Wreath
It’s rather simple to make and can be used indoors and out! A wheat sheaf makes the perfect fall centerpiece for your dining or coffee table or a beautiful fall wreath!
You can make your own in minutes! It’s so easy! I love that you can update it using your favorite ribbon. You can find wheat on a field, craft or home store. You can also get a bunch online!
Wheat Sheaf Fall Centerpiece
It can be easily adapted into a wheat sheaf fall centerpiece, too!
To adapt this for a centerpiece, finish by trimming the bottom of the stems evenly. Keep playing around with it…you may have to adjust and twist a few times until it becomes stable.

- Secure with rubber band.

- Using a wreat hanger, determine your height. Secure onto wreath hanger using the rubber band. If necessary, you can use twine or wire.
- Add a ribbon.
Add your ribbon and you have a beautiful wheat sheaf wreath! 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?
