DIY Wheat Bundle

wb-100

Looking for last minute ways to make your Thanksgiving table pop this season? A wheat bundle is an easy way to add a harvest feel to your home decor for the holidays.  I’m going to show you a way that doesn’t require a large amount of wheat by using a foam cone as the center!

You can make them large or small depending on the size of the foam cone and the length of your wheat stems.

Supplies needed to make this project:

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam: Cone, 12″
  • 2 Wheat Bundles (you can find these in the floral section at the craft store)
  • Jute Twine
  • Burlap Ribbon
  • Satin Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Low-Temp Glue Gun & Glue

Instructions:

Separate wheat stems into sizes. If your cone is too long for your stems, cut a few inches off the top using a serrated knife.

Glue a single layer of wheat stems around the foam cone, lining them up next to each other side by side. Make sure your wheat puff ends are even and similar in size.

As a second layer to help fill in gaps and holes with smaller wheat stems until they are smooth and even going around the foam.

Trim the bottom of the wheat against the foam with sharp scissors. Bind the wheat with twine for extra security and cover with a piece of burlap fabric.

Then, tie a satin ribbon around the burlap to match your decor.
