DIY Color Wrapped Wheat (Fall Decor):
It’s a simple and easy project, but it’s a beautiful way to add interest and a splash of color to your Thanksgiving table. And don’t worry, even if you’re not hosting the holiday feast, you can still whip up a few of these to decorate your space.
I used mine in a bunch as a centerpiece on my dining room table. It’s beautiful, right? A touch of tradition with a modern and colorful twist.
I also shortened a few of the bunches to decorate place settings.
It’s a pretty way to tie everything together.
These could even double as place cards by attaching a tag to them with your guest’s name.
And, if you’re willing to give them up, your guests could take them home as a little favor.
Let me show you how easy they are to make.
How to Make this DIY Wrapped Color Week:
For this project, you will need dried wheat stalks, embroidery floss (in any color you’d like), and a pair of scissors. Yep, that’s it.
You can buy dried wheat stalks HERE or HERE.
You will want to start off with a few stalks of wheat. I prefer sticking with an odd number so I made some with five stalks and some with seven stalks.
Bunch the wheat together near the top, wrap around once with the embroidery floss, and tie a knot to hold everything in place.
Then, start to wrap the embroidery floss around the stalks. I found it easiest to spin the wheat to wrap the floss rather than spinning my hand around the wheat.
Cover about 2 inches of the stalks with the floss and then tie another knot to hold everything in place.
If you’re putting them in a vase like I did here, you can trim the bottom of the stems so they are all the same length.
I like using a clear glass vase because the wheat is so pretty on its own. (You can check out how I made the gold and burlap runner here.)
To use the wrapped wheat on my place settings, I just trimmed the stalks so they’re really short.
The wheat would also look great tied on a package or a gift. Another possibility is to tuck one or two in a live flower arrangement for a little touch of harvest.
That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed this simple, yet beautiful DIY.
