Dried Wheat Centerpiece for Fall

The natural elements and rich neutral shades of this beautiful centerpiece compliment each other gorgeously and highlight the beauty of Autumn. Use it to adorn your dining room table on Thanksgiving and throughout the fall season. 


One of the best things about this autumn decorating idea is how easy it is to make. For a busy Thanksgiving hostess worrying about meals or a homeowner in need of some festive decor that's sturdy and quick to display, this is the perfect go-to.

Supplies
  • 1 bundle of dried wheat or other dried grass
  • Large rubber band
  • Decorative ribbon
  • Scissors
Directions

Step 1: Cut the ends of the dried wheat to a desired length, keeping the wheat stalks the same length.  Wrap a rubber band around the wheat stalks about 3-4 inches up from the bottom.

 

 

Step 2: Secure a decorative ribbon around the wheat bundle, covering the rubber  band.  

 

 

Step 3: Stand the bundle upright and twist the bottom of the stocks in a clockwise position to fan them out so the bundle will stand securely on its own.

 

 

Step 4: Place the wheat bundle on the table and surround with small candles and branches of Fall leaves.
