Picture of Harvest Wreath Made of Wheat Florets
main2.jpg

I saw a wreath for the first time in USA on someone's door, I loved it, however at the same time I saw a US flag hanging in the porch. I thought probably it is some sort of national day or event like 4th of July. Anyway later an American friend of mine told me the purpose of both the wreath & flag. And the funny thing is I pronounced wreath as 'Wrath' LOL

So that was my story of wreath enlightenment :D.

A few days before while driving to the countryside, I saw huge fields of wheat, shining in sun with their golden & green florets, oh!! dear, the view was so beautiful that I stopped my car and walked down in one of those fields to have a closer look. A few seconds later I heard a voice saying "Brother..If you want some, then pluck a few" in Hindi it was "Bhaiya agar chahiye hai to tod lo". That was the farmer who was very generous and gave me a big bunch of wheat florets.

Back home, the florets just lied in my balcony for few days and got dried to look even more golden, that moment I thought to make a wheat wreath. I googled and found a few pins on pinterest about wheat wreath but they were mostly for sale. And that's how I decided to make an ible for wreath.

In India, the wheat harvest season has just begun and interestingly wheat florets are used in Indian festival Holi for thanking & praying for better harvest the coming year. To my surprise it is not just India. I came across a Wikipedia link explaining what is a harvest wreath :).

Lets see how you can make this easy and beautiful harvest Wreath.

I don't know much about photography so I always end up taking tons of pics unless I get a decent one :D

You and me alike! I take a bunch of unlimited photos and delete the blurred pics. :-)

Thank you so much sunshiine :), this is my first ever wreath. My friend is very much pleased to know that the Idea of red is so much loved :)

I am sure your friend will enjoy it for years to come. My mom used to make wreaths using some type of wild plant. She always made things from what was lying around. I wished I had paid more attention LOL. Can't wait to see what is next?
