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.

Step 1: Stuff you need

You would need:

  1. Lots of dried wheat florets.
  2. A piece of card board.
  3. A scissor or cutter.
  4. Something to draw a cricle like a dinner plate or geometrical compass.
  5. A pencil.
  6. A small piece of string to make a hanger loop (I have a small piece of paracord).
  7. Craft glue or white glue, the first picture shows craft glue but then later I used wood glue, the thick consistency of wood glue helps the florets to remain in place. I did not want to use hot glue, that would be required in large quantities.
  8. Optional Golden Spray paint.
<p>Amazing :)</p>
