Project

Harvest Centerpiece

A table arrangement of grains celebrates the bounty of fall. In addition to wheat, which symbolizes a fruitful life, this textured display includes other dried grasses (available at crafts stores), so it can be made weeks ahead. The final flourish? A luxurious satin bow.

Materials

  • 100 stalks (six bunches) of dried grass and wheat
  • Floral tape
  • Floral pruner
  • Wide ribbon

Steps

  1. Step 1

    To make each centerpiece, you'll need about a hundred stalks (six bunches) of dried grass and wheat.

  2. Step 2

    Hold between thumb and forefinger at an angle. Add bundles, in a spiral, until all are used.

  3. Step 3

    Wrap with floral tape (choose a color that matches your ribbon). Trim ends with floral pruner (cut center tips shorter for a stable base). Tie a wide ribbon over tape.
