Wait Until You See This DIY Wheat Wreath!

EASY FALL WREATH TUTORIAL WITH ONLY 4 MATERIALS

This DIY wheat wreath only took a couple of hours! It’s fun to make and will look great on your door this fall! The total cost was about $44 but you could make it even cheaper with dried foliage from your own yard!

SUPPLIES

BUNDLE

Once you’ve gathered all your materials, begin by creating small bundles of the dried foliage. For the wheat, about 6 pieces fit comfortably under each pin, Arrange this bundle where you’d like to place it and use the tidy pins to hold them in place against the start wreath base.

Make sure every piece of wheat is visible because we don’t want any pieces to go to waste or be hidden, when it could be helping to cover the pins and the straw. The objective of each of these bundles is to cover the straw base and the pins of the bundles before them.

WORK YOUR WAY AROUND

As you are pinning in place, you’ll need to cut down each bundle an inch or two below each pin. This makes the stems easier to hide. Once you get into a rhythm, working your way around the wreath will go fairly quickly.

MIND THE GAPS

Once you cover the front facing surface of the straw wreath base, you’ll want to fill in the spaces that you missed. This could be along the inner and outer edges or openings between the bundles are making pins and straw visible.

Cut the stems off the wheat and hot glue the heads in places that need to be hidden.
