Wheat Garland

Even the smallest garlands can make a big impression. This one does it with a minimum of materials and easy assembly techniques.

Note: Our garland is 50 inches long, and uses two to three bunches of dried wheat. Check craft supply shops for wheat.

1. Cut sisal twin the desired length of the garland and add 12 inches for a hanging loop. Make a 6-inch loop at one end; knot loop to make hanger.

2. Using florist's wire, wrap 12 shafts of wheat together just below the wheat heads; trim stems so bundles measure 5 inches long.

3. Wire bundles to twine, spacing them about 1-1/2 inches apart. Hang garland, then wrap with ribbon.
