Wheat bundles are a lovely and versatile Autumn decor item. The symbol of a bountiful harvest and the simple goodness of life can be incorporated into many of your favorite Fall decorations. Wheat bundles can be purchased for only pennies a unit at craft stores, discount department stores and even dollar stores that carry seasonal craft items. I purchased a large package of individual wheat bundles from my local craft store several years ago for only a few dollars, and every year I find new ways to use them in my Fall decor. Here are several ways to incorporate wheat bundles into your warm and cozy Fall decor.
Add Wheat Bundles To Your Fall Bouquets.
Whether you love to dress up your Autumn table with a gathering of mums, sunflowers or marigolds, adding a few wheat bundles to the arrangement will enhance the seasonal feeling. Whether you are using fresh or dried flowers, sneak in a few wheat bundles to the arrangement and see how much warmer and cozier your flowers make the table look.
Make A Homemade Autumn Wreath Using Decorative Wheat Bundles.
Creating homemade wreaths is such fun and doesn’t require any special skills other than a good eye, and the ability to use a hot glue gun. Start with a plain grapevine wreath and use the glue gun to attach Fall flowers, colorful berries, decorative gourds and pumpkins and wheat bundles to ring the outside. The combination of beautiful Autumn blooms and wheat bundles is truly stunning and really gives the home an added warmth.
Fill A Decorative Bowl With Wheat And Dried Bundles Of Corn.
If you love to display dried corn as part of your Fall decor, consider adding several bundles of wheat to the arrangement. Fill a large wooden or seasonally colored bowl with bundles of dried corn and wheat. A layer of silk Fall leaves can be placed on the bottom to create a nest for the wheat and corn. Decorative wine glasses with a deep center can also be filled with the wheat and corn for a unique and festive Autumn centerpiece.
Use Decorative Wheat Bundles As Holiday Place cards.
Expecting a few friends for Halloween brunch or hosting a large crowd for Thanksgiving dinner? Paste white card stock to each bundle of wheat and use a fine point marker to print each guest’s name on the card. A bit of red and white gingham ribbon can be used to wrap the wheat to give it a country feel.
Fill A Decorative Wheelbarrow With Wheat Bundles And Acorns.
Wheelbarrows are a wonderful Fall decor piece and adding wheat bundles to them gives the wheelbarrows an extra special flair. Lay the bundles down the length of the wheelbarrow and place several large acorns on top. These cute and seasonal decor items will look lovely in every room of the home.
Attach Wheat Bundles To The Outside Of A Terra Cotta Pot.
Add a bit of Autumn flair to your favorite Terra cotta pot by attaching wheat bundles to the outside. Use a hot glue gun to attach each bundle separately after lining up each one side by side. If you would like to reuse the bundles in another project next year, use gardening twine or wire to hold the wheat in place in a less than permanent way. Fill the pot with your favorite Fall flowers and add a gingham ribbon to the outside for a lovely seasonal display.
