Harvest Centerpiece

Wheat symbolizes a fruitful life. How appropriate for Thanksgiving .

This centerpiece includes other dried grasses , so it can be made days in advance.

How To:

You will need about 6 bunches if dried grass and wheat

Bundle 15 or so stems together at a time(they 're easiest to handle if you secure bundles with floral tape about 4 inches below grain pods)

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

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.

I just thought this was too pretty not to share.
