Say that fast, five times.
I started my project with a grapevine wreath from Michael’s, and a bunch of wheat from Sobey’s, and what I could collect on hikes around Freshwater Bay (a half-bushel? quarter-bushel? what’s a bushel anyway?). Grand total, $11.
Snapping the wheat stems to leave ~6-8 inches, I then poked each piece through the grapevine wreath’s tendrils. I went around the wreath with about half of the wheat, so that it was evenly filled, but sparse.
Then I filled the remaining empty areas with the second half of my wheat, hiding most of the grapevine, and repositioning any wayward pieces sticking out on the edge. I stole a few pieces of purple cornhusk from some of my Indian corn, and used the glue gun to make a cornhusk bow.
Finished! It took about 45 minutes from start to completion.
