Yay, Fall decorating season is here and I’m just a little excited about it…can you tell?! I just love all the options and colors that are so warm and cozy. This time of year my brain explodes with so many things I want to create and I absolutely love to make Fall arrangements and vignettes. This fun wreath is so simple. I love the delicate, sophisticated look and how it’s just enough to accent any space. Here’s how to make your own wheat horseshoe wreath.
This is a very simple project and takes only a few items. Here’s what you will need:
- wreath frame/ring in size of your choice
- bunch of wheat
- crafting wire (20 gage) I don’t recommend florists wire because its green and will show.
- ribbon of your choice- I used a pretty cream satin ribbon. I recommend using a wide ribbon to balance out the wreath itself. A burlap or check would make it a little more casual and would be another fun option.
How to make your wreath
First, lay the ring on a flat surface.
Grab 3 wheat pieces and group them together then lay them on the wreath about 1/3 of the way down.
Take the wire and wrap the first bundle around the wheat attaching it to the ring, then you can cut the ends off leaving about 1-2 inches below the heads. Be sure not to cut the wire, just keep it on the spool so you can keep wrapping as you move your way down the ring.
Then follow down the ring layering groupings on top of each other following the shape of the circle. You can pull strands out or vary the lengths and tuck in more pieces if you want it fuller and just secure with your wire.
Once you have one side complete repeat for the other side leaving an opening at the top.
After both sides are complete you can add your ribbon at the bottom and tie a bow whatever style you like. I just ties a big basic loose bow to drape down below the wreath.
I just love that is’s something a little different from a regular wreath and the simplicity of it. You can add a more colorful or printed ribbon or just keep it simple like I did.
I hope you liked this simple project and let me know if you make one yourself. Stay tuned for upcoming posts of table setting ideas and how I created some seasonal vignettes like the one on this table. FOr more Fall inspiration you can visit this post. Fall Tablescape Inspiration
