Video Instructions for a Fall Wheat Wreath
You can watch the wheat wreath video here.
- Tie the paddle wire around one spot on the wreath form. Ensure it’s tight.
- Wrap the wire around the spot a few more times then put it aside without cutting it.
- Group the wheat into bundles. If you want a fuller wreath, make big bundles; if you want a delicate wreath, make small bundles.
- Take one bundle and attach it to the frame. Angle it to the side.
- Wrap the paddle wire around the wheat to secure it. Cut off extra stems on the wheat.
- Attach more bundles of wheat and alternate the direction each time. Some can face outside while some face inside.
- When you get to the last bundle, cut the wire and secure it.
- Cover the gap between the first and last bundle with small bundles of wheat. Attach them with paddle wire. Use as many bundles as you need to make the wreath look finished.
- You can also make a bow with the burlap ribbon and attach it using floral pins.

Thank you so much for posting this easy to follow tutorial. I’ve been wanting to make a wheat wreath for a while now and now is the perfect time since the field is full of wheat and ready to be harvested. I just had to go beat the guys to what I needed for my wreath first! After I dried it out all I had to buy was the frame since I already had everything else. It turned out great! Thank you so much, once again!
