wheatbundlediycraftberrybush-10 Today I’m sharing this super easy but super cute fall wheat bundle.  wheatbundlediycraftberrybush-9 During my recent trip to Homesense or Homegoods for my US friends, I had seen little bundles of loose wheat or barley? I had someone correct me to say it was barley,although the package says wheat, so I will let you decide. Anyhow, I had placed the little bunch in a vase, but it was a little too organic looking for me, so I decided to make it into a tight little bundle. I love how it looks on the kitchen counter.

To make your own you will need:

Wheat or barley bunch
Can of food
Cardboard (I used a cereal box)
Hot glue
Tape
Jute, twine or cotton string
Scissors

Cut open cereal box and cut a piece big enough to cover the can.

Cover can and secure cardboard with tape. wheatbundlediycraftberrybush-4

Hot glue wheat stalks side by side making sure they’re straight and very close together.  wheatbundlediycraftberrybush-5

Continue gluing stalks around the entire can.  wheatbundlediycraftberrybush-6

Trim excess at the bottom.  wheatbundlediycraftberrybush-7

Take some twine and wrap around bundle. You can use a nice ribbon if you wish.  You can also stick a few stalks in the center just to cover any gaps and make it look fuller. :)  wheatbundlediycraftberrybush-8

Secure twine with hot glue and you’re done! The can inside makes the bundle super sturdy.  wheatbundlediycraftberrybush-9 Super easy right?
