"A" is for Apple & Wheat Wreath

Craft: diy apple and wheat wreath

It's a wreath mash up today where I combined two beautiful wreath ideas into one.  I fell in love with Ann's gorgeous wheat wreath at On Sutton Place:


They are both truly lovely wreaths on their own.
Since I couldn't decide I put them together to make this apple wheat wreath:

Not as show stopping as the inspiration that's for sure but I still love it.

How to make an apple and wheat wreath:

- faux apples
- 12" straw wreath
- wheat
- floral pins
- moss
- hot glue gun & glue sticks
- burlap ribbon

Step 1: Take bundles of wheat and secure to wreath using floral pin.

Continue adding wheat bundles until wreath is 2/3 full.

Step 2: Hot glue apples directly onto wreath.

Step 3: Shove moss in between apples to fill gaps.  Add burlap bow.
