My first fall project of the year just went up on the front door.
All that gleaning has sure paid off.
And this came together in a single naptime using a cardboard box for a wreath frame and wrapping it with scrap fabric like I did here.
(And do yourself a favor here and wrap some wire around your frame and make a hanging loop on the back before you start gluing on your wheat. I didn’t and it was a pain to do it after the fact.)
Wheat was attached using generous beads of hot glue for a first layer…
… and then second layer. The ends where trimmed along the inside edge for a nice, clean look.
Then extra wheat was glue along the inside edge so that none of the fabric showed through.
And just for fun, I added a double ring of red wheat near the inside edge. I love the rust color and extra contrast.
I’m so excited to have this beauty up on the door, even if it is 97 degrees outside.
And if you want this look for your door without spending a grundle at the craft store, it’s not too late to glean! I found another field yesterday and grabbed two more bucketfuls. Good luck!
