Thanksgiving Chevron Wheat Frame

Welcome to the holiday season everyone!

Halloween costumes and decorations were packed up this morning in gleeful anticipation of Thanksgiving. I hate the blitz to Christmas and the rush to throw red and green up too soon. Because there are so, so many things to be thankful for. And I know that for me, the more time I spend focusing on my blessings and the spirit of Thanksgiving, the more likely I am to remember the true spirit of Christmas.

So … first up on the Thanksgiving decorating agenda?

I made this little beauty with the last of my gleaned wheat and some scrap chocolate satin.

The frame was a double thickness of cardboard wrapped in scrap fabric, just like I did for my wheat and burlap wreaths.

Two tones of wheat were hot glued in a chevron pattern to give this little frame some fun pattern and texture.

… and inside of the frame were covered with a double layer of wheat.

I was going to print off a quote or picture on scrapbook paper and tape it to the back (which would look great), but I decided to leave it open and tie a simple ribbon bow from scraps.

And don’t worry if you don’t have any gleaned wheat laying around. Any dried flowers, seed pods, weeds or even wheat from the craft store would work. You could also get a similar look by skipping organics all together and using two tones of burlap or muslin. Hey, rock what ya got, right?

A quick bow and a cheapie thumb tack later … welcome Thanksgiving.

This little half wall next to my computer is the perfect spot for this holiday frame .

Tomorrow I’ll show you what I put beneath the frame to finish off the wall.

Until tomorrow … (Edited to add)

  1. That looks amazing! I love the big satin bow. I think most of the farmers around here grew cotton this year…I wonder if I can find two tones of wheat at the craft store?

  2. THIS is TOO cool. Normally the boyfriend doesnt pay much attention to the blog I visit on the laptop next to him, but this time this one caught his attention and he, said "wow, thats really cool" so I told him the next time he sees a bunch of wheat he needs to pick some for me. 🙂
