I am going to make Wheat Sheaf centerpieces for the wedding and I’ve been looking at buying the wheat for those, but I couldn’t find anything relatively inexpensive in Toronto. Dried wheat started showing up at stores, but it’s 4$ for a tiny little bunch and I’d need about 5-6 of those for one centerpiece. I found them online in the states for a good price, but with shipping and duties it’s not worth it.
So, I was talking about it on facebook and one of my friends got a whole trunk full of wheat from farmers for me!!! The bunches were drying in the shed for the last few weeks and this morning my Fiance and I drove to her city and storted the wheats and oats and brought home a lot!!!! Now, I need to start making centerpieces and it’s going to be a lot of work because it’s not clean, it’s not stripped off outer layer and it’s all different length, but I think it’s going to be worth it 🙂

Great score! Aren’t friends wonderful? Yes, it will take a little work, but then you can be even prouder of your centerpieces!

Wheat is bent and not properly dried, so it doesn’t look straight. It’s far from perfect, but you are right – it’s free and honestly, I do not care that much about centerpieces being perfect. I’m sure my friends would not even notice the difference.
Spent some time with Fiance today and we came up with this. I think I like it enough to make the other 11 centerpieces like this. I am not too crazy about the epson salt, I think it would be better with different colour, but I can’t come up with anything else except for the sand, but I think sand really would not work as it would make it look beachy.
What do you guys think?
