Alternative Bouquets: Pretty Prairie
Create your own wheat bouquet, perfect for a country wedding.
Materials -Strands of wheat (can be colourful) -Floral wire -Twine -Scissors -2” corsage pins
Instructions Step 1: Cut twine into nine strands – 6 ft. in length.
Step 2: Tie together three pieces of twine at the top of each strand and braid them together three quarters of the way down. Tie a knot at the end of the braid.
Step 3: Repeat step 2 for the other pieces of twine. You will end with three separate braids.
Step 4: Tie the three braids together at the top of each strand (where the braid is, not where the loose ends are). Braid the three together and tie a knot at the end – there should be loose twine.
Step 5: Arrange wheat into a bouquet shape and secure with floral wire around the middle of the stem.
Step 6: Starting at the back of the bouquet, tightly wrap the braided twine around the stem, covering the floral wire.
Step 7: Once you have wrapped the twine, keep it in place by securing the middle of the knot with a corsage pin.
Step 7: Trim the loose strand of twine to a desired length.
Step 8: Trim the bottom of the wheat for an even length. Related Articles Craft Ideas: How To Make a Bouquet Alternative Bouquets: Beachy Bridal
