wheat craft projects

Wheat is one of my favorite materials to use for fall decorating.  I grew up on a dairy farm in northern Indiana. I loved to ride with my dad in the combine during the fall wheat harvest. We always stared our threshing with first plucking a stalk of wheat, tipping it upside down in the palm of our hand. We then slowly rotated it into a grinding motion to release the wheat berries.

 My dad would then say, blow off the chafe and taste the wheat berries to see if they are ready. These memories are so dear to me. For this reason, I love having wheat in my home for fall decor. It draws my mind back to those days.
