Harvest Centerpiece
“A table arrangement of grains celebrates the bounty of fall. In addition to the wheat, which symoblizes a fruitful life, this texture displayed includes other dried grasses(available at craft stores), so it can be made weeks ahead. The final flourish? A luxurious satin bow.(Grains and grasses from Dry Nature Designs; ribbon from Masterstroke Canada).”

Supplies and Tools
Colored Floral Tape
For each centerpiece, you’ll need about hundred stalks(six bunches) of dried grass and wheat
Ribbon
Floral Pruner

How-To
1. Bundle fifteen or so stems together at a time(they’re easiest to handle if you secure bundles with floral tape about four inches below grain pods).
2. Hold between thumb and forefinger at an angle. Add bundles, in a spiral shown, until all are used.
3. Wrap with floral tape(choose a color that matches your ribbon). Trim ends with floral pruner(cut center tips shorter for a stable base). Tie a wide ribbon over tape.
