All you need to create this is:
  1. A bundle of wheat
  2. Glue Gun
  3. Jute or rope cord
  4. Flameless candle or any circular base to glue the wheat – you can use the cardboard from a cereal box too. 
  5. Scissors

I decided to put my spin on this wheat harvest bundle by taking an old flameless candle and building it around it. Decor elements that light up are always so pretty and thought it would look beautiful at night creating a warm cozy atmosphere. 
I am eventually going to make another one so I have a matching pair. I love crafting it’s so relaxing and the payoff is always so wonderful.

Begin by gluing the wheat around the base of the candle or whatever base you decide to use. If you can’t get stalks of wheat you can also use barley.

You can purchase the harvest wheat bundles at most craft stores or over at Amazon. I love the darker color but, you can choose any shade you love.  Once you glue the harvest wheat, trim the bottom so it will be level on the bottom. You will want to make sure it’s level so you can stand it properly.

Then, simply tie the jute or cord around the middle section. I decided to use two types of jute rope for the center design. The center jute is a thinner gauge than the surrounding jute.

I wanted mine to light up at night that’s why I used a flameless candle but, you can use any base you have handy.

I love the warm glow of the flameless candle – at night-time, I always lit the candles around my home to create a warm and cozy atmosphere.

    How do you change the batteries without tearing the whole thing apart?

      Exactly, Sassy Townhouse Living. Since the bottom of the project is the bare bottom of the candle, it would be quite easy to replace the batteries. Given that the candles you used were the kind with the battery placement on the bottom.

    Will the wheat start to die or break apart?

      I can see sea grass, evergreen cuttings, and yard twigs in this design. Such a great idea. ☺️

    I tried this!! After much cussing, I figured out that the partiular flameless candle I have has a layer of wax on the outside. Glue gun (low-temp) melted the wax layer and made it very difficult. I ended up using small amonts of E6000 glue and got it finished. I really love the look of it!

      Oh good! I'm glad the glue worked! I guess it's the type of candle you use. The one I used didn't have that issue. I'm glad you mentioned it here for the others. So glad you love it!
