MATERIALS:

  • ¼” Thick plywood round, 10-14 inches in diameter
  • Wheat bunches or pampas grass
  • Hot gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors or rotary cutter
  • Command strips or desired hanging hardware

OPTIONAL:

  • Yarn
  • X-Acto knife and meal ruler or saw for creating “half sun” look
  • Spray paint
  • Paint or stain
  • Paintbrush or stain rags

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Cut the wood round in half; this can be done using an X-Acto knife by using a ruler, scoring it with the X-Acto knife until it snaps. A saw can also be used. PRO TIP: if you don’t want to cut anything, create a full sunburst look by leaving the round intact.
  2. Paint or stain the wood if desired. Allow to dry.
  3. If spray painting the wheat, do so and allow it to dry completely.
  4. Place the wood round on a covered surface, if painted or stained place its colorful side down pre-place the wheat around the curved side of the wood round for spacing.
  5. Once the wheat is spaced out to your liking then attach each stalk of wheat with the hot glue gun.
  6. Once the glue is dry flip the wood round over and fill with more wheat if desired.
  7. You can create a more textured look on the wood round by creating a pattern with yarn on the wood portion, pre-arrange the yarn on the wood before cutting. Attach with a hot glue gun.
  8. Hang with command strips or desired hardware and enjoy!
