I’ve recently noticed an abundance of wild sunflowers blooming along the ditch banks. The other day, I cut a bunch on my way home from town and thought it would be fun to do an arrangement of them with wheat (courtesy of pilfering it from the end of my brother’s field. Thanks, Kim!).
Tucked into an old blue jar, I just love the contrast in colors and textures. And to me, this is a perfect arrangement to segue from late summer into early autumn.
The arrangements just takes minutes to make and will be such a lovely addition to your September decor.
Jar or vase (if you have an old canning jar, even better!)
Sunflower stems (can use fresh or silk)
Wheat (fresh or fake works!)
Ribbon or jute string
Trim stems so they stand approximately 11/2 to 2 times taller than your container. You can vary the heights of the stems to give them more visual interest.
Arrange the sunflowers in the jar.
Tuck in the stems of wheat, tie a ribbon or jute string around the top of the jar, and that’s it!
You are now the proud owner of a beautiful early autumn arrangement!
Cost… nothing if you use a jar you already have, ribbon you forgot was in a drawer, and florals you clip from the ditch bank or steal from a family member’s field!
