I’m so excited to be part of the “All the Fall Projects” blog hop today. If you are stopping by from Annmarie’s blog, Make Every Day an Event, welcome!
I’m so happy you are here.
Are you ready for an easy, fun, five-minute fall project?
You have come to the right post.
You see, every day I wake up with a new fall idea.
I can’t help it.
There are leaves and pinecones and grass and pumpkins and acorns just waiting for a project.
Like this one.
Here’s how to make a DIY Dried Flower Bundle.
How to Make a Dried Flower Bundle
This is technically a two supply craft
(three if you count scissors and four if you count a smile)
dried fall florals
Step 1: start with your dried fall florals
I used wheat for the first set of bundles I created.
I bought the wheat in packages and used two bundles of wheat for each dried flower bundle.
Make sure when you are picking your fall florals that they are all in the same color family. Wheat, for example, can vary in color from stalk bundle to stalk bundle.
Step 2: Make sure all the wheat stalks are even
I took the wheat stalks in one hand and tap them on the counter.
Hold them loosely when you tap, so all the wheat aligns at the bottom.
The top might be slightly uneven.
We aren’t looking for wheat perfection. 🙂
Step 3: Tie off the bundle
Cut a piece of jute twine approximately 3 feet long.
Start by tying the end of the piece of twine around your wheat bundle.
Tie it as tightly as you can in a double knot.
Step 4: Wrap the bundle with the twine
Take the end of the twine and start wrapping.
I wrapped about two inches of the bundle and then circled back and wrapped back to the top again.
Once you finish wrapping, tie off the ends as tightly as possible.
Step 4: Trim the excess
The secret to making the dried fall floral bundles stand up?
Make sure to trim the bottom of the wheat to make it even.
Then spread out the bottom of the stalks and decorate.
I loved the wheat bundles so much, I made these miniature bundles.
And to make it a little easier to understand?
I made a video.
You can see the step-by-step on all things DIY flower bundles and how I decorated with them in the video below.
