Wheat Chandelier

Martha Stewart Weddings, Summer 2013

Tools and Materials

Wire basket
Heavy-duty twine
Dried wheat
26-gauge gold craft wire
Wire cutters

  1. Flip a wire basket upside down and attach twine securely to center (you will hang chandelier from twine when you are finished).
  2. Gather about 15 stalks of wheat and form a small bundle. Lay the basket on its side and affix bundle with craft wire, attaching it near where the basket begins to curve. Repeat until you have covered the basket entirely.
  3. Pull gently on the wheat heads to adjust, stagger individual stalks, and fill in any holes.
