Directions

Start by cutting the wheat, dried lavender and dried millet to your desired length. There isn’t a certain length that the stems must be, but you should be able to comfortably hold the bouquet in your arms.

Next, hold the wheat bunch in one hand and pull the inner wheat stems higher then the rest of the bunch, so that the centre stands a little taller. Then take your dried millet and one-by-one place them around the wheat bouquet. Then take your dried lavender and place it around the bouquet, starting at the base of the wheat grains.

Then secure tightly the base of the bouquet with a zip tie.
