Love decorating with natural elements, especially for fall? Today we’re showing you how to make these beautiful felt wheat stalks that Krista designed. 

Since it is a bit time-consuming to make each individual grain, we recommend using a cutting machine for this project. But you can always cut by hand using our template below.

The S-Wheat Life

Wheat stalks make such beautiful fall decor (along with autumn leaves and wreaths!). Not only do they add such interesting texture to your space, but the neutral colors are also very calming to look at and can fit in with any type of home decor. 

Another great thing about these felt wheat stalks is that they use very few materials. And with just a bit of time, you can make a bunch of stalks and style them in a vase for fall harvest.
