Years ago my best friend Susan made wheat ornaments for me. She had really good luck with hers..they are holding up very nicely..of course I think of her when I put them on the tree!
I tried wheat weaving or Hvetevefting..I soaked the wheat in a bucket..I braided the stalks together..I made ornaments ..they slowly lost all their grains and were left looking skinny but bearded. I threw them away. Luckily for me I have a friend who shared her good harvest with me. Wheat is a symbol of life and the key ingredient of bread.
Our tree is finally complete..see I had plenty of time..these days before Christmas are listed on a piece of paper..it is "The List" that we will live by for the next few days.. Happy first day of winter! :)
