Wreaths of the Heartland
What says "Kansas" better than wheat and sunflowers? The state ranks first nationwide in wheat production and third in sunflower production, and the sunflower has been a state symbol since March 12, 1903.
To make this project: This easy swag begins with a premade sheaf of wheat (ours was 26 inches long). Thread the sheaf through a foam wreath. Use a wet floral foam form if using fresh sunflowers, and a dry foam form for dried sunflowers. Wire the sheaf and ring together. Cut the sunflower stems very close to the base of the flower, then gently push into the floral foam to cover the form. Make a plaid bow, then tie it with florist's wire to the intersection of the sheaf and wreath.
