Wheat is one of the most common grain in the world. Speaking of wheat, the first thing that comes to our mind are products made of wheat, for instance, bread, pasta, or noodles. People add value to wheat by grinding it. But is that the only method of value addition to wheat?
When I visited a women’s group in a rural area of Aomori, Japan, they taught me how to make lovely ornaments of wheat. As the pictures below show, the ears can be transformed into a wreath, and the stalks can be made into a vase for dried flowers. Both look very beautiful! You can try it with other grain products. Enjoy your creativity!
