Wheat Weaving Tutorial: Head Wreath / Crown

Wheat Weaving Tutorial: Head Wreath / Crown Had a request for a wheat weaving head wreath tutorial.

Wheat head wreaths or crowns are a very traditional symbol. Depending on the culture, they were worn by unmarried women, harvest queens, brides, or by those seeking luck. A head wreath is a very simple wheat weaving, consisting mainly of a “hair braid” type of weaving, that involves weaving additional stems into the braid. It’s a fairly easy one to master, though it helps if you’ve had a little wheat weaving practice before attempting it.
