{my favorite ways to} Decorate With Wheat Grass

I just love that growing wheat grass is cheap, easy, and [I think] beautiful! What a triple win!

I grabbed a bag of by-the-pound wheat berries at the grocery store (I got mine in the bulk foods section at Ingles, for my Asheville friends) and a small bag of miracle grow garden mix. I spent about $6 total for the dirt and seeds. I am using a large white ceramic bowl, a couple of square glass vases, and a couple of lined farmer’s market fruit cartons.

It’s so fun watching the sprouts start to pop up!

And I love using glass containers so the kids can see all the roots growing down.

I love this look with [what I am assuming is flicked paint] eggs tucked in between the blades.

And I adore this one, a beautiful visual story of Jesus’s death and resurrection.

But since it’s already too late this year to have the wheat grass sprouted for Easter, how about a monogram? I can only image how much fun my kids would have trimming this initial.

And I love this idea of small planters with little name cards on twig flagpoles… But I’m seeing a verse or encouraging word on each pennant…

And for a spring centerpiece, birthday party, wedding reception, or baby shower, how fantastic would this be? Add name & table number labels to make them place cards.

Frankly, I’d be happy with just this simple, low bowl full of grass.

There’s just something architectural but organic about wheat grass that I’m drawn to.
