For as long as people have been growing grain, they have created designs with the stalks and heads. In England, where grain is known as corn, these figures are called Corn Dollies.

I'm currently using golden, blackbeard and blackberry wheat as well as some rye (though I no longer have a good source for rye so I've not pictured anything in rye here).
