Corn Husk Wreath for #LoveYourLifeFriday
For years I’ve seen wreaths made out of corn husks and I’ve always wanted to try my hand at making one. Here’s how I did it (along with my good friend, Kate).
Supplies we used:
- 1 package of Corn Husks (we found ours at Wal-Mart, in the produce section)
- wreath form
We soaked a couple packages of the corn husks in water for about an hour. Once they are soft you’ll want to separate them.
And then we laid them out to dry a bit. You don’t want them TOO dry, or they’ll break because they are so brittle.
Cut the ends off…
So you have pieces that look like this:
Tear down the middle, like this:
And then fold them in half, like this:
Get out your wreath form (no need to remove the plastic).
Start stapling them on, about 4 in a row.
The rows should be overlapping.
Until your wreath starts to look nice and full like this:
Add a nice bow with some thick wire lined ribbon.
The perfect addition to your fall decor!
