Homemade Corn Wreath!

A couple of weeks ago I posted a picture on Facebook of my newest craft. Last year I made a cotton wreath to take with me when I moved out here. I actually made about 5 and gave them to my family members! I wanted to make something this year that would be a tribute to my time in Illinois.

My inital idea for the corn wreath completely changed once I realized how hard it would be to make the ears of corn perfectly aligned with one another. Somehow, I had the idea to make the wreath out of the husks instead. I'm so glad I did! It turned out really great!

I used the straw wreath instead of the wire wreath.

 Lots of hot glue was involved per every wreath project.

I needed a way to incorporate the corn itself, so I decided to cut an L out of cardboard and hot glue the corn kernals to the cardboard. Yay for my future new last name!

Finished Product:

I'm going to keep it hung inside because with this wind it will certainly fall apart.

Now I have both my cotton wreath and my corn wreath... two very important symbols in my life!

Wow that was an awesome idea. So cute. To bad you can't hang it outside so everyone could see it! Bugs would probably get to it cause of the kernals !
