This is a little something that kept me busy today. I saw this idea on one of my favorite blogs, from Suzanne of Chickens in the Road Blog.
My wreath turned out looking a little different then hers. I made mine basically the same way as my twig wreath that I made a year ago.
Here are the things you need to get started.
Dried corn husks
heavy gauge wire or a wire coat hanger
First you have to have dried corn husks. About a month ago after eating sweet corn, I saved the husks and dried them outside in the sun. That took a couple of weeks. This wreath was made with a dozen ears of corn husks. It probably could have used a few more husks, but that was all I had. This wreath is around 14" wide.
Gather up a few husks at a time and wrap your twinge around them a couple of times, pulling really tight. I tried to overlap the bottom end of the husks to cover up the tied section of the husk before that one.
