Corn Husk Wreath for #LoveYourLifeFriday

Corn Husk Wreath by Chessa Moore for #LoveYourLifeFriday at karenehman.com.

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
  • scissors
  • stapler

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.
