You can create this colorful wreath in less than an hour. It is unique and one of a kind, depending upon the color Indian corn you use. Indian corn is readily available at your local supermarket. I’ve made the large wreath with a 12-inch wreath form but you can easily use smaller Indian corn on an 8-inch wreath.
You will need:
8 ears of Indian corn with the husks attached
8 silk fall leaves
12-inch wreath form (I found one made of Masonite at Michaels craft store)
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
24 gauge gold wire
1. Bend the husk back and lay the corn cob on top. If it doesn’t bend easily dampen a bit and bend carefully. Add some hot glue on the wreath form and place the folded corn in the glue to attach. Add some more hot glue on the corn itself, securing it to the form. Be generous with the glue but make sure it is in inconspicuous areas. When the glue had dried a bit, cut a length of wire and wrap the wire around the top of the corn where the husk attaches, twisting together securely in the back.
2. Repeat step one directly across from the first ear of corn. Try and fluff out the husks as wide as you can to fill in the areas between the ears. Continue adding ears of corn spacing evenly until you have glued and wired all 8 ears.
3. Squirt some hot glue between each ear of corn and attach a silk fall leaf on top of the husks. (See photo)
4. Cut a length of wire and fold in half. Make a loop for hanging, thread the ends through the wreath and secure together.
If you would like to make a smaller wreath use small Indian corn cobs on an 8-inch form. You can eliminate the leaves if you so desire. Simply fluff out and glue the husks in the areas between the cobs.
