Diy Indian Corn Wreath

3 Materials
25 Minutes

I had tons of Indian corn in our garden this year. So I went in search of what I could do with it.

This is my version of an Indian corn wreath. I used what I had on hand but all things could be found at a dollar store or your craft store.

Hot gluing

I used a 12" wreath form I had on hand. I wrapped it in some muslin I had because I didn't want the green to show through between the ears

More gluing

I just started hot gluing the ears onto the wreath.

Halfway done

I literally just kept hot gluing the Indian corn on. In the one photo you can see I'm adding just a touch of the hot glue between the ears. I didn't do this to every ear just a few. It seemed to make them hold on better.


This really only took me less that a half hour. You just keep gluing all the way around and go back and add more glue where they may not be on as good. I then luped a piece of jute through the front to the back for the hanger. This is quite heavy when done. And I recommend hanging it on something that can hold heavier items.

    I learned the hard way, spray or brush the corn w sealer! Over time it starts to fall apart. Bugs can be a serious issue, too. If you plan on keeping corn, seal it.

    Yeah, I packed away my Thanksgiving decorations and the next year they were disintegrating! They had pick up a tiny little weavel like bug and it was eating it. We tend to forget they are organic due to how hard they are. 😉
