How to Make a Pretty DIY Corn Husk Wreath for Seasonal Decor
Welcome, fellow craft enthusiasts! If you're looking for an affordable and creative way to add a touch of autumn to your home, you're in the right place.
Today, I'll show you how to make a corn husk wreath, perfect for fall and Thanksgiving. Plus, it will only cost you $7.00 and a couple of hours of your time.
Tools and Materials:
1. Preparing the Base
Begin by covering the entire wreath frame with corn husks. To do this, simply wrap the husks around the wreath and secure them in place with hot glue. This forms the foundation of your corn husk wreath.
2. Crafting the Petals
In this step, we'll create the "petals" that give your wreath its distinct look. Fold the corn husks in half and cut them into a petal shape.
3. Adding a Splash of Color (Optional)
For an extra touch of creativity, you can paint some of the husks. If you choose to do so, use acrylic paint. To achieve a uniform look, create a template using a piece of cardboard to paint around the tips of the husks.
4. Assembling the Petals
Glue the first row of petals to the bottom of the wreath. Take your time to ensure they are securely attached.
5. Building the Layers
Continue by attaching the second row of petals to the middle of the wreath.
Carefully bend each husk and apply hot glue for a strong hold.
Move on to the third row, bending the ends of the husks backward and securing them with hot glue.
These petals should be applied to the inside of the wreath, creating depth and dimension.
6. Adding a Hanger
To display your beautiful creation, flip the wreath upside down and hot glue a piece of twine to the back. This will serve as a hanger.
Hang your completed corn husk wreath in your dining room or wherever you like to add a festive touch to your Thanksgiving decorations.
