Autumn Wreath With Corn Husk Leaves

6 Materials
15 Minutes

These DIY corn husk Autumn wreaths can be used indoors or outdoors. Hang them on your walls or hang them on your front door and let them be the first thing your guests see as they enter your home.

Autumn wreaths are an easy Autumn craft for kids or for Mums and Dads who think they’re rubbish at crafts! These really are the most simple wreaths to make. Think of them as ‘The lazy girls guide to Autumn wreaths’. No, I’m saying you’re lazy, I’m just saying that home styling for each season doesn’t always have to be a mammoth task to be dreaded.

For these simple Autumn wreaths, I use a metal wire ring as a base. These wreaths also look stunning on smaller rings and you could even make three in varying sizes and hang them together for a really stunning look.

Attach the corn husk leaves

Take a small bundle of dried corn husk leaves and attach them to the wire ring with florists wire.

Overlap each bundle

Continue to do this all the way around, making sure to slightly overlap each bundle so you cover up the wire.

Attach the Autumn leaves

Glue some colourful dried Autumn leaves around the inside of the wreath to finish.

Add some ribbon

Now all you need to do is attach some ribbon, burlap or string to your Autumn wreath and hang it up.

    Hi, this year I was going to make a wreath similar to yours and did not find the leaves like yours. all I can find are the regular crafting/cooking husks. Can you please tell me where you bought yours or did you go to your local farm stand and ask for them? Thank you for taking the time to answer.
