I keep my Fall decorating super simple and like to stay within my neutral color palate. So I decided to create a few wreaths from corn husks that have an understated Autumn vibe. These wreaths are easy to make and don't require many supplies, but they do take some time to put together.

Here's what you need to create your own corn husk wreath:

1. 8-10 Indian corn ears with husks - I bought mine from a roadside produce stand

2. An embroidery hoop

3. Floral wire

4. Hot glue gun


1. Cut the husks off the ears of corn

2. Group pieces of corn husks together in bunches of 6-8 pieces and use wire to secure them onto the hoop like this...

Secure the bunches onto the hoop the whole way around, overlapping them as shown above.

3. When you are done with that, the wire will be noticeable, so use your hot glue gun to glue pieces of husk on the inside of the hoop as well as over any wire that is showing. Trim off any pieces that are too big.

You can hot glue a piece of twine in a loop onto the back of your wreath to create a hanger. And you are done!
