DIY: Make A Gorgeous Indian Corn Wreath

The Detroit News

Fall is fun. It's cuddle weather. Pumpkin spice everything is back. The foliage is bursting with color and the smell of wood-burning stoves and fireplaces permeates the air.

Wreath made out of Indian corn.

To celebrate the season, we have a wreath to welcome your sweater weather guests. Our Indian Corn Wreath is super easy to make and will take you through Thanksgiving. You won't have to change out this wreath until you're ready to decorate for the holidays. And then, store it until next year. Double bag in an industrial garbage bag and tie tightly to keep out unwanted guests.

Fall wreath made out of small Indian corn.



Glue gun

Glue sticks

Mini Indian corn (number depends on size of corn and wreath)

Straw wreath



Fluff the husks of the mini corn. Glue each ear of corn to the straw wreath, lining up the tips of the corn to make the wreath look even. Hang up and enjoy!


• Choose different colored mini corn

• You can keep the plastic wrapping on the straw wreath

• Because not all corn is the same length, vary them
