Hey friends! So I don’t know if I could have cut this project any closer to Thanksgiving (well, I guess I could post it on Thanksgiving) which is the unofficial cutoff to post fall/Thanksgiving projects. Ah – who am I kidding? Halloween is the fall/Thanksgiving cutoff these days. I’ll spare you my whining about why I posted this project so late and get into it before it gets any later!
This project is so simple that if you have a wreath and some ornamental corn you can throw it together for Thanksgiving tomorrow. All you need is a 15 inch wreath, some ornamental corn (I used 24) and a hot glue gun.
Lay the corn out around the wreath to figure out how many corn cobs you need. I used 24 so figure it’ll be roughly that, but your number may vary depending on the size of the corn cobs and/or wreath.
If some of your corn cobs are ugly and/or the husks are sparse or missing, don’t be afraid to mix and match them by pulling the husks off the ugly corn and hot gluing it on the pretty corn. Trust me – no one will know.
Glue the corn cobs to the straw wreath. Here’s the finished wreath flipped over so you can see how I did it. Don’t be afraid to improvise if you need to.
Here’s a picture of the finished wreath laying on my table.
One thing I didn’t anticipate is this sucker is heavy. Be prepared to hang it on a well anchored hook or using a over-the-door wreath hanger. If weight is a problem, you can do this using a smaller wreath and/or miniature ornamental corn.
Here’s a bunch of pictures of the wreath hanging on my front door:
I hope you enjoyed my DIY Ornamental Corn Wreath Tutorial!
Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
