ie. skeleton leaves, raffia, burlap…..stuff like that!
So I remembered that I’ve wanted to create something using Corn Husks!!
Yes, Corn Husks!! why??…well why not!? lol
This was so much fun to put together, I’ll show ya the video of my creating it
now, then after, the pictures and product list!
I took these pictures outside to get some great natural light! It was later than I wanted but they came out ok.
I Love everything about the FALL season! The colors, the temperature…I don’t like the wind here on this side of the state, but it’s my home:)
Great Holidays just around the corner to create some new theme inspired projects and new memories with family and friends! I miss my family in Los Angeles terribly, but I thank God for them!!
(Please let me know if you have any questions ok, I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!)

The Corn Husks can be found in packs at your local market in the Spanish food section! I soaked them so that the dirt can soften and would be easier to clean. I just washed them off and tossed them in the dryer and with some I did have to use a paper towel to get in the crevices so that I could glue them down and they would stay. I was ok with them being a little wet because it makes them more flexible! 🙂
Give it a try for your next Fall themed project!
I also used Burlap from my stash to make the hang loop at the top of my wreath, I just cut a strip and carefully sewed along the edges to keep it from fraying and falling apart. The Maya Road chipboard letters I used can be found here and the Hot Glue Gun Helper kit can be found here! Thanks!
Have a great day!!
