Project

Fall Garland

Create a seasonal garland to drape around the doorway using multicolored decorative dried corn.

Created By: Ellie Miller

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Space cobs 6 to 8 inches apart on a length of raffia (available at crafts stores), tying it around each piece where the husk meets the kernels.

  2. Step 2

    The cobs will hang vertically; if you'd like them to be horizontal (as shown in the center of garland), tie the tip of each cob to the husk of the next using floral wire.

    Sorry, Hipster, but I HAD to laugh! I have to agree with you, though. I can just hear my husband now. LOL!

    I can just see the squirrels swinging from this now! It would last about 2 minutes! Very pretty, though!
