Cornhusk Votives

Source: Martha Stewart Living, November 2003


Wrapped in dried cornhusks, votives cast a soft glow and serve as a reminder that corn was part of the first Thanksgiving feast.


  • Cutting mat

  • Ruler

  • Utility knife

  • Dried cornhusks

  • Double-sided tape

  1. On a cutting mat, use a ruler and utility knife to cut the widest part of the dried cornhusks (available at crafts stores) to the height of your votive holders.

  2. Apply double-sided tape around a votive holder, about 1/4 inch from the bottom. Affix 2 or 3 cornhusks, overlapping the edges, to the holder.

  3. Finish by tying with a ribbon.
