Cornhusk Leaves

Made from the same cornhusks used for tamales, our fall foliage is food-safe as well as pretty. If desired, tint a few leaves with food coloring.

materials

  • Food coloring (optional)

steps

  1. Download leaf templates. Print, and cut out.

  2. Trace templates onto cornhusks; cut out.

  3. In bowls, tint hot water with food coloring, mixing colors to produce fall-like shades of gold, red, and orange.

  4. Submerge cornhusk leaves until desired shades are reached (colors will be lighter when leaves are dry). Let dry between 2 paper towels, weighted to flatten. Iron on low heat with steam to stiffen.
