This Corn Husk Wreath is a rustic nod to the harvest season, and it’s made with tamale wrappers from the grocery store. You can easily DIY it!
What you need
Bowl of water and paper towels
1. Dunk corn husks in water, blot slightly on paper towels, and wrap round wreath, overlapping edges of husks to form first layer that covers
straw entirely. Secure undersides of husks with T pins as you go.
2. To shape radiating husks: Dunk husks in water, blot slightly, and temporarily pin to wreath so they dry naturally in draped, curled, or undulating shapes. Go round the wreath, creating several layers. Let radiating husks dry a few hours.
3. Permanently attach radiating husks a few at a time, using glue gun to position on wreath. Attach in layers, tucking additional husks behind
until you reach desired fullness. As you go, use scissors to trim husk lengths and widths.
