This fall corn husk wreath is simple as it is timeless. With just a couple of easy instructions and supplies, this wreath will take your home into the fall season perfectly!
The fall season is just around the corner. I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly looking forward to it! There’s just something about that cool, crisp air that gets you inspired. In the hopes of inspiring you for the upcoming fall season, I’ve joined several friends to share our DIY fall wreaths with you. Although fall is not quite here, this is the time to get those fall decor projects started!
When it comes to fall decor for my home, I’ve always gravitated towards items that are found in nature. It’s just a small way to bring the outdoors in. After all, the most beautiful part of fall is the outdoor scenery. In the past I’ve made pinecone, leaf and wheat wreaths. This year I thought I’d give a corn husk wreath a try. This wreath is an ode to the iconic corn maze. It’s easy to assemble and requires just a couple of basic items.
- Corn husk – I found mine HERE. I only used one bag (about 20 husks), but I purchased two bags just in case.
- 18” Straw wreath form
- U Floral pins
- 2” Satin Ribbon
You’ll want to start by ripping the husks in half, vertically. Next, soak the husks in cool water. They only need to soak for a minute or until flexible. Remove from the water and place on a towel. Pat each one dry and immediately start working with them. They can be soaked a second time if they become too brittle to work with.
Fold your husk in half, meeting both ends together. Pin the folded husk to the wreath form. I used three husks for each layer, one on the inside of the wreath, one on the front and one along the outside. Work your way around the wreath until it is full.
For the ribbon, I used a chocolate brown satin ribbon. I love the color combination of the pale yellow husks with the rich brown satin. I wanted the ribbon around the wreath not to look too tight or pulled, so I loosely secured a piece that wraps around the front and is pinned in the back. This will prevent the husks from being pulled or getting flattened by the ribbon.
For the ribbon pieces that secure it to our secretary, I cut 2 – 18″ pieces and pinned each to the back of the wreath. This gave me the length to tie the two ends together to hold the wreath in place.
Once you’ve hung your wreath, whether on a mirror, above a mantel or simply on your door, step back and admire! I do recommend hanging this wreath indoors, where it is not susceptible to moisture. A dry environment is best to keep this wreath in good condition for years to come.
The soft flowing husks give the wreath a relaxed, yet classic look.
I’m already considering making two smaller versions for my dining room with the husks that I have left over. I think this wreath would also look great on the outside of our Irish hutch!
Although we’ve only had the wreath up for a week or so, I’m already enjoying it so much! It’s the perfect tough to slowly step into fall.
