I am fond of the rustic, natural, and old-fashioned look and feel of corn husk wreaths. This easy-to-create corn husk wreath took me 15 minutes to make and the materials cost less than $15!
This quick tutorial only requires three key ingredients and a short amount of time to make.
- Corn husk picks. During a recent hunt for pumpkins, I found myself browsing the aisles of Walmart and stumbled upon packages of corn husk picks for .98 cents a package. I scooped up 10 packages with the idea of making a fall inspired wreath.
- Grapeview wreath. I always have a “collection” of grapevine wreaths on hand for DIY projects. Every time I spot one at the thrift store, I bring it home with me. Many time they are disguised under a layer of faux flowers which can easily be pulled out. This grapevine wreath was less than $2.
- Rope, burlap, or ribbon. I used a leftover piece of rope from my DIY rope wrapped lamp bases to add a “hook” to the wreath. It would also be darling to add a thick piece of burlap ribbon or a buffalo check ribbon instead of the rope.
How to Make an Easy Rustic Corn Husk Wreath
Step One: Insert the wire piece of the corn husk pick into the grapevine wreath.
Step Two: Working clockwise, stagger, overlap, and layer each pick to ensure the corn husks neatly disguise the base of the picks.
Step Three: Adjust and shape the corn husk leaves as you go along.
Step Four: Once all the corn husk picks are in place, tie a piece of rope or ribbon around the top of the wreath to make a hook for it to hang.
Step Five: Step back and enjoy your creation! Here is my finished wreath hung over one of the bicycle rims in my entryway. Easy peasy and oh so cute!
Blessings to you and your home,
