You remember the autumn wreath that I made two weeks ago? It's on the outside of our front door. Well, our front door has a window (not sure I would make that same choice again - wreaths are so much prettier on a solid surface, lol). Anyway, you can see the form of the outdoor wreath from the inside. I don't like it.
So I decided to make an indoor wreath to cover up the view of the outdoor wreath. At our old house, we planted decorative corn and I still had a pile of it. I snapped off all of the corn from the dried husks and kept the husks for this project.
The corn cobs were put to use making the Indian Corn Centerpiece from last week's Falling for Crafts Challenge over at One Artsy Mama.
Anyway, back to the wreath. :) I started with a flat cardboard wreath (really I could have just made it from a cereal box, which I will likely do next time). I used the glue gun to glue on each section of dried corn husk. After I completed the entire circle, I then put husks around the inside of that inner circle, just to clean up the edges. Again, this was with a glue gun. I added a ribbon at the bottom for decoration and at the top for hanging. And now both sides of the front door have autumn wreaths. Makes me happy.
