Full speed on to Thanksgiving which often gets overlooked in the preparation for Christmas. Well not in this house! College Boy picked up on Thanksgiving being overlooked pretty early on so ever since then I have made sure to decorate for it at least as much as I do for Halloween. This year is extra special because CB will be home for Thanksgiving for the first time in 2 years!!! Yes I am triple exclamation point excited.
I remember seeing cornhusk wreaths in magazines and on Pinterest last year and knew I wanted to try one this year.
For this project you will need:
- Cornhusks ( I am not Martha enough to have saved and dried my own from Summer corn on the cob…got mine at the grocery store by the Mexican spices. $3.99)
- Wreath form ( Dollar Tree)
- Glue Gun
- Glue Sticks
- Kraft paper or brown bag
I decided just in case I wasn’t even about placing my corn husks ( and didn’t want any of the green from the wreath form showing through) I’d cover the wreath form with some paper. I used painter’s masking paper but you could use kraft paper, brown bags etc.
I was actually happy with the wreath before I added these but once I did, I was really happy because it gave the wreath a more natural wild look.
