Across social media and blog posts cornhusk wreaths are becoming more and more popular. They are a fun and festive way to utilize materials that might go to waste. These wreaths can be quite stunning and some of them get super large! Search #cornhuskwreath on Instagram to see some truly gorgeous ones! There are great videos and blogs across the web and after reading a number of these, I decided to try to make one myself! I gathered all the materials and set out to create something new. However, not all DIYs can be a hit! This one was a total fail for me! Now many people have posted about it so there is definitely some success across the web, but I just did not have any success with this project. That being said, don’t write it off as a failure for you too! Some people really do make beautiful wreaths so please, give it a try! Here are some step by step instructions I’ve pulled from a few sites and a list of ingredients!
- Large bunches of dried cornhusks (sometimes you can get these free at local hardware stores)
- A metal wreath frame or metal hanger bent into a ring
- Wire clippers
- Paddle wire or twine
