It's getting to be that time..... time to decorate for fall.

Corn Husk Wreath:
For every season I make a wreath. I'm not sure why, because by the time I'm done buying the supplies for my wreaths they seem to never be as inexpensive as I expected. However, I love to craft, I love that nobody else has the same wreath, and I love it when someone comes over and asks where I got my wreath.

I wanted to make a wreath that would last me through the whole fall season. Not just Halloween or Thanksgiving. I came up with a wreath made from dried corn husks.

-Straw wreath from Jo-Ann Fabrics
-T-pins (approximately 200)
-One 8oz package of dried corn husks (you can get them in the grocery store in the Mexican food section)
-Ribbon or something to hang your wreath with
-Fall inspired faux flower
-Hot glue gun with glue
-Total Cost: About $15.00

Start by taking your corn husks and placing them in a large bowl filled with water. Soak for about 10 minutes. By soaking the corn husk you are making it more manageable to work with.

Take your corn husk and cut off about 2 inches from the bottom. This is the narrow part of the husk. Next, tear the corn husk into about 1.5 inch sections.

This is what your pieces of corn husk should look like when you are ready to start pinning them around your wreath.

Start pinning from the inside of the wreath. Each row will have 5-6 pieces.  Overlap the corn husks as you make your way from the inside to the outside of the wreath. Continue this process  for the next row. Overlap the rows so you cannot see the pins. If you want, you can leave more space between your rows then I did . I like my wreaths to be very full so I tightly overlapped my rows.

Keep pinning all the way around. At some point add in your ribbon for hanging. I tied mine around the wreath and kept pinning the corn husk over the ribbon.

Once I finished pinning all the corn husks, I realized I needed to add a little color. I arranged a few flowers to add to the wreath. Once I had the flowers arranged how I wanted them, I glued them on with hot glue.

The end result was just what I was looking for, an elegant looking fall themed wreath that will last the entire season.
