{Fall} Decorating With Corn


Photobucket

Fall has only just begun, so you have plenty of time to spruce up your home with a little fall decor. This Indian Corn Garland is an easy DIY project that would look perfect on a mantle, draped across a buffet or dessert table or even hung over your front door.

Directions {From BHG}
* Cut rope two feet longer than the area in which you intend to hang the garland.
* Then twist screw-eye hooks (with openings about the same size as the rope diameter) into the tops of mini ears of corn, one per ear.
* Bend corn husks into loops and hot-glue the pointed ends together.
* Thread the husks and ears onto the rope and hang.

Here is a different kind of corn garland; a garland using candy corn! This would be a fun project to include the kids on. And I'm sure everyone wouldn't mind eating a few while working!

Directions {From Woman's Day}
* Thread monofilament fishing line (found at hardware stores) onto a needle and poke it through the candies, avoiding areas where the colors meet - corn breaks easily at these points.
* Hang using cloth tape.
