BEAUTIFUL INDIAN CORN WREATH

This wreath will look fabulous on your front door and will be seen from your walk, from the road, and even going by it in a car!!!

It’s not shy or demure but offers a huge dose of fall beauty and a hearty fall welcome!

SOME THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW

Let’s get started and make a wreath that will last until Thanksgiving… and for years to come!

FALL WREATH ON AN OPEN FRONT DOOR

I made a quick trip to my local Amish greenhouse to pick up about 40 multi-colored Indian corn!

The entire cost for this Indian Corn Wreath was about $40.00. Not bad at all for all the WOW factor!

I used a 14-inch straw wreath to make the Indian Corn Wreath and it really fills up almost my entire standard size door!

If you want a smaller wreath then use a smaller straw wreath.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE AN INDIAN CORN WREATH

You will only need a few things to make this magnificent wreath…

  • a straw wreath for the base (see the what I used HERE)
  • mini Indian corn
  • hot glue

That’s it!

Here’s a few tips that might help you…

  • choose different colored mini corn
  • glue the corn next to each other
  • line up the tips of the corn to make the wreath look even
  • because not all corn is the same length, vary them putting different size corn next each other.
  • if the corn husks break off from the corn, hot glue them back on
  • keep the plastic wrapping on the straw wreath so it’s not messy

HOW TO KEEP AN INDIAN CORN WREATH

To keep the wreath from year to year it must be stored in a “mouse-free” zone or double bagged in a thick industrial garbage bag and tied together tightly! If you hang the wreath outside, make sure it it totally dry before putting it in any plastic bag.

I’ll be keeping mine for a few years, so I’ll make sure to make it “mouse proof”!

  1. I love the corn wreath and how it pops on your door. The instructions look easy enough for an amateur like myself, so I may just give it a try this year. Thank you for the instructions and tips for storage.

  2. What beautiful colors God created for us to enjoy in nature’s bounty! The Indian corn provides a spectacular “show” of the vibrant fall color palette, and the texture enhances the beauty. If I was a mouse, I would love this wreath, too!!!

  3. The Indian corn wreath is stunning especially against the dark door! And I can’t believe it is so easy to do! Thank you for sharing this beauty!

  4. one other warning is birds might eat the corn too. last year i saw a post that she made a corn wreath the post a few days later and said the birds eat it.

  5. Beautiful wreath! If you decide to store it till next year, be sure to seal the bag. We stored Indian corn in our attic one time in an unsealed bag and the rodents loved it. 🙂

  6. I am on the hunt for mini indian corns so that I can make this asap. I remember this post from a few years ago it seems and I never got around to making it then so I it is on my must do now for sure.

  7. Wow, Yvonne, that is stunning! And it looks easy enough even for a rank amateur. 🙂 I also love that gorgeous Give Thanks pillow in the basket. Do you happen to have a link for that? Thanks, and God bless.

  8. Yvonne,
    I have read all of your posts, and you have skills when it comes to making wreaths , just wanted to let you know. I just painted my front door black this spring and your fall Indian corn wreath would be perfect. please enter me into the drawing.
    Thanks, Denise

  9. What an easy and beautiful fall wreath idea! It looks fabulous against your dark door, too. Thanks for sharing your easy tutorial with us at Merry Monday this week!

  10. Beautiful! I love making different wreaths for our front door; our neighbors always compliment me on them! This will be my next wreath project; it will be gorgeous on our black door. One question…they are mini Indian corns; approximately how long are they?

    1. The wreath is made with mini Indian corn and it has lasted about 6 years so far. Just be careful though if you have a basement or a garage the mice might think it is a snack.

  11. I think this wreath will be lovely over my mantle and bring autumn colors in nicely. Hope it’s as easy to make as you make it look! Very creative.

  12. Absolute LOVE the Indian Corn Wreath! I will be making them for my double front doors as soon as I can find the corn! The doors are a brown color and nothing ever stands out. I use white a lot to be seen from the road. I think these are going to be spectacular! Can’t wait for fall!

  13. Please let me know where I can purchase your pineapple door plaque. I love it and can’t seem to find one. Thank you.

  14. Thanks so much! I am in CA and so not the same vibe. Wanted a wreath that said fall but felt appropriate in NorCal. This is perfect!!
