I’ve wanted to make this wreath for years. And finally… I did! This is an absolutely GORGEOUS, stunning, beauty! So full of autumnal color and texture and so so easy to make! My INDIAN CORN WREATH took about 30 minutes from start to finish. If you make one thing this fall, this should be it! It will look fabulous on your front door, from your walk, from the road… even going by it in a car!!! It’s not shy or demure… but offers a huge does of fall beauty and a hearty fall welcome!
Let’s get started and make a wreath that will last until Thanksgiving… and for years to come!
Today on our podcast Decorating Tips And Tricks we are talking about HOW TO CREATE A FALL VIGNETTE and sharing lots of ideas to put them together. We love vignettes! They are easy to make if you know a few simple tips… and we are spilling the beans today!

I made a quick trip to my local Amish greenhouse to pick up about 40 multi-colored Indian corn! The cost for a 15 inch straw wreath was about $40.00. Not bad at all for all the WOW factor!
This wreath can be made smaller… just decide what would look best on your front door!
Let’s get started!
Here’s a few tips that might help you…
- choose different colored mini corn
- glue the corn next to eachother
- line up the tips of the corn to make the wreath look even
- because not all corn is the same length, vary them
- 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
I’m so thrilled with how this wreath turned out! It really is magnificent!
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”!
