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’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!
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
READY TO MAKE AN INDIAN CORN WREATH
Let’s get started!
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
I’m so thrilled with how this wreath turned out! It really is magnificent!
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”!
