cornhusk wreath


One of our biggest successes in the garden this year was growing corn.  We got this seed from Montana, called Painted Mountain.   We haven’t really been able to grow a sweet corn for eating, but this variety seems to thrive.  We’re going to grind it into cornmeal once all the ears are dry.

The timing was perfect, because we’ve been studying Indians and one activity we wanted to do was corn husk crafts.  We decided to turn those pretty husks into a wreath.

We just twisted them around a piece of wire, holding them on with some twine.
