The rustic beauty of natural wreaths are unmatched, especially a corn husk wreath. Corn husks are not only gorgeous, they are easy to work with. If you love to eat Mexican food and you eat tamales, corn husks are what the tamales are wrapped in. You can get them in your grocery store in the Mexican food aisle or at your local farmers market. If you live on a farm or know someone who grows corn, simply ask to use the corn husks. When making your wreath, be sure to ask your kids for help. They will be delighted and can even offer some pointers. This wreath doesn’t require many materials but has a lasting impact. You can easily make it by following these instructions.

- If your corn husks are still attached to the corn, remove them. Make sure they tear nicely. If they don’t, cut a straight line at the top of each husk to ensure it lies flat on the wreath form.
- Apply the hot glue to the top part of one corn husk and attach it to the wreath form.
- Repeat the process for the other corn husks. Place them on different spots on the wreath for added impact.
- You can use corn husks of different sizes. Tuck those that stick out with hot glue.
- Place the corn husks around the wreath form or on the front part. But ensure the visible part is completely covered.
- Once done, look at your wreath to ensure the form is not showing.
