I seriously LOVE THE FALL. I love the weather, the colors & decorating for fall. One thing I try to do every year is make a new Corn Husk Wreath. Something about the warm, earthy tones of the husks just screams fall decorating to me. This time I decided to play with the colors just a little & soak some in some navy blue fabric dye. Colored them quite nicely & did exactly what I was hoping. I love the faded blue with the wheat like tones.
Now for the moment I’m showing this to you on the front door. I think with it’s size I will actually be hanging it above the mantle. But I wasn’t quite ready to completely decorate the mantle for fall. I’m still working on several things before that can happen. Soooooo- I hung it on the front door for photo purposes. I have some playing yet to do- so we will see where this ends up for the season.
I used a large wire wreath form I picked up at Michael’s. I won $100 gift card for them. You may remember me posting an image on Instagram of the creepy witch. That was the day I went to spend my gift card. I was so good. I actually- with tax- came in at $100.19. Pretty good huh??!!! I was very mindful about what I put in my cart & thought about just how I would use each thing. I had so much fun & really stocked my craft cabinet with all sorts of project staples that will last me through the season.

This was a fairly simple wreath to make. I dyed the blue ones ahead of time & allowed them to dry. Then I soaked the natural colored ones in a bowl of water so they would be bendable. I layered 3 at a time- with a blue one in-between the natural ones. Bunched them at one end & I took a piece of twine & tied them to one side of the 4 wire wreath form. Then I did the same for the outer side. Once tied on- I tore the ends in strips to fray them. Continued with those steps until they all overlapped each other. Once I had it all together I hung it in the warm garage to help it dry a little quicker. (I’m super impatient & I wanted to get the pics done) It wasn’t quite as full until it dried & the ends curled & became stiff again. I love how it turned out.
The best part is that I already crossed one thing off my Fall Bucket List- YAY!
