Supplies Needed

  • straw wreath form
  • corn husks
  • floral pins
  • hot glue gun + sticks

Add First Layer

Begin by folding the end of one corn husk together (Image 1). Attach to the bottom of the wreath form with a floral pin (Image 2). Repeat this process around the form, slightly overlapping the husks as you go (Image 3).

Add Additional Layers

Using the same technique, attach husks above the previous layer. For a ruffled look, attach further down the husk than the previous ones. Repeat this process to achieve your desired fullness.
