When I take a break from basketry, it is usually to make a wreath. A floral designer by trade, I am always enticed when things are growing and near harvest.

I grew mini ears of Indian corn but the crop....well, was far from successful. The ears were not developed enough to sell on their own, but they look smashing in a wreath...with all of their imperfections, missing kernels and organic goodness!
This wreath was crafted from the husks, stalk leaves, and ears of my little ornamental corn crop. Some of the husks are a natural, pretty burgundy/purple color. I have also used some larger cobs that I have cut down to a smaller size.

This completed wreath is my smaller size corn husk and it measures about 16-17 inches in diameter.
It has been hand tied with wire onto a crimped metal wreath frame.
Hang this wreath just as it is or add a bow of your own.
Either way it is quintessential autumn. Nothing welcomes in the harvest quite like corn husk and a welcoming wreath on the door.



SPECIAL NOTE: My dried flower wreaths are made from mostly locally grown materials from my own gardens and native woodlands.
The flowers, foliage and buds are harvested only when they are ready. This means that there is a limited supply available. This is especially true of the purple Indian corn husks.

SPECIAL MESSAGE ABOUT NATURAL PRODUCTS: Dried flowers and fresh greenery are effected by their surroundings. They are, after all, part of nature...and I usually do not use any preservatives. Fresh greenery that is kept too warm will drop its needles or leaves more quickly. Dried flowers will fade in sunlight and mold in high humidity. Corn husks in particular do not like moisture.

The only way to avoid these kind of things completely is to purchase totally artificial products. I promise to deliver the finest product that I can create, but I can offer no guarantee as to how long it will last in your specific environment or under your care.
And as with most wreaths (except evergreen …who like it really cold), they will stay nicer longer if hung indoors only.


Sorry, because I use all natural plant materials, I am unable to ship these wreaths internationally
