Are you ready for fall?I know it's only July, but it won't be long until corn will be available for your fall decorating. So, I thought I'd take a few minutes and write a short post on how to craft a corn garland. I confess that these are not my photos or my design. They came from the November 1998 issue of Country Living magazine. But, I have made the garlands in the past, and they turn out beautiful. They also store very well, if you keep them in a dry, rodent free place.
That's all there is to it!
These garlands can be crafted any length and/or hung vertically. One year I made a garland that we attached around the door frame. The possibilities are endless. . . .
So. . . .get those corn ears together and start shucking and crafting. . . .fall is not far away. . . .

Oh. I love that. I love fall and thing that's just a fantastic banner/garland....I really want to do this. Not too early. I am dreaming of it already! I am going to pin this!
What a beautiful idea. I love the dried corn. I think this will be nice for fall. Thanks for the idea!
I think I'll make some bunches of raffia-tied corn for my gates. I love this idea! Thanks!
Oh, that's just beautiful! I use to have dozens of old Country Living magazines. I'd hunt all over for them. Wish I'd kept them. Thanks for joining my party!
Your corn garland is so pretty! I don't live in corn county, but maybe I'll be able to find some closer to Fall.
You really are a terrific thrift-er too!
Gorgeous! I'm from the Midwest (corn country) and have never seen this! Where have I been? You're right....the possibilities are endless! We used to hang a threesome on our doors in the Fall but nothing like that garland! It's awesome! I can't wait for Fall!
This summer has been long and hot and I feel like Sept should be here not August...just looking at your corn garlands makes me happy to think of crisp cooler weather :)
What a fun and unique idea!
Wonderfully creative ~ Hot summer so guess we are all looking to cooler weather and then we will complain about the cold ~ funny humans ~ aren't we? (A Creative Harbor)
I grew Indian corn a few years ago and it was so much fun to see the different colors and patterns. :)
oh those are so cute! i'm already trying to figure out where i want to hang one!
i pinned it so i remember that i want to do this!
These are awesome thanks for sharing the process. B
