I did an easy little craft a couple of weeks ago when I was setting up my fall mudroom and I’m pretty much in love with it. I felt like I was making real authentic country fall decorations now that we live in a real authentic country house, but then it occurred to me that I could have been making these all these years when I lived in the city, I just never thought of it.
Wanna make some with me? OK!
So, just go out back to the cornfield and grab yourself about 6 ears of corn…. What? You don’t have a cornfield out back?
OK, I’m bragging. Just let me have this.
It occurred to me that you can just buy the corn in the husks from the grocery store too and that would be perfect. Peel the husks back but leave them attached. Let the corns dry out for a couple of days, then get down to business.
