Enjoy the satisfaction of creating a beautiful, decorative wreath made from everyday household items. Give thanks creatively!
To make the corn husks for your wreath, soak at least seven plain white paper towels in water. Squeeze out excess. Using Crayola Hassle Free Watercolors, lightly paint over the sheets with yellow, and then add some orange, red, and brown (mix your colors) to create the look of corn husks. Air-dry the towels flat on newspaper.
Cut the paper towels with the grain into approximately 3-inch (8 cm) strips. Cut green, pliable floral wire into 5-inch (12 cm) lengths. Bend each wire in half.
Form a pillow shape with each paper towel. Insert the two ends into the bent portion of the wire. Twist the wire ends. Do this to all but five of the strips. Insert the wires into a 9-inch (20 cm) foam wreath. Overlap pieces so the wires are covered with corn husks.
Crumple aluminum foil to create armatures for the ears of corn. Cover them with white Crayola Model Magic® modeling material. Fresh Model Magic sticks to itself and most surfaces. With the edge of your ruler, indent the modeling material to create corn ke
With Crayola Twistables™ Slick Stix™ Super-Smooth Crayons, color some of the dry kernels to create the impression of Indian corn.
Cut two of the reserved strips of toweling in half and fray the ends. Overlap strips slightly. Wrap one around each ear of corn to create the husk. Tie the ears of corn to the wreath with wire.
Cut the remaining strips of toweling into thirds. Fray one end of each strip. Gather the other end of the toweling together with wire. Insert these into the wreath for added texture.
Twist the last sheet of paper towel to resemble a rope. Bend in half and wire it to the back of the wreath to form a hanger. Happy fall holidays!
