ARTS & CRAFTS: Corn Wreath


The crisp, cool weather of autumn has arrived! Usher in the season of thankfulness by making these simple, quick, and festive wreaths with your child!

Materials:
White and Green Construction Paper
Yellow, Orange, Red, and Brown Paint
Bubble Wrap
Hot Glue Gun
Cardboard
Twine

Instructions:
  1. To create corn kernels, paint sections of bubble wrap with yellow, orange, red, and brown paint. The more sporadic and multicolored the bubble wrap becomes, the better. Press bubble wrap, paint side down, onto a large sheet of white construction paper, then remove.
  2. Once dry, use scissors to cut the painted construction paper into individual corn shapes.
  3. Next, cut husk shapes from green construction paper, matching the husks and corn in length.
  4. Using scissors, cut a doughnut from cardboard and hot glue the ears of corn into their husks and around the inner edge of the doughnut so that the corn is fanned out, spaced evenly, and covers the cardboard.
  5. Hot glue a loop of twine to the backside of the cardboard for hanging.
