Indian corn…the classic autumn door décor.
Here’s a technique to make your corn really pop!
The wimpy “standard issue” bunch available at all farmer’s markets.
Autumn is all about “abundance”, I always buy a dozen ears of corn and arrange in alternating colors for the prettiest effect.
Then use a piece of heavy twine or wire and pull tight! (sometimes it helps to have a second pair of hands hold husk tightly while you pull the string and tie.)
The finishing touch is a thick hank of raffia wrapped around the front and tied in the back to hide the string or wire. Voila! Happy Autumn!
