corn wreath

white and green construction paper
yellow, orange, red and brown paper
bubble wrap

we painted our construction paper using pieces of bubble wrap. it gives the look of the individual kernels on a corn cob.

after it was dry, we cut them out and added some green to make the corn husks.

using a piece of cardboard, we made our wreath form and glued on the the corn. i added a piece of twine to hang the wreath from.

  15. I wish you had templates. I've looked all over online for a template I like as much as yours and nothing. I am not artist and couldn't come up with it on my own. Excited to try this tonight with some kids I am babysitting!

  16. I never knew bubble wraps can be used that way! That is an amazing wreath. Bubble wraps are usually deemed for popping as a form of stress reliever for others, but I never knew you can pop it for a past time as well! Great post.
