I have memories of being a young girl and going to Tices farm in northern NJ. One of the first crates we would see is a large crate full of Indian corn. My mom always grabbed it to hang on our front porch to signal fall is on its way. So this, fall Indian corn wreath brings up great memories.

Sadly now, this farm is gone but the memories are still with me. Because of the fact I was fairly young I have few memories. However, the memories of the crowds, the smell of apple cider, pumpkins and the Indian corn are real.

I have the memory of my mom hanging the Indian corn outside even though it wasn’t a fall Indian corn wreath. I also have the memory of her having battles with squirrels trying to eat it too. She never gave up fighting with them either and there were times she won too.

Purchasing My Indian Corn A Season Ahead

So last season after making my fall crafts, I did order my small ears of Indian corn to put aside. I kept them in the shipping box safe and sound in a closet so they were ready for this fall. It seemed every time my husband went into the closet he’d say, what’s in this box? My answer, I have no idea. Inevitably, my husband would say it’s heavy whatever it is.

Here is where I say, oh that’s the Indian corn I had bought for a project next fall. It actually became funny to us to have this discussion numerous times until now.

By the way you can purchase this corn HERE reasonably.  Also, you may enjoy seeing this post for another quick idea for fall wreath idea.

Starting To Make My Wreath

Step 1

Because I did have a 12″ metal wreath form, I am using it as my base. Wrapping it in burlap for hot glue and Indian corn.

Step 2

Next, lay out the Indian corn for my fall wreath, generally, to make sure the various colors are spread throughout my fall project. Also, this is a great time to heat up your glue gun.

Incidentally, for this fall wreath I am using 29 mini Indian corn.

Hot Gluing The Indian Corn

Next, I began with gluing an Indian corn at 12, 3, 6 and 9 for my fall wreath. I specifically did this to make sure I had my center points correctly, Also add glue 1/4 inch on the back of each piece.

After this step, I continue to add my Indian corn wreath making sure each ear is adhered to the wreath form. It’s that simple and perfect for fall!

  1. Love this Indian Corn wreath so much, Cindy! It’s really special you have fond memories of kicking off the Fall season at the farm with your family. I’m definitely pinning this and I can’t wait to try to make my own too. Hope you’re feeling better soon. Big hugs, CoCo

  2. I love this wreath so much! It brings back memories of my mom using them in her decor too! What naughty little squirrels trying to eat the corn! Great post!
    Hugs, Karin

  3. Oh…how pretty! I love the husks on them. I don’t often see them that way. My mom used to have Indian corn in the house growing up…great memories!!

  4. Cindy, how funny you mention Tice’s Farm! My parents used to take us there, too. It seemed so far – out in the country, but it was just about a half hour away. I loved the cider bar and doughnuts! Now Tice’s Farm is a strip mall called Tice Corner. Ah, well. Your wreath is fabulous, as is everything you do!

  5. I love this. Great idea to order ahead for the following year. I think I need to do this too as the seasons tend to catch up on me before I’m ready. Thanks for sharing this.
