Fall Corn Decor

How to decorate with dried corn

If you grew our Bloody Butcher or Earth Tones Dent Corn this year, you know how naturally beautiful it is. That’s why using dried corn as decoration is not only easy and inexpensive, but it’s the perfect way to use any leftover ears. If you don’t have leftovers, you can probably find some at the garden center, grocery store, or craft store.

Below are a few ways to tuck dried corn into your fall décor.

Take two or three ears of dried corn with husks still attached, and tie them together with twine where the ear meets the husk. Leave extra twine to tie a loop for hanging, or to tie to a doorknocker. You can also add a decorative bow by tying around the ears just like you would tie your shoes.

Dried corn looks great with pumpkins and gourds. You can put them together in a basket or scatter all three on a mantel or as tablescape.
