DIY Dried Corn Centerpiece

LAST UPDATED: Sep 07, 2018 | PUBLISHED: Oct 03, 2012 | By:

Last weekend, we went to the pumpkin patch.  I picked up a couple of bunches of dried corn, not sure yet what I would do with them – I had so many ideas.  I needed a centerpiece for our coffee table ottoman and kitchen table, so I started there. I love incorporating natural elements, especially for fall. It’s so rustic & beautiful. The dried corn centerpiece adds a pop of fall color to our home.

Secure them by tying with twine.

Isn’t that a pretty little line up?  Put a stripe of hot glue on the back of corn and adhere to your cylinder vase.  Hold for a few seconds and continue with each.  Secure by tying a piece of twine tightly around the corn to the vase.  Add your ribbon if desired!
