fall wreath from corn tassles-2

This project most likely won’t cost you a dime to make.
You can’t beat FREE right!?!?

You will need:
A corn field {HA! yep, I said a corn field},
A plastic bag,
A pool noodle {Summer is over so just use an old one you have laying around or go buy one for $1 or less},
and Some duct tape.
Before you to stalking through the corn field off in the boonies, please ask permission. :)
Step 1: Gather four bags full of corn tassels. Scissors work great for this. The tassel is the very top of the corn stalk in case you didn’t know.

Try your darndest to get tassels that are straight instead of tassels that spray all over the place. corn wreathStep 2: After you have a bag full of tassels, you need to make a pool noodle wreath by cutting it and duct taping it together. You can spray paint it if you want, but really no one will see the pool noodle once you are done.
Step 3: Divide your tassels into separate piles depending on their lengths. You can cut down your tassels if you need to.
Step 4: Make a small hole in the noodle with the end of your scissors and slide in your tassel one at a time. Start at the back with your longest {and straightest} corn tassels.

Step 5: Continue layering your tassels into your pool noodle until it is full.

  Corn wreath 1 The only thing that would make this wreath better is if it were MINE instead of my Sister’s. Don’t you think she should make me one? I think so. corn wreath 2 I think a trio of corn tassel wreaths would be darling on my front door to celebrate FALL.
I hope that you have enjoyed this fun {and more importantly basically FREE} idea!  My sister Nat is absolutely amazing, and I love that she shared this project with me.

    Found a corn field, got permission, cut tassels for 2 hrs, got a bee sting, love my huge wreath. I centered it in the peak over the front porch. Did I mention it turned out much larger than I thought it would, this thing is massive! I love it! Thank you nice cornfield owner man (who even asked if I needed something to snip the tops off with) but I had 'borrowed' my hubby's tin snips which were very adequate! I LOVE FALL DECOR!!! I don't love or even like bee stings:(
