Corn-and-Husks Wreath

Channel a blazing sun with this fall wreath. Choose Indian corn with multiple colors but similar lengths. Gently pull the husks so they point straight out from the tops of the cobs. Hot-glue the ears of corn to an 8-inch straw wreath. Fan out the husks for a truly impressive display.

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
