Instructions
  1. Cover work area with plastic and gather supplies.
  2. Fill container with 1 gallon of hot water and half a bottle of well-shaken All-Purpose Liquid Black dye, mix well.
  3. Take one dried corn husk and carefully dip a third of the wide end into the dyebath until desired color is achieved. For more saturation, add more dye and leave the corn husk in the dyebath for longer.
  4. Lay corn husks to dry on sheet pans lined with paper towels. Repeat process to dye the rest of the corn husks and allow them to dry for 2-3 hours until they’re slightly damp.
  5. Layer damp cornhusks on top fo the wreath form and pin them in place to continue drying. This helps to reshape the cornhusk to fit the wreath.
  6. Once cornhusks are completely dry, unpin the corn husks and rip them in half so the strips are smaller and easier to work with.
  7. Adhere corn husks in place with the bigger end towards the middle of the wreath using Hot Glue Gun. Work your way around the wreath until it’s entirely covered.
  8. Add additional layers to get the look you want to achieve.
  9. Bend the ends of corn husks up and down for variation and movement.
  10. Flip the wreath over and pin down any edges sticking up to make it neat and tidy.
  11. Create bow with ribbon and adhere to the wreath as shown.
  12. Use the wreath hanger to display your creation.
