DIY Cornstalk Fall Wreath
More fall goodness in one week? You bet! I am excited to participate in a fun fall bloghop today! Today I want to show how I made a DIY cornstalk fall wreath. This bloghop is a fun way to see how many other talented bloggers create simple and elaborate fall decor ideas.
When I was trying to think of something I could share for this fall bloghop, I really wanted to make a wreath. But, knowing me, I don’t just make a simple run of the mill wreath. No, I wanted something different.
Welcome to our monthly Creative Blog Hop!

So, I started to brainstorm about what I had around my house that I could use, since that is my first go to whenever I am making anything. That is when I glanced outside in my backyard, and saw them….our cornstalks. They had been ripped of their corn already, and were sitting there just looking dormant. Yet still so beautiful, especially when the sun was shining through them. I thought there was something they could be good for.
Have you ever seen corn stalks in the summer when the tops bloom and those feather like tops start to show? Well, they stay all summer and into the fall. And they are just captivating in my opinion.
I decided I needed to use them. As I trudged through the field of cornstalks, I also decided the leaves needed to be used. Lets not waste anything shall we?
So I gathered up a bunch of both, and ran to the house.
Making my DIY Cornstalk Fall wreath
Here is what I used for this DIY cornstalk wreath:
This post contains affiliate links for your convenience
- wreath form
- hot glue gun
- floral wire
- fall foliage (optional)
I started with these piles of cornstalk pieces.
And these silky cornstalk tops.
I took the tops and began tying them to the wreath with floral wire. I also added just a bead of hot glue to keep them from coming loose.
I also weave them into my grapevine wreath form, just to keep them more secure.
I took the corn stalk tops all the way around the wreath form. This is the base of the wreath.
Next I took some of the corn stalk leaves, and created a bunch of bundles, tied with floral wire.
I layered them, and gathered them about 1/4 of the way up the leaf.
I then tied them to the wreath, on an angle, to hide the rest of the wreath form.
Once the corn stalk leaves completely filled the wreath, I thought about adding something else, but I really liked the simplicity of this DIY corn stalk fall wreath.
Its such a pretty wreath!
It is simple, and it is all my favorite things. It was made from found items in my yard. It makes a statement too.
I love the texture of the cornstalk tops. They have this wheat like look to them, however they are soft, and slightly wild.
I love making non traditional wreaths, and this DIY cornstalk fall wreath is definitely one!
Make sure you save this for later!

Wow, what beauty you created. Those blossoms look awesome no the outside of the wreath against the green leaves. If you bought that in the store it would cost more than $50, so lovely and it fits perfectly on the wall with that fabulous foot board

Had to leave you a note, this is so creative! Lucky you living in the country. I visit our VT place for a part of the year and when I’m renovating (like now). Love corn fields and the wreath you imagined is perfect for fall 🙂
Thanks Wendi! I love our corn fields!
That is so pretty! Amazed you used “real” corn to make this wreath. Think we’re all so used to buying everything at the craft store, lol! Visiting from DIY & Recipe Linky Party.
