It’s Fall, y’all.
And while it certainly doesn’t feel like it here in the “Sunshine State”, it doesn’t seem to curb the basic white girl desires.
Boots & Pumpkin Spice Lattes – comin’ right up.
I saw this idea floating around Pinterest moons ago and knew that I needed to recreate it. Insert the birth of this blog and, low and behold, I now have a reason to get crafty on the regular.
I don’t remember what my excuse was before, but I am sure it was an equally compelling argument and as justified as the above. Yep.
Step One: Gather Supplies
- Indian Corn
- 12″ Craft Ring
- Hot Glue Gun
I ordered my Indian corn off of Etsy because I wasn’t motivated enough to hunt it down locally. It arrived beautiful and in perfect condition. And I never even had to leave my couch.
As it turns out, though, you can find this in your average, run-of-the-mill grocery store or perhaps your local farmers market.
Whatever works best for you.
Step Two: Figure Out Your Strategy
I piled the dried Indian Corn into four piles.
- Pile #1: More of a burgundy.
- Pile #2: Yellow.
- Pile #3: Yellow/black/brown.
- Pile #4: More of a deep purple bordering black.
I, then, lined the corn on the craft ring to have a visual on my pattern. Yes, this is all a clear indicator of my propensity to be anal retentive.
You do you.
Find a pattern and a flow that matches the look that you’re going for.
Step Three: Start Hot Gluing
Burn yourself as many times as possible. It’s tradition.
Depending on the size of your corn, around ¼” to ½” should hang over into the inner circle of the ring.
Basically, you want to ensure that the corn will line up close enough together that only a minimal portion of the craft ring will be visible once your project is complete.
Step Four: Time to Hang It Up!
Now all that’s left to do is to snap photos and gloat on social media.
