Fall is just around the corner and as I pull out my fall decor from storage, I thought it was time to add a new piece! Nothing screams Fall like an ear of corn and this corn art is made from dried corn kernels, adding a fun 3-dimensional texture. This is a great project for kids as well as adults. If crafting with kids you could let them use elmer's glue to paste the kernels onto a piece of construction paper, or you can use a hot glue gun like I did to create a piece of framed art for your home.
- 8x10 frame (or whatever size you want)
- Green felt
- Dried Corn Kernels
- Thickers (thick stickers...used for scrapbooking) I used THESE ONES
- Hot glue gun
- Mod Podge
Mod Podge the burlap to the back (cardboard) part of your frame (remove glass). Cut corn leaves from felt and start placing your kernels down. When you have them situated the way you want, start hot-gluing them down.
When finished, you can go over the top of the kernels with mod podge to seal it.
Place your sticker letters at the bottom to spell out "Happy Harvest" or "Happy Fall." You can hot glue the letters down for extra reinforcement.
Display your new artwork on your mantel, wall, or buffet table!
