I think I might have gotten too big for my britches in the wreath-making department.
I’m pretty sure the root of this problem stems back to a corn husk wreath I made and how proud I was that the first wreath I had ever attempted actually turned out ok.
So, I told myself that making a popcorn kernel wreath would just be a piece of cake compared to the strenuous activity involved in creating a corn husk masterpiece. I mean, you just drop a bunch of popcorn kernels onto some glue, right?
Well, I was quickly knocked off my wreath high horse when I realized that this would require just a little bit more delicacy than I had originally thought. Oh sure, it wasn’t all that complicated.
Just a bit more…well…sticky!
You have to work slowly, taking it section by section and making sure you get complete kernel coverage. And you have to ignore the crows circling overhead eyeing those corn kernels on your deck.
But after you give it a couple coats of white spray paint, you love it so much that it makes it worth the effort…
…and the stickiness…
…and the possibility of reenacting a scene out of a Hitchcock movie as the birds circle overhead.
Now, the funny thing is, instead of humbling me so much that I would bid farewell to my wreath-making days, I found myself making ANOTHER popcorn kernel wreath!
And I’m going to give you a sneak peek of where both wreaths ended up.
You’ll be able to see the rest of my fall living room and tour more of my home as well as Heather’s home all decorated for fall when we participate in the Finding Fall Home Tour next week!

Oh, and by the way, my little ol’ corn husk wreath? The first wreath I ever made?
Well, it just happens to be featured in the latest edition of Cottages & Bungalows Magazine!
Yep…there’s me in all my cheesy glory.
In fact, Heather and I BOTH have projects featured in the October Issue of Cottages & Bungalows! Heather shows how to make her beautiful book page pumpkins.
Maybe this means I’m on a make-a-new-wreath-only-once-a-year system.
Who knows, next year I could be showing you a popcorn kernel corn husk wreath?!
Oh the possibilities! 😉
