Thanksgiving Fall Wreath

It's here! It's here! Our favorite holiday of the year! Well, ok, one of them - but it's that most wonderful time of the year, right?  When Fall hits and every month is full of festivities, decorating, cooking, and celebrating.  Thanksgiving is such a great holiday - no pressure, just getting together with family and friends to celebrate all that we are thankful for.

We are all cozied up in Denver, Colorado currently...busily getting ready for Thursday.  We'll have about 20 people gathered around our table this year, so configuring the seating arrangements is challenging - but we're up for it!  A week or 2 ago, Kacey and I made a fun wreath for the door...

Indian Corn Thanksgiving Wreath
you'll need:
*Wreath frame (12 - 14" depending on how big you want 
the wreath to be; we used a cardboard frame)
*burlap ribbon
*approximately 30 small indian corns
*hot glue and gun

1.  Wrap burlap ribbon around wreath frame to hide cardboard. Hot glue ends to frame.
2.  Position corn around wreath first - don't glue yet.
3.  Slowly hot glue the corn to wreath, trying to keep the opening circle in the center as perfectly round as possible.
4.  Hang your wreath!  Once it's up, you can judge if any of the corn needs to be repositioned to make the center circle more perfectly round.  It's very simple to pop off the corn, reposition, and re-glue.

This also makes a gorgeous centerpiece for a table...just lay flat and position candles and food around it!

I'm off to Hobby Lobby - thanksgiving table decor here we come!
