Indian Corn Autumn Wreath Craft

Indian Corn Autumn Wreath Craft

I absolutely love making crafts with my kiddos. I especially enjoy making seasonal crafts, autumn crafts in particular. My daughter and I recently decorated our home with some Indian corn autumn wreaths made from paper plates, construction paper, and paint.


  • White and green construction paper
  • Red, orange, and gold/yellow nontoxic paint
  • Paper plate
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Scrap cardboard
  • Cotton swabs


  1. Cut the white construction paper into elongated ovals.
  2. Cut the green construction paper into the shape of corn husks that fit over the white ovals.
  3. Pour some red, orange, and gold/yellow paint on the scrap cardboard.
  4. Use the cotton swabs to dab paint circles on the white ovals. Cover the white almost completely.
  5. Allow the paint to dry thoroughly.
  6. Glue a green husk on the front of each painted oval.
  7. Cut the center from the middle of the paper plate.
  8. Glue the paper Indian corn around the edge of the paper plate circle.
  9. Display the Indian corn autumn wreath.
