Fall Decorating with Natural Elements: Dried Corn

Let’s face it, if you’re on Pinterest, you’ve seen about 100 million pictures of Fall decorating ideas in the last month.
(Ok, so maybe I’m exaggerating a little on the number, but I’m close!)
So many fabulous ideas out there, but I’ve come to the conclusion recently, that I’m not a super “crafty” kind of person. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE seeing what crafty people can create – I’m amazed at what some of you can create with a glue gun and some twine.
I have found that I’m more simple and subtle in the way I decorate. I love using natural elements. I love the rich colors and textures of nature, and I appreciate the environmental factor as well.
So, I’ve decided to put together a few round-ups of inspiration for decorating with natural elements.

I thought this one was pretty clever, and although I’m not a big fan of wreaths, I could totally see this one in my house!

I am actually surprised at all of the cool ideas there were for decorating with CORN of all things! Gorgeous colors and such great texture. I’m definitely using at least one of these ideas in my house. (Any guesses as to which??)

  1. My old house backs up to a corn field. I could have used many of their scraps to make all of these. You have a great collection of pictures. I love to use moss in my decorating.

  2. I love these ideas–they look great, but I personally worry about attracting mice/rats. They can smell corn far in advance!

  3. I LOVE decorating with corn and usually do a corn swag on the front door. Thanks for the other fun ideas! I especially love the corn husk wreath and candle centerpiece. If I can find some inexpensive corn, I’m all over it!!
