Thanksgiving Craft: Paper Indian Corn

I always loved these tissue paper crafts as a kid. Easy to do with simple supplies, but looks great!   Something fun to do over the weekend! 


Natural-colored raffia paper
Yellow poster board or construction paper
Colored tissue paper


To make each stalk, cut three 18-inch lengths of natural-colored paper twist (sometimes called raffia paper). Untwist them, then trim the edges to resemble corn husks.

Fan out the husks so that they overlap and use a few drops of glue to hold them together.

From yellow poster board, cut out an ear of corn (about 10 inches long and 3 inches wide) and glue it atop the husks.

Now crumple a bunch of 3-inch colored tissue paper squares to create rounded kernels and glue them to the ear. Lastly, gather the husk bottoms and tie them together with a strip of raffia.
