Good Morning Everyone!
I’m Gina from Kleinworth & Co. You may have seen me here before when I guest co-hosted with Taryn, Jaime & Lucy for The Inspiration Gallery a couple weeks ago. I am absolutely thrilled to be guest posting here today in Taryn’s beautiful space.
Now that we are at the end of the second week in September I am in a full fall mindset. This means filling my home with rich warm colors, baking with lots of cinnamon in every recipe & corn husks. I love to decorate this time of year with corn husks. I decided today I would share with you these Corn Husk Fall Table Settings I made. I had made these little name cards & I wanted something to attach them to. I originally thought about a votive or something like that- but I kept coming back to ideas that laid flat on the plate instead. That’s when I decided on making these mini-sprays out of corn husks.
These are really so simple yet add just the right amount of rustic warmth for your table this time of year.
-Take 3-4 husks & soak them in a bowl of water for several minutes to soften.
- Pull out of the water & shake & pat off excess water with a paper towel.
- Lay the husk one on top of the other in a stack- alternating the wide ends with the narrow ends.
- Take your twine & wrap around the center & tie.
-On each end, start pulling 2-3 inch tears into the wide ends of each husk to give a frayed look.
-Pull & fan out each end to give fullness.
-Repeat for each one you want to make.
-Allow to dry flat. Ends will curl & twist on their own as they dry.
(Note- I put mine in the warm garage to speed up the process)
So that’s it. I told you it was easy & oh so festive!!
Thank you so much Taryn for sharing your space with me today. It’s been a pleasure!
