Step 1. Gather your supplies.

Step 2.

Download our free printable by clicking the “template” button on this page. Print onto card stock.

Step 3.

Wrap bubble wrap once around the cardboard tube. Tip: bubble wrap with the smaller bubbles works best for this craft.

Step 4.

Trim any access bubble wrap and tape at only the ends to secure the bubble wrap.

Step 5.

Paint all around the bubble wrap tube. Use lots of different colors, including yellow, brown, orange, red and purple.

Step 6.

Gently place the painted tube longways on your template. Apply a little pressure and roll the tube across the paper. The paint will transfer to the template and make the kernels of the corn. If some areas don’t have enough paint, you can gently roll the tube backwards to fill in the areas. Let Dry.

Step 7.

Cut out the pieces of corn.

Step 8.

Rip the paper bag into long narrow strips, about 3” wide.

Step 9.

Crumple up the strips into small pieces.

Step 10.

Put the 3 corn pieces together in a group, so that the pieces slightly overlap at the top.

Step 11.

Slightly flatten out the paper strips and staple to the top of the corn to make the husks.

Step 12. 

Wrap tan hemp cord around the top of the corn and tie into a bow.  Hang on your front door or wall.
