Mother Nature knows how to dazzle with color in Autumn. The leaves, the light, and even the corn seems in full display. I love the soft greens of spring and the joyous colors of summer but the deep rich tones of Autumn resonate with me in a deeper way.
When I saw a pile of flint corn at the farmer's market I had to bring them home with me.
I had planned to wire them to a grapevine wreath of an appropriate size, that I was sure was in my workspace, but of course that wreath was nowhere to be seen. I had two wreaths, one large and one small, so I made do. Instead of painstakingly wiring the corn to the wreaths, I opted to glue gun it. (I was tired, it was a long day, it happens)
The finished wreath is quite large and I plan to hang it up on the side of the house. It will go well with the big old pumpkins that I'll be pulling in from the garden today.
Of course, I think it looks fetching with my little sunflower in the middle too.
Are you enjoying Autumnal color where you are?
