corn husks are one of my most favorite autumnal crafting supplies. though i have used them fresh before, i generally buy them from the hispanic/latin market in a big bag for $4.99. last week i found the same bags at our discount grocery for 99 cents!! i bought them all. sorry asheville i can be greedy sometimes. ;)
when i saw these corn husk candle holders, i couldn't wait to make them. literally they moved up my ever growing crafting list that i have little time to allot to already.
it was a fun and gratifying little project. i used a wide mouthed salsa jar from the recycling bin. i attached the husks as in the tutorial above, gluing the tips to the base, gathering them around the jar and securing them with wire. i then tied colored raffia around snugly and removed the wire that had been holding the husks in place. i tucked one of our beeswax coated leaved in the front.
viola! i love it every bit as much as i knew i would!
