Corn Husk Wreath for Autumn

Okay, so it's not finished; here's why. I started this wreath with an idea in mind from a wreath a friend had made many years ago. I have another way to use the corn husks, actually two, that I got from Better Homes & Gardens, again years ago. But oh no, I wanted a fluffy wreath like my friend had. So I thought I would try an "easier" way to put one together, instead of using straight pins to tack each strip to the form I decided to wrap twine around and catch each strip as I go. So far it's taken me 3 hours of time investment.
Yeah, I didn't think this one out too clearly as I haven't come to the end yet and need to figure out how to wrap the rest on and have the first strips overlap the last ones. Plus, I ran out of corn husks. So off to the store I go to get more, and when I finish with all the added touches I'm thinking about, I will share. I will also make the other style so you can have two versions to hopefully spark your interest. Mom says I should add glitter, I would have never thought of that, but I do have some pretty Martha Stewart glitter in various shades of Autumn richness, so I may toy with that a bit. For now, it's time to go shopping!  If you have a moment, take a look at my other blog and my newest gourd creation, Spooky Dude
