Pumpkins are, indeed, a symbol for autumn but they are not the only things you can use as decorations. Cork and cork stalks are quite popular and versatile as well. There are lots of things you can do with them. For example:
Use them at the front door.
Take a bunch of corn stalks, tie them together and place them on either side of your front door entrance. Pair them with pumpkins and other decorations.
In wooden boxes.
Dried corn stalks or leaves can also be used in planters and boxes along with tiny pumpkins, dried fruit or flowers.
Have you ever even thought that you could make a corn wreath? Well, it’s an interesting idea and it’s not a difficult project either.
Another interesting thing you can make using dried corn is a garland. You can either let each dried corn hang down and tie twine around it or you can tie the corn horizontally and this way the garland will look like wheat ears.
The fence in the garden or anywhere else on your property could also use some nice decorations this fall. A simple way of giving it a seasonal look is by using corn stalks.
On the stairs.
The base of the staircase is a perfect spot for displaying fall arrangements. It’s also a great spot for hanging corn stalks in a bunch.
Decorate the light pole.
You can basically use corn stalks to decorate anything that’s sitting vertically. For example, you could decorate the light poles you have on your property. Tie corn stalks around them and give them a nice and comfy look.
For the entryway.
Welcome your guests with a seasonal décor on your entryway. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. Even some corn stalks or dried leaves would be enough.
Candles are usually present on the table or on the mantle no matter what so how about you add a little autumn flair to their usual look? Use dried corn and twine.
An eye-catching centerpiece suitable for the Thanksgiving table could be a transparent glass container filled with dried corn and other garden goodies.
