  • Scissors
  • Glue

  1. To make each stalk, cut three 18-inch lengths of natural-colored paper twist (sometimes called raffia paper). Untwist them, then trim the edges to resemble corn husks.

  2. Paper Indian Corn Step 2

    Fan out the husks so that they overlap and use a few drops of glue to hold them together.

  3. From yellow poster board, cut out an ear of corn (about 10 inches long and 3 inches wide) and glue it atop the husks.

  4. Now crumple a bunch of 3-inch colored tissue paper squares to create rounded kernels and glue them to the ear. Lastly, gather the husk bottoms and tie them together with a strip of raffia.
