Decorative Indian Corn Craft

A few weeks ago I picked up a decorative Indian corn at the grocery store.  I got to thinking it would be fun to do an Indian Corn craft with the kids.  This is what we ended up doing.

I cut "fall colored" tissue papers into squares.  We didn't have any brown so I watercolor painted a bit of white tissue paper and let it dry.  Next year I will let the older kids watercolor their own sheets of white tissue paper to get a "marbled" effect, much like the real kernels of corn.
We placed the eraser part of a pencil in the center of a piece of tissue and gently twisted the tissue.  Then dipped the tissue in glue and placed it on our corn cut-outs.
These are the beautiful corns that we made.
For the leaves, we took a large sheet of cream colored construction paper, spritzed it with water, crumpled it up, then laid it flat to dry.  After it was dried, we then cut out corn leaves and glued them to the back of our corns.

The kids had fun with the different colors of tissue paper!
That's all for today, until next time have a happy, crafty day!
