Corn Husk Wreath

I'm starting to get a little antsy for Fall to get here. And here in Vegas I know there will be no cool, crisp air and colorful falling leaves. So I've been searching blog after blog for cute decorating ideas. I came across this tutorial on how to make a corn husk wreath and had to have one for myself.
This tutorial used unrolled rafia ribbon, but I just used corn husks instead (found in the hispanic section of the grocery store). I cut the husks into strips about 4" long and 1" wide, folded in half, glued the folds together, and then glued the little folded halves onto a straw wreath base.
It was super easy!
Here it is on my front door:

And on my kitchen mirror(not centered, because I'm not keeping it there!):

I think I'm going to make a wreath with coffee filters next! I'm obsessed!
