Simple Indian Corn Swag
This first one comes from my own front door and it couldn't be easier. Often you will find Indian corn already grouped in bunches that you can simply hang right on your front door. I also tied a bit of raffia at the top of the kernels. Any pretty ribbon would work well.
Tip: To get the husks to fan out in a nice matter, simply soak them in some water. Then gently pull them apart the way you want them and set it on a table to dry.
