Indian Corn Wreath

This was our harvest of Indian Corn:

My talented back yard neighbor had the cutest wreath on her door last fall and I told her how much I loved it and she told me that she MADE IT. HERSELF. WITH THE CORN SHE GREW in her own yard. So, sometime last winter I received a little brown bag with a few ears of Indian corn for me to plant in the spring to grow my own Indian corn. I was so excited.
So, here I am armed with my glue gun and wire cutters.
My corn turned out a little funny looking, kind of small. Oh well.
I made my wreath in a circle shape. I liked Amara's a little better--
it was a little more random with groups of 2-3 ears of corn grouped together.
I saved a few ears of corn so that I could plant another crop next year and see if I can't make a little better looking wreath.
And this was the final result, before I found a permanent spot on a little table on the front porch for the wreath.

PS Is it politically correct to call it Indian corn. If there is a more correct term let me know so as not to offend anyone with my craftiness. It's just corn.
