Maker Monday: Beaded Calico Corn
Fall is here and since it is my favorite season I decided to share this festive beaded calico corn craft with you today. It is very simple to make and can also be used as decoration.
For this project you will need four pipe cleaners and 120 pony beads in the colors of your choice.
Line up all four pipe cleaners, making sure they are even, and then twist them together at the middle.
Space out each end (there should be eight) so that they are in the shape of a star.
Place beads on each of the eight pipe cleaners. I used 15 beads per pipe cleaner and it worked out really well.
Now you want to shape your corn. Start bending each pipe cleaner upwards and twist the ends together to secure the beads. Be sure to fan out the ends so that it looks like a husk.
You can make as many as you want in all different colors.
