Children can help welcome autumn with this easy to design tissue paper Indian corn decorations. Create these unique Indian corns perfect to hang on the wall or front door. Kids will have so much fun scrunching tissue paper and gluing the small pieces onto cardstock. Make several Indian corns and add an autumn bow to complete the kid’s fall decor craft project.

  • Brown, Orange, Yellow Tissue Paper
  • White Craft Glue
  • Raffia
  • Mini Bowdabra

11. Cut a strip of ribbon and dovetail both ends of the ribbon: fold the ribbon in half lengthwise. Position your scissors at the folded edge of the ribbon and cut the end at a 45 °angle. Unfold your ribbon and you have a professional, finished look to your ribbon tails. Place the ribbon into the center of the Mini Bowdabra.

12. Place a coordinating colored ribbon’s end into the center of the Mini Bowdabra.

13. Form a loop and press the ribbon into the center of the Mini Bowdabra. Continue folding the ribbon and formin
gloops on either side. Cut away ribbon once loops are formed.

14. Scrunch down the ribbon with the Mini Bowdabra Wand.

15. While the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra, thread the two loose ends of the Mini Bowdabra Bow Wire through the loop at the other end.

16. Pull the Bowdabra Bow Wire tightly while the bow is still in the Mini Bowdabra.

17. Gently pull the bow out of the Mini Bowdabra. Separate the two loose ends of the Bowdabra Bow Wire and bring them around to the back of the bow and knot.

18. Tie the bow to the raffia tails. Form a loop at the back with the Bowdabra Bow Wire to hang the project.
