Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Add a festive touch to your holiday table by filling a vase with colorful paper cornstalks.


  • Natural-colored raffia paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Yellow poster board
  • Colored tissue paper


1. To make each stalk, cut three 18-inch lengths of natural-colored paper twist (sometimes called raffia paper). Untwist them, then trim the edges to resemble corn husks.

2. Fan out the husks so that they overlap and use a few drops of glue to hold them together.

3. From yellow poster board, cut out an ear of corn (about 10 inches long and 3 inches wide) and glue it atop the husks.

4. Now crumple a bunch of 3-inch colored tissue paper squares to create rounded kernels and glue them to the ear. Lastly, gather the husk bottoms and tie them together with a strip of raffia.
