A Copy Cat Arrangement Using Corn in the Shuck

I look forward to reading the blog Knock Off Decor where she features bloggers who go to Pottery Barn and other upscale places for ideas to copy.

Today she linked to Infuse with Liz who managed a great Pottery Barn type centerpiece using Indian corn around a huge bowl and a vase with a candle.

Here’s my  ‘use what is at hand’ version in progress on the back of my Mule truck where I put it together straight from the field:

The originals used a large container with decorative corn
fastened to the outside. I put field corn inside the bowl.
A tall cylinder vase sits on a small flowerpot that helps
hold the corn and an upside down pot saucer for the vase.
The vase is filled with dry shelled corn dropped by
the corn picker. I scooped it off the ground to use as filler.

I look forward to finding a dark color candle,
brown or orange to replace the cream color.
I carefully saved loose shucks and corn silks
in case I decide to make corn husk dollies.
Here are the Pottery Barn and Liz versions on Liz’s blog:
