Corn Shuck Flower BouquetDarlene Hellard
22 in stock
Colorful cornshuck bouquet. Artist Darlene Hellard’s mother-in-law taught her to make a cornshuck wreath in 1981, then her aunt who had learned to make cornshuck flowers by watching a program on Kentucky Educational Television, showed Darlene how to make her first flowers. Darlene used to search through her neighbors corn cribs to gather corn shucks to bleach and dye for her flowers. Today she buys shucks commercially and uses fabric dyes to achieve her different colors. Her flowers are made by first tying a flower center onto a floral wire stem. Then each flower petal or bud is cut to pattern, shaped and tied individually before being assembled and tied again onto the stem.
Each bouquet contains 14 pieces. You will receive a rainbow of flowers including daisies, tulips, daffodils and even dried okra. One bouquet will fill a small vase. Purchase multiple bouquets for a fuller look.
