Flowers made out of corn husks

I had some corn husks left over from our Fall Feast and it was the perfect excuse to try to make some of the flowers that I used to see in Brazil. I love the way it came out!! Perfect to embellish some Thanksgiving or Christmas gifts!

Corn husks, scissors and glue gun

cut different sizes of flowers and circle/rectangle out of the corn husk
 To make the middle of the flowers, cut a a long and thin piece of the corn husk and roll it and secure it with hot glue.

glue the middle of the flower to the circle and start to glue the petals around it. I started from the outside.
 After I glued all the petals, I trimmed the petals and the circle.
Just love it!
