Each Autumn we enjoy placing decorative native corn throughout our home as a way to celebrate and honor the season. Corn was unknown to the Europeans before they met the Native Americans. The Natives gave them the seeds and taught them how to grow it. Today in the U.S.A., more farm land is used to grow corn (60 million acres) than any other grain.
This year we decided to use the corn for more than just decoration. I was browsing Garden Mama's Blog the other day and saw that her family made necklaces out of the corn. My kids thought this would be a great idea, so we got to work.
