Valentine's Day Wreath

This week I made a new wreath for our front door. I used corn husks left over from making tamales (more on that later this week!) dyed with Rit dye and stapled to a wreath form. I wrapped ribbon over the staples after the husks dried. I got the idea from here. I found that the corn husks that had been previously soaked dyed better than dry husks, even after several days in the dye. 
I think it's pretty on the door, even if Jonathan thinks it shouldn't go up until Feburary:)
