DIY: How To Make a Daisy Flower Using Dried Cornhusk

There are many methods in making corn husk flowers. The easier ones just require
rolling, twisting and folding while a more complicated way requires a lot of
gluing, ironing and cutting. The tutorial below is a bit laborious but the result is a sturdy and more realistic-looking flower.

Dried Corn husks
Glue (any type but wood glue is recommended)
Glue gun and glue stick
Flat Iron ( Hair Straightener)
Clothes Iron
Floral Wire
Floral Tape
Thread to tie

1. Prepare the corn husks to be used. They have to be fully dried. 

2. Get two equal sized pieces and glue them together. You can use any type of glue but I recommend wood glue. I use wood parquet flooring glue.

3. As soon as they are glued together, use a clothes iron to flatten them even more. This will
help the husks adhere very well and will also give a smoother finish to the petals.

4. Prepare the center or disk. Fold the corn husk crosswise. Using a scissor, cut thinly about 1/2 inch from the fold (see images 4-5). Use a thread to tie the base.

5. Assemble the flower. Start with one petal. Tie and secure using a sturdy thread.

6. Add more petals until one layer is complete.

7. Repeat procedure and add another layer below.

8. Use a hair iron to curve the petals a little.

9. Attach a stem and wrap with floral tape.
