String Indian corn to make harvest necklaces, bracelets or garlands.
This craft is suitable for older children as sewing needle sticks are a hazard
thread (upholstery thread is rather sturdy, we also used the stretch floss (TM name Stretch Magic) for bracelets
Scrape the kernels off of some ears of corn, the rich, jewel-toned kernels are very pretty.
Soak in warm water until soft enough to pierce with a needle (this took 3 days and was still a bit tough so make sure you have a thimble handy)
Thread in desired pattern and let dry.
For Children's crafts an activities, the August/Mabon 2002 issue of The Crone's Cottage has some great ideas!
