These simple autumn DIY projects will give your home some major seasonal curb appeal.

For the garland, use these materials: Cut a piece of 12-inch jute rope to the required length (plus a few extra inches for the drapey effect at the top) and use a hot-glue gun to attach corn husks and silks. (Tamale wrappers can also be used.)

To make the wreath, start with an 18-inch flat-wire frame. Hot-glue corn husks (about 18) and corncobs (approximately 9) in a design. To create dimension, fray the ends of the corn husks.
