Indian Corn Thanksgiving Favors

Make Indian Corn Thanksgiving favors with this step by step tutorial. They are gorgeous for place cards, too!

It is November –  yay!  I can hardly wait for Thanksgiving!  It is one of my favorite holidays though it tends to get overlooked sandwiched between Halloween and Christmas.  I for one love watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, splurging on a great breakfast and then heading to the kitchen to cook with my mom and the boys.  Since we are heading out to my mom’s house for dinner this year, I thought it would be fun to bring a little treat with me.

Indian Corn Thanksgiving Favors

Make Indian Corn Thanksgiving favors with this step by step tutorial. Stamp the tags with words of Thanksgiving or guests' names for place cards!

Aren’t they cute?  When SweetWorks sent me a box stuffed to the gills with candy, gumballs and Sixlets, I knew right away that the Fall colored Sixlets would be perfect for Indian Corn!  I can just see these waiting by the door to greet your guests before dinner or for them to take with them for the drive home.  If you stamp the tags with your guests’ names, they are the perfect place cards!

Supplies

  • Fall Sixlets
  • Pretzel bags
  • Kraft wrapping paper
  • Scissors
  • Twine
  • Kraft paper tags, alphabet stamps and ink pad

The How-To

Make Indian Corn Thanksgiving favors with this step by step tutorial. Stamp the tags with words of Thanksgiving or guests' names for place cards!

  1. Fill each pretzel bag about half way full of Fall Sixlets.  The pretzel bags are longer and thinner than regular cello bags – I found them at my local craft store and I’ve seen them at Walmart, too.
  2. Use a small length of twine to tie the bag closed and cut off most of the excess bag.  Leave about 1-2 inches so the twine doesn’t slip off.
  3. Cut a 5 inch x 5 inch square from your kraft wrapping paper.  (You could try a lunch bag if you don’t have kraft wrapping paper.) Crumble it into a ball and flatten it back out several times.  This will be the corn husk and crumpling it gives it a more realistic look.
  4. Using your scissors, cut long strips into the kraft paper and stop about 1 1/2 inches from the bottom of the kraft paper square.
  5. Wrap the kraft paper ‘husk’ around the top of the bag where you tied it closed with twine.  The paper husk will wrap around several times.
  6. Use another piece of twine to tie the husk on.  You want this twine long enough to tie and knot the husk on and also to attach the tag, so give yourself a little extra length.  Tie the husk on tightly and make a small knot.  (You could also try hot glue, but I just stuck with twine.)
  7. Stamp words of Thanksgiving on each kraft tag: thankful, bounty, gratitude, etc.  If you are using these for place cards, stamp your guests’ name on the tags.  Tie the tag on and trim any excess twine.

  22. So cute!! I’m hosting a link party on Saturdays- please stop by and link up! It’s at 8 PM called “Found & Foraged.” Hope to see you there! Laura

  23. These are great and so easy to make – just what we need when things are hectic – an easy, clever, colorful party favor. Putting them in a basket with some raffia will give it that “fresh from the farm” look to decorate your table before the turkey arrives, or, as you suggested, have one by each place setting with the guest’s name.

    Found you on Jill’s Kitchen Fun with my 3 Sons.
