Embrace your inner hippie with this one-of a kind bracelet made entirely of cornhusks!




I was in the grocery store, talking with my mum about how i needed to come up with something totally random for this contest.  we happened to be buying corn. 

Whn we got home, i tore some cornhusks into strips, knotted the strips together, and then started knitting!  i think i used size 11 needles.


when dried, it looks like straw, but without the scratchyness!

That does look really nice, and incredibly unique! Is it really brittle? Maybe you should dip it in some sort of varnish so you can keep it forever and ever and ever and ever! Grin
