  • - Place your corn-cobs too. Click on the photo to enlarge and look at more details.
  • - Hide the branch among the other stuff and let only leaves protrude.

  • - If you do not find corn cobs, you could use silk chestnuts, grapes, mushrooms ... I suggest silk or good-quality synthetic stuff (gourds apart) so you can enjoy your decoration a long time.
