3. Cut out the three ears of corn and paint the bubble wrap with yellow ochre paint.
4. Using a generous amount of paint on a brush, dab assorted colors of paint (orange, yellow, brown, rust) randomly on the bubbles to make a colorful cob of Indian corn. Leave some of the yellow ochre bubbles.
5. Allow the paint to dry for about an hour.
6. Punch a hole in the top center of each ear of corn. Position the hole about 1/2" from the edge.

8. Arrange the corn with the center ear slightly lower than the side ears. Gather all the strands and tie a knot just above the three ears.
