Straw Appliqué.

Straw appliqué is a regional tradition that imitates European marquetry. Typical designs include geometric motifs and Christian devotional images. The tradition has evolved from setting cornhusk in blackened piñon sap varnish on wooden crosses (encrusted straw) to the early 20th century revival of adhering golden straw onto painted wood with commercially-prepared glue, and today with multi-colored straw applied to a variety of forms, including Christmas ornaments.
