Greetings and many happy salutations to all folks near and far.
Spring time always awakens in me the desire to make new things and renew my creative side. One of my favorite crafts is doll making. I make Native American type dolls with beaded dresses, tiny three inch dolls for holiday decorating, rag dolls, and corn husk dolls. Corn husk dolls are easy to make and can be very simple to very detailed. They are also very inexpensive to make. If your local grocery store has a barrel where people can shuck their corn cobs, check with the manager to see if you can take home the husks and silk of the corn. You can make a lot of dolls with these husks that would otherwise be discarded.
Corn husk dolls are a delightful way to make gifts, sell in a craft booth or online, make it a family project, or teaching children a new craft.
Here is my latest article from the Folklore and Mythology site at BellaOnline.com about corn husk dolls.
