CORN HUSK DOLL MAKING CLASS
This summer I had the pleasure of teaching three young friends how to make corn husk dolls. We choose the ideal location, outside in the backyard so we could make as much of a mess as we wanted. First we soaked the corn husks to make them nice and pliable, then the heads were made leaving extra husks at the top to make fancy hairstyles later. A simple body with arms was formed and then the husks were wrapped around the body to form a long skirt. The girls had great fun decorating their dolls with dried flowers. This adventure was one of the highlights of my summer.
