What You Need:

  1. Corn cobs complete with their husks.
  2. Cloves.
  3. Leaves.
  4. Dry seeds.
  5. Flowers.
  6. Branches.
  7. Skewers.
  8. Woll yarn.
  9. Glue.
  10. Tooth picks.
  11. Threads.
  12. Sewing needle.
  13. Raffia.
  14. Fabric dye (optional)


How to Make It:

  1. Pull the husks down so you can make doll’s clothing from them.
  2. Look at the materials you have. Think about the faces you can make using those materials. For example, the branches can be noses, seeds and cloves can be used as eyes or teeth. Leaves and wool yarn can be hair. Flowers can be head ornaments or necklaces.
  3. You can hang your corn cob dolls by giving them threads to hang them with. Or insert skewers at the bottom of the cobs so that you can put them in the vase.


More Idea!

If you want your dolls’ clothes in colors, you can soak the husks in regular fabric dye overnight using your favorite colors. Let them dry in the sun first before you create your dolls.
