Where visions of sugarplums become reality…

Cornhusk Dolls

One of my very favorite hobbies is the creation of these beautiful dolls. Crafted from a basic cornhusk, they become works of art with careful crafting, a bit of time, some know-how, and some skill. 

Instructions and videos are coming!

Instructions and photos are over on Flea Market Decor:



Part I


Part I gets you started with gathering all your materials:

What you’ll need:

  • 1 package cornhusks
  • Paddle wire (floral wire on a paddle)
  • 18 gauge straight wire (floral wire)
  • Styrofoam ball 1″
  • Glue
  • Rit Dye
  • Clothespins
  • Wool for hair
  • Basket
  • Dried florals and decorations for basket

The tutorial will break each step of choosing your cornhusks, soaking them, dyeing them, and then putting your doll together. Once you get to the end of this portion of the tutorial, your doll will be completely constructed. Then you have to wait for her to dry.


Part II


This portion of the tutorial gives you some tips on how to finish your lovely Shamrock Girl.





There are so many types of dolls to make! I specialize in polymer clay, cornhusk, and fabric dolls. Slide shows and patterns will be made available as each class/project is completed.
