Corn Husk Dolls

Remember the wreath I made a couple of weeks ago with the Indian Corn? Well, we took a bunch of the leftovers and made some corn husk dolls. I had used a bunch of the corn stalks to decorate the front yard and I still had a bunch left so I found a great tutorial on corn husk dolls here.

It was pretty fun and quite an easy project. We made several batches of dolls. I looked at different projects on the internet for different ideas. One of the ideas that looked like fun was to make a nativity scene from the corn husk dolls. I just thought I would post this idea for some of you who have corn stalks decorating your yard for Fall. Don't throw away your corn stalks until you have made some corn husk dolls. It would make a great Thanksgiving activity. Happy Thanksgiving.

Hey! why didn't you tell me this before I threw away EVERYTHING on my front porch --thinking it was a mouse nest?! I wanna make a nativity. I think I saw something like that in Mexico. I'll go buy cornhusks if you decided to do it --so invite me over (pretty please??!)
