Corn Doll Craft

Here are photos that I hope show you how to make a lovely corn decoration or corn doll using 5 heads of wheat. Of course they are normally golden yellow but if you want to you can get green young stems as they are more flexible the first time you try this. So get out into the countryside, if you are in the UK, around July or August and take a few from the edge of a wheat field being careful not to damage the farmers crop. This was called gleaning in the old days!
