HOW TO MAKE A CORN DOLLY

You will need a small stalk of corn. If you are lucky enough to live in the country, ask a local farmer or thatcher, if you live in town, corn stalks can be bought on-line. A bundle the size in the picture will make about three or four dollies.

Prepare the straw by soaking in warm water for a few hours, or overnight. You need it pliable enough to bend without splitting or breaking. Gather a handful of stems, making sure you have an odd number  to weave - a minimum number of stems is 5, but we recommend a further 6-8 to act as the core. Tie the bundle with a pale-coloured thread or cotton near the base of the corn heads. Gently pull on each stem to make a neat bunch with no stragglers! Select four sturdy-looking stems and bend each one outwards to form a cross-shape (see image). We'll call them A, B, C and D. Starting with the one closest to you and working anti-clockwise (widdershins) around the bundle. Then select another stem (we'll call it E) and bend it down to run parallel to A. If you look closely at the image, you'll see there's a fifth stem under the thumb.

NOW FOR THE TRICKY BIT!...gently take hold of A and fold it over E to lie parallel with B. This will secure E in place. Now take B over A and bend it to lie parallel with C. Continue like that, keeping the basic cross shape of the stems and slowly turning the dolly round as you go. A woven shell shape will form around the core. Keep going until the stems are almost used up. As long as you are careful, you will find that you can put the dolly down without it losing its shape. To make the doll a reasonable length you will need some extension stems to continue working with. Cut the heads off a number of stems (an extra 10 or 15 is about right - (remember you're working in groups of 5) and keep them handy. 

When you need to extend one of the stems, slip the thin end of a new stem into the hollow end of the one you've already worked. You might find you need to trim the end of the old stem. If you adjust the joins correctly you'll find that the next bend in the stem will hold the inner piece in place.

 Once your dolly is as long as you want, you can trim off the excess neatly as shown. To form the "handle" - if you can plait with five stems use them all to create a "ribbon" emerging from the top of your dolly. If you can only plait with three, that's also fine. Just ensure that you include the last stem you bent over so you lock the others in place.

 

ANOTHER TRICKY BIT! Now bend the ribbon over into a loop and secure by threading the cut ends of the straws through the loops formed by your weaving. You might need to ease some of the loops open slightly to do this.

.

Neaten up any stray bits, being careful when you trim them that you don't accidentally cut any of the weaving!

Finish off your dolly by tying a pretty ribbon near the corn heads to cover up the thread you used to tie them together. Now hang Her with pride!  Remember to honour your Corn Dolly during Winter and return her to Mother Earth in Spring.
