    Traditional crafts using dried wheat, dried lavender and other dried flowers

    A few weeks ago I published a post mentioning Glynn who likes to make traditional corn dollies from dried wheat, into which he sometimes incorporates some dried lavender stems.

    He has recently sent me some more lovely photos of his work which I would like to share.

    A tip he told me when making corn dollies is that the dried wheat stems are more pliable when damp, so best used this way for tight folding such as the plaits in the  bottom image.

    This “sweetheart” design is my favourite using corn and dried lavender as it is slightly more abstract than the others.
