Traditional Dried Flower Craft

Thank you to Glynn for sending in this photo of corn dolls and a vase made from straw and lavender. He manipulated some stems from dried lavender bunches into the shape he needed for the dress and body of the doll by soaking in hot water before use. He is obviously a very talented crafter and other designs he has made with dried flowers and corn include a harvest cross and horseshoe.
