Corn Dollies

Monday, January 17, 2011
This weekend me and the family sat down and made Corn Husk Bride Dollies. We will leave this on the altar, decorating it in different ways over the seasons, until Mabon. Which in my family coven's tradition is the time that the Goddess goes into the Underworld in search of the missing Sun.

The instructions at the link below call for ten of the corn husks, we wound up using only five for each of the dolls. Yes we made one for the altar and some for the kids to play with it. Speaking of the corn husks, they only need to be soaked around five minutes.

I also took the time to redecorate our wreath and the altar in preparation for Imbolc. Here is a small list of different kind of silk flowers that you can use to decorate with.
  • Forsythia
  • Crocus
  • Daffodils
  • Snowdrops
  • Daisies
  • Almost anything that invokes a Spring feeling in you
Here is the link to the instructions. Hope you enjoy!

Blessed Be!
