This is a great craft to share with young crafters. Yarn dolls are a perennial favorite 
with kids of all ages! If you can wrap yarn you are on your way to having a doll. Not only that,
but it’ll give him or her something to play with and be proud of. And, you can make
clothing and hair for the doll when you are done. This is a child friendly workshop.

Cornhusk FlowersWednesday, August 08, 2018 09:30am - 11:30am

Bring some of the delicate beauty of summer blossoms to your fall decorating by making flowers from the husks of dried corn. 
Cornhusk lends itself to many variations when it comes to making flowers. You can make a sunflower, poppy, marigold or rose
cornhusk. You need very simple material other than cornhusk to make flowers, most of which is present in every house.
You can use paint or dye to make colored flowers or you use the natural color of husk. This is a child friendly workshop.
