Description

Corn shuck dolls are a link to our past.  Corn was a vital food for the Native Americans and the dried shucks were sometimes used to make dolls for children to play with.  This use of natural materials was shared with the European settlers of the Appalachian region, where the shucks were also used for braided rugs, hats, and even mops.  This corn shuck angel can be used as a Holiday tree topper, or can be hung as an ornament with the addition of a ribbon or filament line tied around the waist.  It can also be used for a whimsical decoration in any room, as well as a sweet decoration for packages, or a good luck charm.

I fell in love with corn shuck dolls in 1975, when I learned how to make one in an Appalachian Studies class during my senior year of High School in Oak Ridge, TN. I have been making the dolls ever since that day. I am a full-time craft artist, and have been a member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild since 1989.
