Ready for a good ol' fashioned craft? Making shrunken apple head dolls is a cheap and easy activity to get everyone laughing! You just need a little patience while they shrink, but it is so worth the wait!
When I was a small Child, an old Neighbor Lady named Mrs. Callings had an old Couple (Husband/Wife) sitting in rocking chairs with glasses (bent wire) on Apple Head dolls! They were so REAL looking to me as a Child.. I've made one about 12 yrs ago, but didn't like how it turned out...now gonna try it again!!! ;))
The apple doll is a curious little being. No two are alike. The apple is peeled. The face is carved. It is left to dry, sometimes for several weeks. The resultant facial characteristics are unique to each ‘apple person’. Sometimes, I look into the mirror; and, I see an apple doll. Other times, it's just me! :)
