How to make a corn dolly. Note: Wet the corn husks first so they don't break. Warm water until pliable. I usually use red yarn to tie things, but you can use corn husks too! :)

It was believed that the corn spirit lived amongst the crop, and the harvest made it effectively homeless. Therefore, hollow shapes were fashioned from the last sheaf of wheat or other cereal crop. The corn spirit would then spend the winter in their homes until the "corn dolly" was ploughed into the first furrow of the new season.
