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! :)

In Ireland and Scotland, the first farmer to finish the grain harvest made a corn dolly, representing the Cailleach (also called “the Carlin”), from the last sheaf of the crop. The figure would then be tossed into the field of a neighbor who had not yet finished bringing in their grain. The last farmer to finish had the responsibility to take in and care for the corn dolly for the next year, with the implication they’d have to feed and house the hag all winter. (McNeill)

corn dolly- "Corn" is an agricultural term- meaning the main cereal crop of any area. In this case "corn" is wheat!
