– Alternate colors, except for the two in the middle – tear one of the husks into thin strips – Use one of your thin strips to tie a knot around your stacked 6 husks together – Pull the corn husks apart in the center and fold them over the tied end – Use another strip to tie around it

– Take your last corn husk that is sitting on the side, and roll it up to form a long tube. – Slide this arm/tube into the split of the dress, sliding it all the way up to the head.

– Tie another strip under the arms – For girl dolls: pull the corn husks into tiny strips from the bottom of the dress to the waist.  – For boy dolls: Split the corn husks in half to make two legs. Use the corn strips to tie each leg.
