One of the two carved, dried apple head dolls I am creating to show off the wool yarn I am making/selling. This craft is so very old, but the faces have such character it is worth resurrecting!
Hello Lindy I think your Redhead is interesting! It would be great for Halloween! Bit scary if you shine a torch under her chin! Ha! How did you made the dried apple head? I have never seen this done before. Well done for making your own wool yarn too.
Thanks, Quine! The first two I carved I tried to dry them outside. Not a bad idea, unless you live where I do...the deer devoured them!
I put links on my blog, one for the tutorial I learned from, and one with tons of photos of various apple doll heads. Have fun, and put some pix on here when you get your Halloween groove on!
I just love these apple dolls...."an old granny that was tired of her grey hair & went for it " :>)
Edyth. exactly! I took a pic of this doll with snow white mohair coif, but she just insisted on being a red head for this venue.
I love it! I used to do apple head dolls for kitchen witches years ago. Love her hair!
Carrie2- I had totally forgotten about Kitchen Witches! How fun!
