Dolls from Nature: Summer Hollyhock, Fall Applehead

  • I use pumpkin carving tools instead of sharp knives. 
  • No need to use lemon juice and salt. And I prefer red apples as I've found they are less likely to rot.
  • I put mine on bamboo skewers and place in front of a fan. Rotate each day. Decorate when quite dry and keep them in low humidity space and they'll last for years.
