Flower Doll


Hollyhock in the wild

This is the best reason to grow hollyhocks! My Mom used to do this when we were little. Her grandmother taught her how.

First, cut a flower and a bud,

Then push a pin up the inside of the flower and into the bottom of the bud, that small bright point is the head of the pin,

Squeeze the two together to make it look like an old-fashioned lady in an old-fashioned dress,

Pushed together

Push them together so you can’t see the pin

Then put water on a plate and float her on the water so she can dance.

Let her dance
