Apple Head Dolls

Author:  GSLC

Materials needed:
lemon juice,
jar or string,
long necked bottle,
cloves or black beads,
rice or small pearls,

Use any kind of apple. Leave the stem in place.
Peel it carefully. Use a knife or spoon to carve
the apple. Carve eye sockets, nose and mouth.
As the apple dries it will shrink and the facial
features will look different. If you want wrinkles
in the forehead put a few cuts up there.
After carving, paint the head with a mixture of
lemon juice and salt to bleach the skin color.
For drying either attach a string to the stem
and hang, or put a stick in the bottom of the
apple and place in an open jar. Allow to dry in
a warm place for a few weeks. When the head
is dry add cloves or black beads into the eye
sockets. If you want teeth, glue little pearls or
pieces of rice into the mouth area. Add color
to the face with makeup, or light watercolors.
Glue the head onto the bottle. A small dish
soap bottle filled with sand works good. Cover
the bottle with fabric and add arms and hands
if desired.
