Hollyhock Dolls

Hollyhocks are one of my favorite flowers. When we were very young, we would make hollyhock dolls from a small stick or a toothpick. You pick the flower and turn it stem side up, that makes the skirt. Then you push a sharp thin stick or toothpick up through the flower center and add one or two seed pods for a body and head. Here is a link to a video on how it is done,


  1. We used to make whole hollyhock weddings - white flowers for the bride, pink for the bridesmaids. We used buds which had a little color showing for the heads.

  2. It's my first time to know hollyhock dolls. How cute! Thank you for sharing.
