Corn Dollies

Corn Dollies were originally a symbol of fertility, which is one of the reasons they are given at weddings, as well as for good luck. They are a sign of the full and fruitful harvest, and in this way are also considered good luck. These are just a few of the reasons why Corn Dollies remain popular across the globe, with many being currently made in Wales and England.

These are handmade items, and can be adorned with silk flowers at a small additional fee.

P&P Info: Postage for items sent within the UK will be £2.00 each, except for wedding favours which will be £1.00. Additional items are just £1 each. If you plan to order several Corn Dollies, please contact us and we will determine the correct p&p for your order. International postage costs would be an additional fee, as this would depend on location and potage class required.

Please Note: To be 'green' we may reuse and recycle packaging. Although the corn dollies are light, due to their fragile nature they must be really well packaged to prevent damage.

Commissions are also taken for many types of corn dolly and wheat work. Please enjoy our current selection of Corn Dollies below.
