Halloween Dolls: Soft sculpted Halloween dolls are one of the first true pieces of American folk art! Using whatever was at hand, an old piece of fabric, straw, twigs and branches, buttons from a shirt no longer usedﾅﾅ…these were the perfect ingredients for a handmade doll. Now, Halloween dolls are produced using these same ideals but in greater quantity for mass appeal! Pumpkin heads and witches are the main themes of the Halloween dolls. They are dressed in spooky fabrics, lace and embellished with feathers and boas and party hats!
