You could make a Imbolic grain bride dolly too...To make this simple doll, you'll need some corn husks -- and clearly, in January or February, you probably won't be able to find a lot of those growing outside. Check your grocery store's produce section to get husks. If you're using dried-out husks, soak them for a couple of hours to soften them up (fresh husks need no special preparation). You'll also need some yarn or ribbon, and a few cotton balls.

Take a strip of the husk, and fold it in half. Place two or three cotton balls in the middle, and then twist the husk, tying it with string to make a head. Leave a bit of husk in the front and back, below the head, to create a torso,
make a pair of arms for your doll by folding a couple of husks in half, and then tying it at the ends to make hands. Slip the arms between the husks that form the torso, and tie off at the waist. If you like your dolls plump, slide an extra cotton ball or two in there to give your imbolic grain dolly a bit of shape
Arrange a few more husks, upside down, around the doll's waist. Overlap them slightly, and then tie them in place with yarn -- it should look like she has her skirt up over her face. After you've tied the waist, carefully fold the husks down, so now her skirt comes downwards, towards where her feet would be trim the hem of the skirt so it's even, and let your doll completely dry. Once your doll has dried, you can leave her plain or give her a face and some hair (use soft yarn). Some people go all out decorating their imbolic grain bride doll -- you can add clothing, an apron, beadwork, whatever your imagination can create.
Place your doll in a place of honor in your home for Imbolc, near your hearth or in the kitchen if possible
