My clever husband made this "beet doll" to send me off on a shopping spree for my birthday. His grandmother used to make "potato dolls" decorated with felt and pipe cleaners when she gave him and his siblings money for Christmas. He's adding his own twist to the tradition. They're great fun to receive and it makes for a more substantial package to open, rather than just an envelope. Just don't make them too far ahead of time; the potatoes might sprout!
