This is one of those projects which I’ve had in my head for a couple of years, ever since I stumbled across this on the internet. It was one of those times where your finger goes straight to the buy button and then you realise it’s just a concept and therefore not available and you utter an internal scream to the God of retail. You know, those times? Anyway, last week I decided to finally have a go at it and plucked up the courage to order a mannequin. Here is my warning. Having a mannequin in the house, cutting it up and drilling into its head is maybe on of the creepiest things a crafter can do. I hid this down stairs at night before it was painted so I didn’t have to see its scary eyes! You have been warned!
You will need:
A head mannequin. I bought this one.
A heavy duty craft knife
An elastic band
White gloss spray paint
A glue gun
A long thin vase which fits inside the mannequin
