I saw this on Martha Stewart's website. Anything Martha does is super in my book. I went out and got a foam head (at Hobby Lobby with a 50% coupon!) and some gauze, which is really all you need for this project.
I didn't want the gauze to be bright white, I wanted my head waiter to have an aged look... this can be accomplished with some fabric dye, but I didn't have any so I watered down some acrylic paint. Worked like a charm.
I dipped my gauze into the paint...
Then I wrung it out gently and hung it to dry.
After they dried, I cut them in half lengthways... I didn't like how wide they were.
Aged. You've gotta love paint.
Then, I stuck my head onto a tiered stand, without the top tiers. That made absolutely no sense and I have to be OK with it.
I started wrapping the gauze. I didn't even need any glue or anything because gauze sticks to itself. Amazing.
I wrapped until I was happy with it. And man, was I happy with it.
It's a head on a serving tray. Creepy. And to add to the creepiness, I added large googly eyes.
Its eyes follow you, no matter where you are in the room. Awesome.
