I saw this project in Martha Stewart LIVING and had to give it a try!
Spooky Creepy Cheese Cloth and a Mannequin head make for a pretty fun decoration!
2. I had to cut my package of Cheese Cloth into 4 equal pieces. Open up each piece and lay it over your foam head. Add a second piece of cloth and now you are ready to coat in starch. Pour a small amount of starch into a small bowl and dip your paint brush into the bowl and apply to the head. Continue this process until you have added all 4 pieces of cloth and covered it with starch.
3. Pay close attention to the facial features. You will want to make sure the cloth is hugging the face as close as possible as to show off the features.
4. Take the head outside and spray the head down with the starch. I concentrated on the head and left the hanging cloth dry and flowing. Let dry for a few hours before moving it inside.
**** When it was done drying I was hoping for a stiffer finished product. I think if I did this again I would use a glue and water solution instead of the starch. Just my after thought!
I do love the way it turned out! So spooky!
