I found this Plain Jane styrofoam head at a garage sale for 50 cents, holes in her head and all. I thought she deserved a little makeover, so I got out my Mod Podge and vintage sewing patterns.
I used bits and pieces from both of these patterns to cover her face.
Right now she looks like she was just released from the emergency room.
I had to do a lot of cutting and folding in the neck area, but she still ended up with lots of wrinkles. I guess that's something we'll all have to face sooner or later.
Here's the quartet all ready to go. I think I'll use the new head for displaying
hats instead of jewelry. It's hard to see in the picture, but the front pattern piece says "front facing."
I used the thicker sewing pattern directions instead of the tissue for the larger plastic shell mannequin in back. The other two are paper mache. The one on the right was covered with an embossed linen table runner. I can display more ornate pieces of jewelry on her because of her neutral background.
