Materials

  • Cheesecloth
  • Styrofoam mannequin heads
  • Sponge brush
  • Watered-down glue or fabric stiffener (such as Stiffy)
  • Screw eyes
  • Monofilament
  • Removable adhesive hooks (such as Command brand) or painters’ tape, to hang

Steps:

STEP 1:

Apply a layer of cheesecloth to head, then generously brush over head and face with glue. Use hands to smooth the cloth into the facial features. Don’t brush down the neck; stop at chin level so the fabric is loose below that.

STEP 2:

Repeat until you have 4 layers (each 7 feet long) of cheesecloth. Let dry thoroughly. (No need to dry between layers.)

STEP 3:

Tatter edges of cloth with scissors if desired. Attach a screw eye with a bit of glue to the top of the head; thread with monofilament to hang from hooks.
