Styrofoam Heads Garden Pots-Cute and Unique


These are so fun to make and very cute in the garden. First you find yourself a styrofoam head that you use for wigs to sit on. I usually pick mine up at garage sales or 2nd hand stores. I don't pay mote than $3.00 for one.

Do a little surgery by cutting off the top of the head and then carve out a hole large enough to plant a groundcover in.

Next spray paint the face and hand paint the eyes and lips. Add your own personal touch with costume jewelry.

      Vicki it is that time of year again where I start making my people heads. I use regular spray paint on them. The trick is a many lite coats so it doesn't eat away the polystyrene. Have fun!

    Do you treat them with something so they stand up to the weather?

    I love these so much. Years ago, I tried to spray paint a styrofoam head and it caved in. I bet it has to be a different paint than the cheap kind from dollar tree.
