Do you need a way to showcase your fab crochet hats? Or Do you own those bland foam mannequin heads?
You LOL! Host has a solution! Decorate a few mannequin heads to make your designs shine. I am so excited
What sparked this excitement, well I made some Kufi Hats for men and was taking a photo of them, and I was not pleased. It looked very feminine, and boring
What’s a Creative to do? I went to my 3 favorite trusted sites.
Google for ideas about decorating my mannequins there were some creepy morbid looking foam heads and I really liked the gold and silver thumbtack designs!
Pinterest for ideas and inspiration here is my Board
Then I headed to YouTube for instructions (I hope to create a tutorial for you soon) and I loved it! There was loads of ideas and fun ways to make your mannequin heads look nice.
My favorites are the glitter mannequins and decoupage. Now they do have the beaded and mosaic tiles that are fabulous too. But I’ll see
I could not wait to start, here is what I grabbed my: mod podge, newspapers (I ♥ free) , foam brush., acrylic spray Here is what I created so far.
I can’t wait to design a few more of these . I need a set for a boy and a girl, a man and a woman, maybe 2 of each for a total of 8 mannequin heads This is a true “Mannequin Challenge”
Yes they do have them for sale, but; why not add your own style and pizzazz to show case your handmade pieces. Who is up for the challenge?
Pictures in the next post.
