Medusa – she is beautiful, but don’t stare at her too long or she will turn you into stone. It’s hard not to stare at a spooky planter like this Medusa one on DIY Network. Want to make your own? Let’s give a foam a lobotomy shall we!
- Foam Head
- Craft Knife
- Green Paint
- Paint Brush
- Snake Like Plant
- Faux Eyelashes
- Plastic Snakes
Use the knife to hollow out the head. Take care not to cut all the way through the forehead.
Use craft paint to make Medusa green. A couple of coats may be necessary.
Once your paint is dry embellish your Medusa head as you would like. I opted for faux lashes, sequins and paint pens to make Medusa extra spooky.
The last thing is to add your plant. I added plastic snakes, wired yarn and floral picks to make things extra spooky. It’s hard not to stare at her beauty. Check out more Halloween Horticulture on DIY Network and if you love Medusa I’ve got a couple more to share.
Remember my Halloween gallery wall last year? Yup I gave a thrifted lady a snake-tastic Medusa makeover.
Which way will you get your snake on this Halloween?
