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

  • Faux Eyelashes
  • Sequins
  • Glue
  • Plastic Snakes
