I decided I needed be looking for just such a head as I shopped garage and estates sales. And then today, at the first estate sale of 2014, in a room filled with boxes of junk, bags of plastic bags, a broken barbie and lots of pancake syrup, I spied it. The head was beat up, it was knocked down, it was not so pretty.
I picked it up. I put it back. I picked it up and I shook it all about. Kidding. I put it back, left the room, and treasure hunted the rest of the house. At the end, with my husband more than ready to go, I walked back into the room, picked up the seen-better-days stryofoam head, and added it to my pile. If the price was right, I could maybe paint it or something.
The price was right, so I brought home a head, with pins stuck in it like a voodoo doll, and set on the table and put some vintage hats on it and squealed with delight. Then I started researching how to beatify my find.
Discovering that modge-podge works great on styrofoam, and that I had both modge-podge and a clean brush, there wasn't any question as to what I would!
So the question really changes from who doesn't need a styrofoam head to:
Does the hat go like this?
Turns out I'm hat illiterate. Without a tag clearing defining the back, I'm lost!
