Use hands to smooth the cloth into the facial features. Don't brush down the neck; stop at chin level so the fabric is loose below that. Repeat until you have 4 layers (each 7 feet long) of cheesecloth. Let dry thoroughly. (No need to dry between layers.) Tatter edges of cloth with scissors if desired. Attach a screw eye with a bit of glue to the top of the head; thread with monofilament to hang from hooks.
