Styrofoam mannequin heads are sold at wig shops. They can stand (on their necks), but suspending them lets the cloth flow freely.

How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Apply a layer of cheesecloth to head, then generously brush over head and face with glue. 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.

Step 2

Repeat until you have 4 layers (each 7 feet long) of cheesecloth. Let dry thoroughly. (No need to dry between layers.)

Step 3

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.
