Dolls creep me out.
Well, they did until a funny thing happened…I found a few photos online that got my attention. The first was a doll head that had been make into a pencil sharpener. I just HAD to have this, but after a little research I found that it was not to be. I set upon finding a doll head, so that I could make my own. What I found instead was a wonderful head to hold my pens.
You heard that correctly and here’s the photo to prove it!
I used the rollers as pen holders in the dolls hair. I completely creeped my kids out, but I had a new collection…or at least the beginning of one. Then, a friend’s son called to let me know there were two hairdressing practice heads for sale at a neighbor’s yearsale. For $12 I got myself a pair, and they were perfectly creepy.
THIS is why you may see some of my fellow Midnight Society bloggers posting about doll heads. For those of you who are interested in taking an ordinary doll head and making it into something whimsical or utilitarial, here’s the beginning of a fantastic Pinterest Board. BTW–it’s here you can see the doll pencil sharpener! Enjoy!
