I had three dolls I bought at the dollar store for an art project I did in my college drawing class last semester.  After the class was over, I had no use for the dolls, but I didn't want to throw them away, so they sat around my room for a few months collecting dust.  I'm just now starting to redecorate my room in a black, white, and silver theme and I came up with the idea of using the dolls HEADS as wall art.  I started by spray painting the heads silver, and then I mounted the heads to a black shelf.  I really like how it turned out, but my nine-year-old sister refuses to look at them. She says they are "very creepy".   Cheesy   

Anyway, PICTURES!

all three doll heads:

The pictures were taken on my cell phone, so the coloration is a little bland.
I don't have any pictures of the shelf mounted, because my room isn't finished yet.

I like the idea, but I agree with your sister, they are totally creepy. If there was three of something else, say, plastic dinosaurs or something spray-painted silver that would be more up my alley. haha, nice work though

brilliant, i love this !
i have had dolls heads in my garden for years, in plant pots, also their legs and arms sticking out of other plant pots, and my friend who used to live in a tree house (as in was a total hippy tree dweller) used dolls heads as lights with tea light candles inside (unsafe maybe, but then again so is living in a tree!)

so your piccie made me grin, i thoroughly approve  Grin

Okay, I have to agree with your sister... creepy. However, also totally awesome. xD I can see myself using something similar, in all actuality, though prolly not doll heads. In the garden, though... I would do that. xD Just to confuse people.

Nice recon!
