Shriveled Apple Witch Head

Ever made a shriveled apple witch head?? Kinda spooky but very easy.

This picture above is of the first step, I'll be posting more pictures as it get's closer to being finished. If I had really thought this out, I would have done this project way in advance so you could see the step by step progression. But, did I really think this out?? Nooooo. For now, do the first step and you can wait with me as we watch our heads shrink. The apple heads that is. 
~Peel an apple. Eat the peel, discard the peel, feed it to the chicken overlords....point being, you don't need the peel. 
~Cut out a slice on either side of where you want the nose to be.
~Cut out a slice for each eye. 
~Cut out a slice for the mouth.
~(Optional) Add smaller, thin, vertical slices on the cheeks and forehead that will eventually be wrinkles. 
~Spray it with lemon juice to help it stay a little less brown, should you choose. I let mine go au natural. 
Set it on a window sill in the sun where it can dry over the next week or two. What should happen is that the apple will begin to dehydrate and the wrinkles and eyes, nose, mouth will begin to form. It's a very funky looking project!!
I joined up with these spooktacular parties:

  1. Great minds!! We made applehead dolls at school this week (actually over the last two weeks). :)

  2. I remember making these years ago - the look so realistic once they're dried.

    It's a great project!
