DIY Shrunken Heads

After including these awesome Shrunken Heads in a recent roundup I decided they were too good not to try out for myself... and I'm glad I did. The final look of the heads, which are simply made from apples, is striking and would be great for any Halloween party, plus they were a lot of fun to make!

To make your own simply peel an apple, cut it in half and remove the core. Use a knife to carve facial features into the surface of the apple, coat with lemon juice, place on a lined tray and bake at a very low temperature for a couple of hours. To find out more about how they're made in more detail watch Martha Stewarts original video!
