This project really cracks me up...I laughed the whole time I was putting it together. 

I had this ugly green styrofoam head in my possession that needed a refashion and this is what I came up with.  Cauliflower Head was the star attraction in my veggie platter for last year's Halloween party.  :)

Here's what you need to get started:

*styrofoam head

*spray paint



Step 1: Paint the Head

If your paint is not food-safe, let the head sit and off-gas for a while before using it to get rid of any fumes or paint smell.
That is really creative! How fun :)
Thank you, my dear! Are you going to make one this year?
I think any dismembered head around halloween is a great spooky decoration. The col-y-flower is great imagination haha!
I agree...how can you go wrong with a dismembered head? You made me laugh! Glad you liked... :)
This gives me a great idea!!! Make the head into a bowl and arrange the cauliflower to look like a brain!!!!....Thanks for sharing
I like the bowl idea! You just gave me another idea....cut the head off flat and use a pate or cheese-ball-type food to create a rounded brain on top. We did a smoked salmon pate brain once and it was funny...would look awesome perched on a head. Yum! :)
i could use a styrofoam skull too
That would definitely put a fun twist on the project...post pics if you do!! :)
Hmmm, I wonder if the cauliflower would wick up food coloring, like white carnations? Anybody try that?
carnations are edible too
I did not realize carnations were edible...have lots of other edible flowers in my garden though...might be a fun centerpiece with flowers...like a flowery chia pet!
Oooh...that's a fun idea to try. I have never seen that done, but you know now I have to try it. I can tell you that if you squeeze lemon on purple cauliflower, it turns hot pink. ;)
