Does anyone know to make concrete or like material head planter for outdoor plants? Answered

Hello Wonderful, and Creative people,
I need your help in achieving the same or similar look to these terracotta/concrete planter, with an aged moss green patina, $85-$125 at HGTV Marketplace Ouch!!! I would like to use these for small outdoor plants! and achieve the same awesome look for less? I would appreciate any suggestions before embarking in uncharted waters. I was thinking of using those Styrofoam heads and cutting a hold big enough to accommodate a flower pot. What should I use to prep for water/weather proofing...paper Mache, shellac, paint and glue moss???
Please advice this novice.
Thank -U-much! Lilmama

Lilmama, did you succeed in making your own heads? If so please share!
Did you know you could use something like a mask to make these head shapes?
Maybe you can buy them at a party store. Just fill them up and let it sit for a few days. There are some very inspiring posts and pictures on this website too if you want to learn more about it.

Hi Lilmama, did you ever end up making these cool heads for the garden?  If so, can you share what you ended up doing?  I love this idea!
