Merry Christmas Eve Eve! Day 23 from the '25 Days of Harry Potter advent calendar' does not disappoint...
Look at this mandrake I made from scratch. Haha
I actually started out with paper wrapped in tin foil (a lot of tin foil). I added the fake leaves to the top.
I added the eyes (which are beads) and rope for hands and feet. Then, covered it with drywall plaster.
Then I covered the plants with a plastic bag while I spray painted the body.
After he dried, I stuck him in this pot and filled it with stone. I found the pot label on Pinterest as a free printable. Finally, I painted his eyes to give him a mad screaming look. Haha. It was a lot of work, but I love him.
