Shrunken Apple Heads
What you will need:
Large red or golden delicious apple
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp. salt
With a potato peeler, knife, or pumpkin carver carve out eye sockets, nose, mouth and ears. Stick whole cloves where eyes should be and rice where teeth should be. Sit apple on top of bottle cap. Place on a drying rack in a warm, dry place for about 2 weeks. Shape the face as it shrinks and hardens. Once dry, insert a strong wire to form body and add clothes if desired or other accessories.
