On a whim, I decided to make the Shrunken Head Guy from Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice. I then made him a Shrunken Head Bride. I think they would make the perfect Halloween guests.

This crochet pattern is only for the head. The body is something you will have to put together using old clothes and pillows. The pattern requires you to crochet in a spiral and in rows. It is written using US terms. I would rate it a high difficulty - some of the joining is quite complicated. I’ve added lots of photos and I’m happy to answer any questions you might have.
