Sorry Indigo, but I agree with your boys as well, but then again, all of the planter heads I've seen creep me out. I say, if you like, then you go for it!

I like the planted heads myself. I have a blue one on my porch as we speak. It has a large red spike and some sedum planted in it. They are a little creepy, but that just makes them interesting.

I found some doll "body parts" (head, arms and legs) and partially buried them in a pot, kinda like a shallow grave gone bad!
When I bought them myy hubby said "why?" My answer "You know. It's for the plants!" He just kind of shrugged and shook his head! LOL Nancy

Baby dolls seem to be a sort of a provocative icon, especially when they are missing parts or broken and used as 'art supplies.'. I think this comes from movies using dolls or clowns as scary elements.
Some artists use doll parts as sculpture to "highlight how much money is spent on plastic childrenâÂÂs toys every year which are then chucked away."
People who are thrilled by vampire and zombie culture are attracted to these dolls as art,.. and garden art. It's a real craze now and you'll see them on Pinterest and Etsy, but at the same time, you'll get a strong response one way or the other, if you use these dolls in your garden! ~~ Sue

I love it. I love anything that is not the norm. Interesting pots are a must for me.

I agree that it is a little creepy, but i like it. I laughed out loud when i scrolled down to the picture. I love the head planters but haven't figured out how to make one for myself. You may have solved my problem.
