My boys think this just creepy and that I have gone over the edge with my garden junk!! I don't know.....I kinda like it!
Personally, I vote with your boys.
hahaha I would jump if I came around a courner and saw it, then I would laugh, say OMG; who would do that?!!!! hahaha
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 like creepy! I have a zombie garden gnome...he's in the house, not outside, cuz I'm afraid someone would steal him, but I put him out for a photo op...
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 childrenÃ¢ÂÂs 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

Personally, I LOVE it!
I love it. I love anything that is not the norm. Interesting pots are a must for me.
It's horrible. I love it!!! :) (I just scooted over here from the hypertufa forum. You people are so much fun.)
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.
