How to Make a Shrunken Head
No home is complete without a shrunken head or two. They're great conversation starters when you have people over for dinner--and when you're not entertaining guests they make excellent paperweights.
Unfortunately, it's not always easy to get your hands on the real deal. So why not make your own shrunken head? All it takes is a strong stomach, a few basic ingredients, and a friend.
All joking aside, when I found some instructions for preparing shrunken heads, I was surprised by how easy it seemed. However, the process IS a bit gorey (to say the least), and I don't recommend reading about it unless you're planning to pursue a career as a coroner (or a member of a crime scene clean up crew).
You DID want gross, didn't you?
