I made one myself because I couldn't find one anywhere.
I used a balloon for the head, measuring mine first, I blew it up till it measured actual size. I then took the pot and cut the bottom off and attached the balloon with masking tape to the pot. I Ripped old newspaper into 1inch wide strips, dipped the newspaper into paste and layed it all over the balloon and pot.

When it had dried I gave it 2 coats of spray paint.

What do you use the head for, I'm curious? Could you theoretically use it to create more paper mache heads? Would it work sealing it in mod podge? (I'm needing to make a head for my scarecrow this halloween, and for future halloween decorations, and I don't want to go out and buy a wig stand!) Thanks!

The balloon didn't pop, it only does once you pop it yourself using a needle and of course when it is finally dry... you could always just leave it in without having to stab the thing...haha no one would notice there's a balloon inside. ^_^
