With the arrival of October closing in on me, I figured I may as well get a head start on Halloween decorations. After all, procrastination has no place in my home (says the girl who hasn’t really been blogging since July).
Since I’ve been so busy doing just about anything other than blogging, I haven’t really been in the crafting mode either. Now that our travel plans are pretty limited until after Christmas, I figured I should get started on some crafting ideas.
So as usual, I took a quick trip to The Dollar Tree, picked up a few “ingredients” and went to work. I originally bought three plastic skulls, a pack of coasters, and a little skull bobble-head. I used my glue gun to glue each head to the top of the other, making somewhat of a totem-pole. Then I glued a coaster to the top head, and spray painted the entire stick matte black. The skull bobble-head had no major makeover, with the exception of the same black paint.
When I saw how cute the initial project turned out, I went right back and bought more skulls to make another matching candlestick.
I’m absolutely in love with my skull candlesticks. So much so that I started wondering what else I could do with a bunch of black spray painted skulls. Any ideas?
