Halloween Craft – Glitter Skulls
This year Lily has shown an interest in halloween decorations. I am not much of a halloweener so you can imagine my lack of enthusiasm. Of course I wasn’t going to crush my kids dreams of a haunted house with “friendly ghosts” and “oooooooo” noises, so I came up with a plan. GLITTER! Let’s put some glitter on this whole Halloween thing and call it a holiday!
We have glittered all kinds of gorey things over here. Eyeballs, bones and skulls. In the words of the
musician pop spectacle Ke$ha – Go insane, Go insane, Throw some Glitter make it rain!
Coming up… Glitter skulls.
This is a totally easy craft to do with kids and truthfully I loved it as well. As you see in the above image, it’s my very sad attempt at giving the skull a gold tooth. You can see it if you tilt your head and blur your eyes!
Here is how you make one of these glitter skulled gems:
- Paper Mache Skull from Michaels Arts and Crafts – $1.50
- Glitter – Free thanks to my friend Sarah.
- Glue- Free thanks to my friend Sarah. ( both glue and glitter can be found at craft stores and Target and pretty much anywhere)
