How To Make Halloween Skull Decorations


Halloween is coming and if you like your spookiness to have a vague Freda Kahlo flavour this is the craft project for you.This is a great project to do with the kids as it doesn't require a huge amount of skill and the end results are very satisfying.
Happy Halloween

You will need:
  • Plastic skulls (I got mine from a poundshop)
  • Plasticoat spraypaint
  • Enamel paint
  • Small paint brushes
  • Metallic fibre pens

Step One
Spray your skulls with the plasticoat. Do this outside or in a well ventilated room. Wear a dust mask. Leave to dry for a few hours.

Step Two
Use white enamel paint to paint in the teeth


Oh Grandma what big teeth you have



Step Three
Paint in the nasal aperture and eye sockets with black paint.

Step Five
use paint or another colour pen to decorate the skull with designs on the brow bone and chin.Also add a circle at the top of the skull.

Step Six
Add a flower on the top of the skull using different shades of enamel paint


Step Seven
Display your Halloween Sugar skulls and enjoy your spooky handiwork.
