Skull Halloween Decoration

Happy Sunday!! I hope you are having a great weekend!! It's a little chilly here but sunny...a nice Fall weekend :) I have a quick and spooky Halloween project to share with you today.


These are so fun and easy to make. The skull is a digital download from the Cricut Craft Room. I used heavy-weight white cardstock to cut it out and quick-drying white glue to hold it together. It was then brushed with Willow Adirondack Paint Dabber, followed by Espresso and then Snow Cap. Once it dried, I spritzed it with Tsukineko Walnut Ink Spray Antiquing Solution to give it an aged look. I added some spider webbing and a battery operated tea light and voilĂ , a eerie decoration sure to add a big dose of creepy to any Halloween display :)

I am entering this in the Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday Challenge - Halloween.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Oooooooooooh, this is just so much fun! What a great file. You always create such amazing projects adding your own unique touches. You are the Spellbinder queen, but I think you should add inking to the list as well. Fabulous, my dear friend.

Well Lisa, everyone has already said everything that can be said about your AMAZING skull AND your AWESOME talent, they didn't leave anything for me to say...I will just have to repeat what has been said.. Simply awesome, I am so impressed everytime I pop over, you are truly amzaing.. I always leave with a smile and feeling so inspired by your projects, I just need to find some time. Hope you are having a wonderful week end my friend. Hugs

Karen said...

Eeeeeeek! This is so crazy scary, my sweet friend! Only someone as talented as you, my dear Lisa, would make this look so scarily authentic. So spooky, so eerie, and every other freaky adjective out there. :o) All of the details you added pulled together to create something that truly does defy words. :o) Wonderful work as always, my friend. (My mind is currently super spacy, otherwise I'd throw another billion adjectives at you. Thankfully you already know how much I adore your work and YOU!) :o)

Hugs and blessings!
