Wonderfully fun and quirky! Who doesn’t love a skull? Well, me! – until my son took a liking to them a few years ago. Since then, I’ve embraced my macabre side and jumped in to his skull-collecting activities with complete enthusiasm. (Not sure he’d be loving the pink ones though.)
The skulls are created from resin and are very sturdy and smooth to the touch. The backs are completely flat, perfect for gluing onto any type of surface mount. You can also glue two heads together for a sort of Linda Blair spinning head kind of look. I did this in my beaded skeleton project – see picture below. Skulls measure about 1 1/8″ long and almost 3/4″ wide. Sizes vary somewhat between items.
HOW TO USE SKULLS IN YOUR ART
â€¢ Decorate your cell phone
â€¢ Add to a shadow box
â€¢ Make into a pendant necklace
â€¢ Glue to a hair barrette
â€¢ Embellish your backpack
â€¢ Top cupcakes for a birthday party
â€¢ Use in your scrapbooking project
â€¢ Create custom Day of the Dead art
These are great for any craft project! Use your imagination! And if you make something cool, please send me a pic – I’d love to see your work!
