It’s Halloween week! Time to get spooky! I wanted to create some Halloween decorations that were a little less tacky and a whole lot of creepy chic. Obviously they had to contain glitter! I settled on creating this simple skull garland, with alternating white and black glittery skulls its perfect for adding a little bit of sophisticated Halloween to your home. Perfect too for Halloween parties or to hang above your front door to welcome trick or treaters!
DIY Glitter Skull Garland.
You will Need:
- Black card (£1.50 per pack at Hobbycraft)
- Black and white glitter paper (£2.50 at Hobbycraft)
- Black glitter (£1.50 at Hobbycraft)
- Black String or wool
- Glue gun (£5.00 At Hobbycraft)
- PVA glue (From Baker Ross)
- Template ONLY 50p GET YOURS HERE!!
Gather your glitter card and plain black card, then using the template cut out two skulls from each piece of card.
You should end up with 2x white glitter, 2x black glitter and 2x black card.
Admire your great cutting skills!
Take the two plain black skulls, add a thin line of PVA glue around the eyes and mouth using a very small paintbrush.
Sprinkle black glitter over the PVA glue and leave to dry. This will add a little bit of extra sparkle and definition to your spooky skulls!
You could always swap out black glitter for a different colour perhaps a purple or green!
Position your skulls alternating along your string/wool. I cut my string about 2 metres, I then positioned the skulls about 20cm apart. Be sure to leave a length of string at either end for hanging!
Get out your glue gun and add glue to the back of your skulls to attach them to your string.
Hang up your skull garland for all to see!
