- Large FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Disc
- FloraCraft® Smooth Finish®
- Paper mache skull
- Mod Podge
- Black glitter
- Paint brush
- Foam brush
- Plastic knife
- Acrylic Paints (light gray, dark gray, black)
- Letters (chipboard, stickers or whatever you can find)
- Ribbon (optional)
- Hot Glue
Step 1: Use a plastic knife to spread FloraCraft Smooth Finish around on the foam disc. Don’t worry about it being perfectly smooth because you want it to have texture. Set aside to dry.
Step 2: While the smooth finish is drying give the skull a coat of black paint (or a paint that matches the glitter color you are using). The paint will dry very quickly. Once the paint is dry work in small areas applying Mod Podge and glitter to the skull.
Step 3: Once the smooth finish is completely dry use a foam brush to apply the light and dark gray paints. You want to dab paint rather than brush it on to get into all the cracks and crevices created with the smooth finish.
Step 4: Use a hot glue gun to glue the skull onto the ‘headstone’ and apply the letters. I also hot glued a piece of ribbon to the back so I could hang my headstone but you could prop it up against something too.
This was an easy, fun and quick decoration that makes a big impact! I have quite a few different sized foam discs that I can’t wait to use for more Halloween decorations. I might add that the foam discs are extremely light making it easy to hang them.
Happy Hauntings my friends!
