Honestly. Halloween is the best. I love this holiday far too much. It gives me a reason to wear blood on my clothes and people can’t judge. It’s great! ;) One of the best parts of this holiday is the selection of craft projects just waiting to be created. Like this skull! One minute, it’s just hanging out on the shelf being a regular glittered skull, and the next? BAM! DIY Skull Candle.

To make your own Skull Candle you’ll need:

  • glittered styrofoam skull (mine is from Cost Plus)
  • sharp knife
  • black taper candle

Carve out a hole the width of the base of the candle in the top of the skull. Hollow out the styrofoam in that hole, and stick the candle in. That’s it! Now you have a wicked awesome skull that looks beautifully creepy anywhere you place it.

Do you have a favorite halloween project? Fave costume? Do tell.

    This is super cute. And I wanted to mention – after reading your post on photography over at altsummit’s blog the other day – I think your pictures are lovely. I totally thought you were a professional photographer (says the girl trying desperately to push that little auto button on over to manual – gaining confidence thanks to people like you every day!).

      Wow! Thanks, Jessica! It’s been a total learning experience. You need to switch your camera to Manual! Those first few weeks, I filled my memory card with hundreds of bad photos. But that’s how you learn! :) Can’t wait to see how your photos transform!

      Richelle, now you know! Isn’t Cost Plus amazing? I go in the back just to admire and snack on all of the different candies. It’s sad, really.
