I know it is a little early for Halloween, but I am hosting a party this year so I have been working on a few projects to get ready. I don’t know if you saw the Mini Skull Vase Fillers in the PB catalog, but I quite liked them. So you can only imagine my excitement when I found these skulls at the dollar store!
I got a pack of like 8-10 for $1. They were a little smaller and brighter than the PB ones, but very similar. To tone down the whiteness I put the skulls, along with some brown acrylic paint and a little water in a Ziploc baggy. I mixed them around and moved them about so they were coated with the paint and then let them dry on a paper towel. So very easy.
I simply placed them in an apothecary jar with Spanish moss and finished it off with a rustic tag I stamped. Who’d ever guess it only set me back a couple bucks? And did you check out the price on PB’s? Mmm Hm.
Thank you Pottery Barn. Thank you dollar store. Happy Halloween. ;)
