I went to the craft store and found a paper mache skull for 99 cents and set out to make my own. With a little black paint, Mod Podge, foam paint brush and black glitter- all of which I already had- it was a success! I saved about $6.00 on this project and about an hour of my time! I had glittered quite a few pumpkins last year, so I decided a glittered skull would be neat.
To glitter the skull, I just added a coat of Mod Podge and sprinkled the black glitter; continuing to move around the entire skull until it was coated. (You can paint it black, first. I just decided to glitter it as is and paint the inside black so you couldn't see the newspaper.
