This is a fun and easy project. It can be used for halloween or year round.
Step 1: Materials
Skull shaped candy bowls - Target dollar section and also at Dollar tree
String Lights - Ball shape preferred, but can be done with regular string lights.
Permanent markers in as many colors as you have!
Step 2: Drawing on the Skulls.
Start by Googleing sugar skulls. This will give you many designs to use as inspiration. Above there is a screen capture of some of the results.
Using a dark color marker to fill the eyes, nose and mouth of the skull. Then start your designs on the skull going from lighter to darker colors. Use a black marker to outline your designs. You can make all the skulls in the design and do variations on the colors. I chose to do six different styles.
Step 3: Stringing the Skulls.
Place bulb into top of skull and secure the band over the wire. If you are using traditional string lights, use tape to secure the bulb in the skull.and taple to the band. Then hang and enjoy!
