Find me on YouTube HERE!

100's of my Tutorials can be found HERE!

I decided to use some of the leftover pallet wood from the doghouse and create a Halloween decoration. It's a Sugar Skull Wall Hanging.

You will need:

- Scrap wood

- Glue

- Screws

- Stencils

- Acrylic paint

- Stencil brush

- Screws

Step 1: Cut Four Pieces of Wood Cut to Similar Lengths.

Step 2: Cut Two Pieces of Wood That Are Cut Slightly Shorter Than the Size of the Previous Four Put Together.

Step 3: Put Glue Onto the Two Back Pieces and Apply to the Back of the Four Pieces Put Together.

Step 4: Screw the Two Pieces to the Back of the Four Pieces - It Will Keep Them Together. I Used 8 Screws. Make Sure They Are Not Too Long. You Don't Want to Drill Through and Have Them Poking Out the Front.

Step 5: Using a Gray and White Acrylic Paint, Mix With Water and Give the Wood - Front and Back - a Wash. Allow to Dry.

Step 6: Stencil the Skull Onto the Wood. My Stencil and Crossbones. I Taped Them Off, So I Wouldn't Stencil Them Also.

Step 7: Once Dry, Use Other Stencils, or Parts of Other Stencil to Create Patterns and Designs on the Skull. Make It Colorful.

Step 8: I Used a Flat Brush to Paint Teeth.

Step 9: I Used a Golf Tee to Make Small Polka Dots.

Step 10: Stencil Roses Around the Skull.
