I know it's a bit late, but I wanted to share anyways...
During the Halloween season, I decided I wanted to make a sugar skull.
Super cheap, and not too high on the difficulty scale.
The cool thing about it was that I got full creative control over the finished look.
I paper mached a skull "template", then used sandpaper to smooth out any bumps.
Next, I gave it a thick white coat of paint to start with a fresh canvas.
I decided to paint mine gold, use rhinestones, and ribbon as well - to spice it up a bit.
It was a fun little project for a seasonal decoration!
