Continuing with my Gothic Halloween theme, I dressed up a gold leafed skull I made last year. I mean who doesn't make a top hat for a skull?
My camera battery was dead while I was making this hat but it's a pretty simple construction.
- Heavy scrapbook paper...cover weight or light chipboard weight. I used a chipboard weight glitter paper
- Strong adhesive or hot glue gun. I used Sookwang double sided tape or the "red liner" double sided tape works as well.
- Embellishments ( I really just raided my stash for this)
The fun part is in the embellishments. I used some leftover tulle, paper roses and rolled paper roses that I made from scraps in my stash, along with leftover bits of ribbon and trim and a couple of glittered leaves.
Mr. Skully needed a friend so I hooked him up with Mrs. Pumpkin, a glittery ceramic pumpkin I picked up for 60% off at Michaels. I decided rather than alter her permanently, I'd just give her a costume to wear that can be removed and she can stay on my mantel through Thanksgiving.
For this, I just used a black masquerade mask (Creatology, Michaels) and added a nose made from glitter and metallic scrapbook paper, more rolled paper roses, and glitter leaves. Her "eyelashes" are black adhesive rhinestones!
BOO! Don't they look ready to go to a Halloween Ball ?
