This idea comes from Crafty Chica-Kathy Murillo.She has wonderful Day of the Dead ideas. I got the rubber skull lamp on sale for $3.00 at Target last year, but it just looked too plain. So I added some paint, sequins and a little hat that I got in a grab bag of craft items on half price day at the thrift store.


With the light on

Crafty Chica uses puffy paint and lots more glitter-I just used what I had on hand, but I'll probably add more-DOD skulls can never be too glitzy Grin

It's as much fun to scare as to be scared.

Thanks! Everyone should make them-then we'd see shining glittering happy light skulls everywhere on Day of the Dead!
