- Time:2+ hours
1Paint the paper mache skull white using the acrylic paint and let dry.
2Cut a hole in the top of the skull about 3 x 3 inches wide.
3Using a pencil, lightly doodle on the skull with swirling lines and arches using the photo as a guideline. The sky is the limit here so get as fancy or keep it as simple as you like.
4Follow your doodles with the glitter glues, alternating colors as you go, but keep it symmetrical from one side of the skull to the other.
5Embellish your skull with the gems. You can place rows along brow or jaw lines, a single gem a t the end of a glitter line, or anywhere else you can imagine.
6Cut your floral foam into a block that will fit snugly into the hole you cut in step 2 leaving about an inch sticking out of the top. Glue in place with the hot glue.
7Cover your foam with some of the Spanish moss.
