Luminary Skull

Hello – yes it’s me again.

Gosh I love this time of year!!! I get to use my wicked twisted brain to come up with some diabolic, evil looking projects.

Yes, I believe that Halloween should be scary and not cutesy. Not that there is anything wrong in cutesy projects for the kiddos, but when they reach a certain age (like me…29 😉 ) cutesy just isn’t fun anymore.

I always look for ways to make projects look creepy – the creepier the better 😀

That’s what I did to this awesome Skull Head Candle Holder from Simply Crafty SVGs – just added a bit more scary than was already there to begin with.

For this I used AC Cardstock in Black, White, Rouge and Chocolate along with patterned paper from Tim Holtz and some Grey Bling Cardstock from Bazzill.

I embossed the Skull panels with an Embossing folder from Sizzix (also a Tim Holtz I think) and inked all the edges with Distress Ink. I also added some black gems onto the skull layer on the bottom.

I added vellum behind the openings in the Skull and made the blood dripping down or Stearin drips myself. All I did was enlarge the dripping portion of the candle, cut away the top and some of the tabs and cut the pieces out (using scissors) a the scor lines. Then I glued the pieces onto the top of the skull using the top tab and voila!

I made the Bloody Hatchet in 50% of the original size and cut a small slit in the vellum behind the cracked panel on the Skull, so it could fit in there. I haven’t glued it down.

I know the skull isn’t too scary in the daylight but at night…….

  1. Wow. That’s super cool. I haven’t really worked with paper because well, I have a truckload of vinyl but I think I may try one of these. I love it. Great job.
