~Skull and Moss vase~



You'll need :

One or more clear vases

(Dollar Tree) $1 each

Bag of moss (Dollar Tree)$1
Mini skulls (Walmart)$3.98

For this project you simply layer your moss and skulls in your clear vase till you reach the top of your vase. Then you just have to find its new home in your Halloween decor and you are done!

For this Project I spent $6.98 for two vases










~Upcycled glitter pumpkin arrangement~



You'll need:

Glitter pumpkin arrangement (Walmart) $5.84

1 glass pillar candle plate (Dollar Tree) $1 

1 4" glass taper candle holder (Dollar Tree) $1 

1 round tea light candle holder these come in packs of 2 (Dollar Tree) $1 
E6000 glue (Walmart) $2.97 
black gloss spray paint (Walmart) $1.66 
optional: Halloween floral

Without adding the optional floral for this project I spent $13.47

I got the Styrofoam pumpkin at Walmart and although it's cute the way it is, I wanted to bump it's wow factor up a notch. Also, it's top heavy and a little wobbly.


So for this project you're going to take your E6000 glue and glue your taper candle holder to the pillar plate. I chose to flip my pillar plate upside down for this project. Then you're going to glue your round tea light holder to the top of the taper candle holder and set aside to dry fully.

After your glued base is dry, it's time to paint it with your spray paint, I did two coats. While waiting for your painted base to dry if you have chosen to add some additional Halloween floral, now would be a good time to do this. After the painted base has fully dried it's time to grab your E6000 glue again and glue the glitter pumpkin to the top of its new base. Allow to fully dry before finding its new home in your Halloween decor. (You can also use some hot glue to secure in place till your E6000 glue dries fully, like I did in the video)




~Skull "urn" floral arrangement~

I also needed a Dremel-Not Pictured
You'll need:
Plastic skull (Walmart) $3.84
1 glass pillar candle plate (Dollar Tree) $1 
1 4in glass taper candle holder (Dollar Tree) $1 
1 round tea light candle holder these come in a pack of two (Dollar Tree) $1 
5 black and or purple rose bunches (Dollar Tree) $5
1 floral bunch to create height (Hobby Lobby) 40% off $4.19
1 floral foam (Dollar Tree) $1 
                                               E6000 glue (Walmart) $2.97
1 can black spray paint flat (Walmart) $3.96
Optional: 1 cascading floral bunch (I got mine a year ago and I cannot remember where...) 
Without adding the optional floral 
for this project I spent 
$23.96




So for this project you're going to take your E6000 glue and glue your taper candle holder to the pillar plate. I chose to flip my pillar plate upside down for this project. Then you're going to glue your round tea light holder to the top of the taper candle holder and set aside to dry fully.

Now you're going to need to cut the top portion of the skull off so you can insert the Floral foam. I used my floral foam as my measurement tool and traced around with a marker. Then I needed to decide how I was going to cut it...? The plastic on the skull I used was too thick to cut with an exacto knife or a box-cutter. So I asked my husband Craig what I should use and he suggested I use my Dremel. Because I had never use my Dremel as a cutting tool before he did this part for me while he was showing me how to do it. I then went in with my Dremel to clean up all the rough edges and smooth it out. Now we can insert the floral foam., 

After your glued base is dry, it's time to paint it with your spray paint. I did two coats. After the base has fully dried it's time to grab your E6000 glue and glue the skull to the base and set aside to fully dry. Once dry we can then start adding the Roses/flowers. I like to start with the Roses first, then the cascading pieces and finally add the height element. Now to find its new home among your Halloween decor and admire your new masterpiece!
