I spotted the cutest sparkly skull Halloween decoration at Pier One and decided to make my own version. I already had a black skull on hand that I picked up from Target’s Dollar Spot for $3 and of course, I had plenty of glitter, rhinestones, and sequins on hand to complete this Bejeweled Skull Halloween Decor without leaving my craft room.

Bejeweled Skull Halloween Decor Steps
1: If you don’t have a black ceramic skull, spray paint a white one with glossy black spray paint. Let it dry completely before gluing anything on it, preferably overnight.
2: Apply Clear Tacky Glue to the eye sockets and stick a Large Pearl Gem in one eye and one Silver Gem in the other eye.
3: Apply Clear Tacky Glue to each eyebrow and stick Silver and Star Sequins to the eyebrow, then sprinkle silver tinsel glitter over them to fill in the small gaps and spaces.
4: Apply glue to the area under the right eye so it seems to drip down. Follow the same sequin/ glitter process. Repeat under the left eye but without the drip.
5: Repeat the process for the left side of the chin area.
6: Apply glue to the center front area of the top of the skull as shown. Stick various medium rhinestones to the center and then stick on sequins and sprinkle glitter. Let the whole thing dry completely before moving it.
That’s it! This Bejeweled Skull Halloween Decor craft is so much fun to make and despite the embellished appearance, it’s actually quite simple and quick to make. You get a big bang for your buck considering you likely have a lot of these supplies already on hand like me. I’m very tempted to use the same process for her sister skull that’s white ceramic and maybe use some black gems and glitter. What do you think?
