Year after year, October marks the beginning of pumpkin season. It’s that time of year when you’re sure to find Jack-o’-Lanterns chilling out on porches and pumpkin spice lattes warming hearts and hands everywhere. But around here, we’re a little partial to skulls. It’s one of the hottest trends of the season, but just remember that your standard old bag of bones just won’t do. No, we like ’em stylized, colorful and oh so cool.
This chic Stenciled Canvas project shows you how to whip up a great décor piece in about half an hour. Super easy to create, the simple black and white design will look great on a wall or tabletop, or you can even use it as a backdrop for your candy station. Pro tip: the Stencil1® Set has four different stencils courtesy of designer Ed Roth, so if sugar skulls aren’t your thing, you can rock a look with skulls and crossbones or classic craniums, or use all four in a creative montage.
Glam up your décor with this fabulous Glitter Skull Cloche. Bright and bold, the fun color mix gives this simple piece a modern look that will add spooky sparkle to entryways, breakfast bars and party tablescapes.
Show your bones with this beautiful Turquoise Skull Bracelet. Made with faux turquoise skulls and classic spacer beads, this trendy bracelet is sure to become a favorite jewelry piece that you’ll wear year-round! For some added pop, you can mix and match the turquoise beads with these colorful skull beads that feature shimmering rhinestone eyes.
Halloween isn’t Halloween without that perfect eerie glow, and now you can get it with these Skull Topped Mason Jars. As one of our favorite Mason jar projects of the season, they’re perfect for party table toppers and centerpieces, and you can even use them to light your pathway for all of the neighborhood trick or treaters.
