Last week I shared a teaser for my Glow in the Dark Map using Puffy Paint Glow I mentioned then that colorful Day of the Dead skulls would be another fun project using this product. Contrary to what my meouffy Paint isn’t just for fabric crafts. These Dia de los Muertos skulls are a quick and easy craft and a must-have for any hallowed holiday mantel!
- Skulls: I nabbed a couple at the local resale show, but I’m quite certain you can also find them at the Dollar Store.
- Spray Paint: I went with a white base but you can chose any color.
- Puffy Paint Glow: I recommend the multi-pak so that you have lots of color options.
I always feel silly writing directions when I’m sure you can look at the skulls and figure out what I did. Oh, well, here goes.
Spray paint your skulls.
Get creative with the Puffy Paint, using dots, lines, swirls, etc.
Personally I like to keep the designs symmetrical.
Work a little bit at a time and don’t be surprised if you get to a point where you have to let it dry before you can finish. Once you’ve got all your design work done let them dry for up to 4-5 hours. I made mine in the evening so that they could dry overnight.
