Maybe last week, when I showed you the easy chevron witch’s hat, you noticed that fabulous skull it was sitting atop.

That’s the skull.
After my Dollar Tree pumpkins upcycle, I was hooked on some fall / Halloween upcycling.
Enter this Dollar Tree skull upcycle.
If you run out to your local Dollar Tree, you may find these skulls in this state:
He’s definitely not bad as is.
He’s freaky looking.
And freaky looking for Halloween is good.
But, you guys know I love me some glitter and maybe even a little more freakishness than the average person.
As Carrie Bradshaw would say, “Let your freak flag fly.”
I’m beginning to think I should add “Sex and the City references” to my blog description. Hmmm…
But that wasn’t good enough.
I felt this skull needed to really be put on display. He wanted to be noticed.
He didn’t just want his freak flag to fly, he wanted it to soar.
I pulled out a couple of thrift store candlestick holders and spray painted them orange.
Just like with the chevron witch’s hat, I threw some glitter on them while the paint was still wet.
The candlestick holders took a full day to really dry. When they were dry, I added some hot glue around the top rims and stuck those skulls on there.
The disco ball skull, as I call him, is not a Dollar Tree upcycle. I bought him a few years back after Halloween when he was on clearance for a few bucks. I felt him and the other skulls could be great freakshows together.
When Grunt Labor saw it, he said, “Whoa, those are freaky.”
