Day 11 of 31 Day Spooktacular- Skull Basket

Beware: This project may take you all of 5 minutes.


To make this basket... place spanish moss in a hanging planter and set a skull on top (I used a styrofoam one from Wal-Mart).


Because I put mine outside and this little guy could never hold up in the North Dakota wind without securing it somehow, I looped a wire through the skull and wrapped it around the sides of the plant holder.  Depending on how heavy your skull is and where you will be hanging it, this step could be omitted.



Place on a sheppard's hook  and add sign on top (optional).


This little guy greets company before walking up the porch... the kid's especially find it "cool".  As it gets closer to Halloween, I'm going to place battery operated lights within the moss so it stands out at night. Sppooooooooookkkkkkyyyy.
