Lighted Skulls -- a Recycle Project!

I'm over at Dollar Store Crafts today with a quick, easy, CHEAP project for Halloween. This project only takes a couple minutes! Then, once you learn the basics of how to make these little guys, head back over here for a bonus project idea:

To make this version, all you need is a small string of twinkle lights (mine was a 20-light strand) and a utility knife. Simply cut a small X in the top of each skull and pop the lights in. I put my skulls on every other bulb, but every third would work well too. Easy!

Hey, while you're at it, remember this project from last year?

It continues to be one of my favorites! Check it out, and try it!

We don't have a dollar store craft. I just go to the dollar store & find things in it to make things with. That's why I like your blog so much! Thanks for sharing it with all of us.
