Ready to get your hands sticky? Its October and I’m ready to pull out my Halloween & Autumn décor along with some crafts.
I tend to like my Halloween and Autumn decor to blend in with my soundings. My living room colors are rust red and blues, I’ll simply use darker jewel tones of blue and orangie reds.
Recently I made these little guys!
These paper mache mummy heads are so simple and cheap to make, as long as you don’t mind getting your fingers a little sticky.
Start by making the paste.
Its only flour and water, mix the two until there's a consistency of pancake batter.
Cut cheese cloth into random strips and lay on the skull. I purchased these premade cardboard heads from the craft store for $2! Generously brush on paste to secure the cheese cloth.
Layer the cheese cloth over and over until the skull is completely covered.
Allow to dry for a few hours.
Remember those candle sticks? You probably can’t tell from the pictures but I painted them again. This time, a darker brownish red, the Tuscan red from the crackle paint was a little off.
These mummy heads are almost done, they just need a whimsical touch.
That’s where glitter comes in!
He’s much happier now!
How do you decorate for Halloween and Autumn?
