Skull and Roses
This skull decor is the perfect combination of creepy elegance. To make this easy Halloween DIY simply:
- Spray the skull with Rustoleum Stone Spray Paint in Bleached Stone.
- Cut the bright fuchsia roses stem down so that you’re left with a couple of inches.
- Next, cut a wide hole in the top off of the skull.
- Stick some flower foam into the skull and then carefully arrange the flowers and a few springs of bright greenery. Hot glue into place.
For an added twist, use real flowers instead of the faux.
PRO TIP: Have the flower stems in the middle stand higher and then shorten as you work down. This will add height to the arrangement.
Stack of Stone Skulls
These stack of stone skulls are spectacular! Head to the dollar store, pick up 3 plastic skulls, and metal paper towel stand. Then head on over to the hardware store and pick up a bottle of faux stone spray paint.
- Cut a slit in the top and bottom in 2 of the 3 skulls.
- For the 3rd skull, cut a slit into the bottom but not the top
- Paint the 3 plastic skulls with the Rustoleum Stone Spray Paint in Bleached Stone. This will take a few coats. Let dry in between coats.
- Slide the first 2 skulls onto the paper towel stand
- Then slide the 3rd skull onto the top
- Cover the base with moss or fabric
And Voila! spooktacular stone skull decor.
This Halloween I’m all about the faux stone look but last year it was all about faux copper. I made a similar stack of of skulls but in black and copper. They came out way beyond cool!

Skull Porch Arrangement
Amp up a simple flower arrangement with this horrifyingly easy Halloween Dollar Tree skull DIY hack. You can paint the skull any colour you want. I decided to go with the original look.
Arrange real and/or faux flowers, pumpkins, and moss into a black urn flower pot. (I used faux hydrangeas, faux roses, and trailing flowers. The pumpkins used were from the dollar store and had been given a faux stone look.)
Insert the skull on a spike into the center of the arrangement.
That’s it! The final product is an elegant and unique skull flower arrangement that is sure to impress.

This wreath is awesome! It has just the right amount of terrifying and looks so high end. I can’t wait to hang this beauty on the front door!
- Using Rustoleum’s Spray Paint in Flat White, coat each of the skulls in a layer of paint. Let dry. You don’t need to be too picky with this step. Just get the paint on.
- Next, spray a couple coats of Rustoleum Spray Paint in Bleached Stone and let this dry.
- Grab a pool noodle and slice it in half length wise.
- Flip a wire wreath form around. You want to work with the concave part of the wreath form.
- Cut the pool noodle into smaller pieces and arrange them around the wreath form with hot glue. Gluing the noodle to the wire frame.
- Optional: cover the back of the frame with a black cloth. Attach it with hot glue.
- Starting in the middle of the wreath form start hot gluing the skulls, spacing them out evenly around the wreath. Attach these with hot glue.
- In the spaces between the skulls adhere moss with hot glue.
