Glamour Skulls DIY

Unless you live completely off the grid, there's a good chance you've been on Facebook and Pinterest and Instagram, and aren't we all so glamorous in that world?! Our children are beautiful and brilliant, we are all crafty and hip and spend our free time apple picking and playing guitar, sometimes simultaneously.

But here's my reality folks... I am sitting at the computer in my stinky workout clothes trying to figure out how not to bore you to death - in need of a shower, a haircut, groceries and a clean house and only an hour in which to do all this before my (beautiful and brilliant) son gets home. 

And what do I realize!?  My "before" pic of all the supplies that I actually remembered to take I, of course, deleted and it is nowhere to be found.

So I hope you'll forgive me, and I'm sure that you will, if this post is incomplete and you have to use your imagination a bit.  Because no matter how hard we try, most of our lives are not glamorous - at least not most of the time.  

So cheers to those instances of glamour, those vignettes of time that we post on social media, because nobody's perfect...but we all have our moments....



Paper Mache skulls from Michaels (Look like bottom skull before decoupage)
Glamorous/fall tissue paper (open for interpretation)
Modge Podge (I used gloss)
Foam brushes


Tear tissue paper into palm size or smaller pieces and decoupage the heck out of them! I chose to leave some without tissue paper, but did gloss them up with the Modge Podge.

Now go check out my FB page and Pinterest and Instagram  and look at how captivating I am- thanks to my skulls of course!  At least something around here is eternally glamorous....
