If you’re in need of a festive Halloween door hanger, this kooky fellow is the perfect DIY project for you! Trick-or treaters are sure to love him. In addition to being stylish, he’s inexpensive and easy to make.
Plus, he looks great blowing in the wind!
I must admit, this project wasn’t initially on my Halloween to-do list, but when I saw this wooden skull plaque in the dollar spot at Target for $3, I knew I had to do something with him. Target had a few other shapes too. I saw a pumpkin and a cat as well. Luckily, I had a few of my favorite Plaid Crafts paints on hand from previous projects. So, this guy came together in no time!
First, I painted the sides, sockets and inside the vertical lines of the skull with FolkArt Brushed Metal Dark Gray acrylic paint. It’s not easy to stay in the small indented lines, but try your best. You’ll end up having to do less coats of the other colors that way.
