Project Instructions

Paint the skull white or the color of your choice. Let dry completely.

Use a black Sharpie® paint pen to draw designs. Let dry. Fill areas in with acrylic paint. Let dry.

You can use glitter glue to create designs in the painted areas or glitter the whole skull.

To glitter the skull, brush on Mod Podge®. Hold skull over a glitter tray or shallow box and then sprinkle with fine glitter. Hold skull at an angle and tap the bottom to shake off the excess glitter.


If painting a design on the skull, draw on skull or paper before painting. Have a glitter tray or shallow box handy for the glitter. If using glitter glue, work in small areas and let glitter dry. Refer to photo to assist with project.
