Small glittered skull and bones

My glittered skull shape candle holder was the inspiration for my glitter skulls.

I bought two "Bag of Bones" from Pound Land. Each bag contained six plastic mini skulls and six bones, and cost £1 for the bag! I painted them in PVA glue and then covered them in silver glitter. I used a spoon to spoon up the excess glitter and re-cover the skulls and bones. A 50g glitter shaker covered all the 12 bones, 12 mini skulls and 2 larger skulls. On the smaller skull I put pink beads for the eyes to give them more definition. I love how they turned out!
