Awesome Crystal Ball Halloween Decor

Awesome Crystal Ball Halloween Decor.

Made with dollar store ingredients.

What Halloween setting would be complete without them?

I set out to find rounded bowls.

But, alas, it was not meant to be.

Instead, I bought fish bowls at the dollar store.

And candle sticks.

I’ve bought a dozen candlesticks the last couple of months, I think the clerk at the dollar store thinks I might have a problem.

And, more black paint.

I heartheartheart black paint.

I’ve bought more spray paint than I will admit to this year. The guy in the paint department at Walmart squints at me when I walk into that aisle.

Yes. Yes I do need another 6 cans of paint. :)

Back to these awesome crystal balls.

For the tall crystal ball, I used two candle sticks. I turned one upside down and used silicone glue to glue them together.

Then, I spray painted them both black.

I used our Halloween 2014 Skull Printable Download,

and cut out two skulls from the paper.

I used a wide popsicle stick and cut off just enough at the bottom to allow me to glue the skull in place.

I then used the silicone glue, and put it around the rim of the candlestick.  But I put the bowl on sideways.

Put both bowls on and allow them to dry. I tilted the glass up a bit to allow a better view.

Then I used my hot glue gun, and added a dollop of glue at the bottom of the bowl.

I stood the skull upright into the glue, and made sure I held it there until the glue cooled.

You can see the skulls through the bottom of the bowl.
