Cheap and Easy DIY Halloween Decorations
Step 1: disassemble lamps
Step 2: Paint
Step 3: Drill Holes in the Skulls
Use a drill bit that matches the diameter of the threaded rod you removed from your lamp and drill a hole all the way through each skull. The skulls will be inserted onto the rods. You may want the skulls to sit straight or you may want them tilted. Decide how you want to arrange them before you drill the holes.
Step 4: Assemble your Skull Candlesticks
Mess around configuring all the parts until you find a design your happy with. Like I said in step 3, it’s preferable to do a dry run before you drill the holes in the skulls. Take into consideration that you’ll be sitting a candle on the top so have one of the wider diameter pieces on the top.
