Halloween is coming up and I have a confession to make: I’ve never done Halloween before. Depending where you are from, you probably staring at your screen in disbelief right now.

For your flower crown skull garland you need:

1 – Cut out as many flower crown skulls as you like, just cut roughly around them.
2 – Thread the needle and string the skulls by stitching the needle through the paper – right and left of the flower crown. First from the front to the back, then from the back to the front again – the dotted line in the image below shows where the thread goes along the back. String as many flower crown skulls as you like.
3 – Hang your Halloween flower crown skull garland. Done.
I am quite curios, so please leave a comment: Are you a fan of Halloween? What is your favourite Halloween décor?
