Queen of Skulls Candy Dish

Isn't she a sight?  We've been calling her the Queen of Skulls around my house.  I wanted something shabby yet elegant, spooky but not to scary, and I think she delivers.

Make Your Own Medusa Costume

Looking for a costume that's a head turner, but don't have a lot of time or money to spend on it?  You'll love this idea!

This is one of my quick "go to" costumes.  I've worn it a few times and it always attracts a lot of attention.  It's kind of hard not to stare at the lady with snakes on her head!

To make the head piece, you'll need:
 a sturdy headband
several large rubber snakes
small rubber snakes
chenille sticks

(I found all the items at the Dollar Tree except for the large snakes, which I found in the toy section at Dollar General.)

Place one snake on the headband and bind it on using a chenille stick.  Repeat with the other snakes.

Use the chenille sticks to attach the smaller snakes directly to your hair.

To complete the costume, use a white sheet to make a toga.  Sometimes I paint my face and hands green for added dramatic effect.

Have fun turning heads!  Send me a picture if you decide to be Medusa this year.  I'd love to see it!
