So I found this fabulous Skull Marquee at a local home store and I fell in love with it. I just wasn’t sure how I’d use him. And then I remembered I had bought these Giant Silk Flowers on clearance last spring for $1.60 each. And I knew it was a match made in Halloween Heaven! Skulls and black flowers just go together. Am I right or am I right? So this is my Halloween Skull Marquee wreath that is super easy to make!

The best part is, the skull marquee is battery powered, so I can turn the lights on on Halloween night to glow in the dark! How cool is that?!

The black and white stripe ribbon was the perfect addition to this wreath! Its both functional to hang the wreath and it adds a pattern to the wreath as well as a layering effect.

He’s a rather pleasant skull, isn’t he? I like that he’s not crazy scary. I’m not into gore and guts.
