Origami Skull Instructions – Easy DIY for Kids

Origami skulls are easy-to-make Halloween craft for children. With just a few basic folds and some cleverly placed cuts, kids can transform a single sheet of paper into a favorite symbol of Halloween.

The skull can be worn as a mask by punching holes in each side and stringing the thread through them to secure the mask on the child’s head. Alternatively, you could glue or tape a flat paint stirrer to the mask so your child could simply hold it in front of his or her face.

When Halloween is over, kids can make origami skulls to celebrate the Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos). This Spanish holiday is celebrated on November 1st and 2nd to honor the spirits of friends and family members who have passed away. The occasion is marked with parades, dances, special meals, and small trinkets left at the graves of loved ones. It is a national holiday in Mexico but frequently celebrated in the United States as well.

This project requires a square sheet of paper. To turn an 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheet of paper into a square, fold the upper right hand corner down so the edge touches the left hand side of the page. Fold this triangle over so it touches the right hand side of the page. Fold the bottom rectangle portion upward. Unfold this last fold and cut through the line with scissors to reveal your square 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch paper.

12 Unusual Owl Skull Tattoos

12 Unusual Owl Skull Tattoos

Creative and somewhat unusual these owl skull tattoos bring together two enduring tattoo subjects in one awesome design.

As hunters of the night, owls are an iconic nocturnal animal and have a vast array of symbolism associated with them. Many today see owls as a symbol of wisdom and intellect, and people often choose owl tattoos in light of this. Interestingly owls have another, darker, symbolism that dates back centuries to a number of different cultures. The Algonquin Indians of North America, Peruvian Chimu in South America  and ancient Egyptians saw the owl as a messenger of death and conductor of souls. Such symbolism is likely to be the inspiration for owl skull tattoos!

Owl skull tattoos bring together two classic tattoo images in a dramatic and striking design. More often than not the skull is tattooed as part of the owl, usually its stomach, although occasionally the owl is carrying a skull in its claws. A beautiful take on owl tattoos these owl skull designs have a deathly feel that creates some awesome body art.

Skulls on earrings? HELL YEAH! (DIY Awesomeness)

Wire Wrapped Skull Earrings

 These petite howlite skull beads are perfect for Halloween but can work any time of the year thanks to the sophesticated shoulder duster styling and crystal dangles. And the best part is that they only require basic wire wrap skills and tools.  Their casual style doesn’t require obsessive attention to detail so they are perfect for a less experienced wire wrapper.

These finished earrings are over 4 inches long, but yours don’t have to be that long. Wrap only three skulls for a shorter pair or one if you prefer a more dainty dangle.  For whatever reason, drop earrings tend to feel more balanced with an odd number of beads – but don’t take my word for it.  Try it out for yourself and see what feels right to you.
