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. This year I decided to do a Halloween printable for the blog. My first Halloween décor! So I did some research to list all the typical Halloween decor items like pumpkins, skulls, witches, bats, spiders, zombies and so on. As I was never into scary, bloody stuff, I didn’t feel very drawn to any of them.
I was thinking…maybe some bats…they are kind of cute…but somehow it seemed all so boring to me as you find hundreds of Halloween bat décor ideas on the internet. I didn’t want to add another one.
When I was looking up decor ideas with skulls, I saw that beautiful – as beautiful as a skull can get, in my opinion – skull with a flower crown, called a Mexican skull. There it was! That would be my Halloween printable: a flower crown skull. That you can very easily make into a garland with the technique I used also for my quick and easy paper bunting garland.
I love the flower crown skull idea so much, I also would totally dress up like that. There are some amazing skeleton make-up ideas and tutorials out there and combined with my DIY floral head piece you have the perfect Halloween make-up.

For your flower crown skull garland you need:
- printed template (download it from the links above)
- sewing needle
- sewing thread
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.
