Twist the eye screw into the top of the head. Position the loop on the screw to the front or side depending on how you want it to hang.

Leave the skull charm to dry.

Paint the head white.

Decorate with permanent markers and seal with clear gloss spray.

Hang on a chain alone or with other bits and baubles.
