Skulls with Lighted Eyes?
If you watched my “clown skull” video, you know I wasn’t excited about them.
OK, I really didn’t like them at all!
I want to thank everyone who told me the skulls would look better if they were painted as Day of the Dead sugar skulls. I really did intend to do that – but in the end I decided to be lazy.
These lighted skulls were really easy, and I didn’t have to do any fine detailed painting, which I really don’t enjoy doing. And I happened to have some of the LED lights left over from another project that I’ll tell you about next time.
Links to items mentioned in the video:
- You can find the skull form here.
- If you’d like to sculpt a more detailed skull, you can use the info in this video to make a paper mache mask over a clay model.
- You can find the cheap little LED lights here.
- And you can find patterns for the masks and sculptures behind me in the video here.

Yes, I agree that these are cool! Love the lights! Captivating and attention-getting.
Jonni- these skills are not too scary for little ones.. My grandkids are aged 3-7 and they would not be scared by these and they would think them very cool! I think kids these days have been conditioned so much by Halloween stuff all around that they don’t get frightened by decorations. They are more afraid of real life! My 5 year old one is currently obsessed with black bears being around. No sir, there are no black bears on the NJ beaches!
