Get ready for the creepy holidays of fall with these cute Day of the Dead Skulls. Gather some smooth, oval rocks and some acrylic paint and get to work. The skulls you typically see in Day of the Dead crafts have a white background with an upside-down heart as the nose and lots of marigolds and spider webs in the design. You can learn how to paint rocks and make a bunch of these to decorate your house for Halloween. The best part is, you can use them year after year!

I love painting on rocks. There is a paint stick that makes it so easy.

#BestIdeaEver Nifty decorative project that will last! Love sugar skull ideas!

#BestIdeaEver I love this idea. My grandkids can do this with me. I already have the paints and paint brushes. I also have the Mod Podge that has the Gloss finish. That will really make those colors pop. I live in an apartment that has all of these great round and flat rocks just perfect for these sort of crafts. Imagination is all that is needed and you provided that as well. Thank you
