Okay, let’s get to the tutorial!
Here’s what you need:
- 6 x 9 wood block
- Black paint
- Wire nails (18 gauge x 3/4 in.)
- Crochet thread (12-15 yards)
- Skull Template
How to make it:
Step 1- Paint:
Paint the entire block black. Let dry.
Step 2- Nails:
Download our skull template HERE. Place the template on the block. You will put a nail on all the dots, so easy! Very first, hammer a nail at the top and one at the bottom to hold the template in place.
Step 3- String:
Once the mouth area is filled in, move up to the nose. Outline the nose and begin filling in working your way to the right eye (or left…it doesn’t matter which direction you go, just remember to work upwards and around.)
Work your way over to the left eye and….you know what to do. 😉
String and fill, working around as you go.
