We made the Skull out of reclaimed pallet wood.
This project seemed like a perfect way to actually use the wood and get it out of our side yard.
The cost of this project was a few hours of work and no cost for materials.
Materials you may need:
– Salvaged Pallet wood
– Tools needed are a nail gun, sander, 4 inch grinder with wire wheel and jigsaw, skill saw and what ever else comes to mind. We also used some old vanity lights to make it glow.
Sketch your Skull. I actually traced it onto poster paper first then we traced it onto the wood.
Find some victims to do all the work….. The older victim is a pretty good worker but the younger one he has UNION written all over him…
Using your saw, follow the traced lines around your pieces of wood.
Stop for countless Selfies!
smile at the camera a great deal…. and remember your protective gear.
We sanded the mouth area out and cut slots in the wood
giving the allusion of teeth.
This was our final step. My husband took some old vanity lights apart that were removed during a remodel and we reclaimed the wiring to illuminate the skull.
