One of my favorite things to do in planning for a party is to choose a theme. I would often have the theme for the next year’s Halloween party in mind before the current year’s party was finished.
A theme helps to keep me focused. I have what I refer to as “squirrel syndrome.” I can relate to the dog, Dug, in UP. I see a shiny pumpkin, a retro monster prop, and a gothic backdrop, and next thing you know, I have a whole lot of pieces that don’t go together.
With that in mind, I set out to create a party theme that you can easily craft cute or creepy, simple or elaborate, and one that will work in nearly every area of the party from invitation to decor to costume.
The Skull Trio Pattern features three skeleton faces, Norman (oval eyes), Luna (heart-shaped eyes), and Gus (one large and one small eye). They can be used together or focus on just one. The materials you select will set the tone. Will you go traditional with black and orange? How about something vibrant and retro? Gothic black, grey and red?
Over the next few days, I will have tutorials on some of the different party projects you can craft with this pattern. I will link all the projects below, so be sure to check back, so you don’t miss anything.
