Just For Fun: David Bowie Inspired Skull

David Bowie inspired skull for halloween decor!I’m a huge dork, but you already knew that. When I saw these awesome plaster skulls for sale at Michael’s the first idea that came to mind was, “OMG- David Bowie face paint.”

David Bowie inspired skull for halloween decor! This project is 100% just for fun. Those are sometimes the best kind, huh?

I don’t have a ton of Halloween decorations yet, so maybe this will be the start of a new collection? I want to become one of those old ladies with a bunch of Tupperware containers full of decor for every single holiday. Yes, that’s a good goal. 😀 Happy Saturday to you! xo. Elsie

P.S. Our friend Laura made some awesome bookends with this very same skull. They’re pretty much the coolest thing ever. Don’t you think?

  • As an avid David Bowie fan–this is one of my favorite DIY’s to date 🙂

  • This is AMAZING and I want one of mine!!!!

  • Ah! That’s funny, The AGO in Toronto just opened a David Bowie exhibit until the end of November. I have yet to go but apparently it’s amazing!

  • Where did Bowie suddenly pop into your head when you saw that skull?! That’s a pretty fantastic leap of creativity if I do say so myself!

    Helen mentioned the Bowie exhibit that just ended in London, but I think it’s touring because there’s a huge Bowie exhibit in Toronto now. Maybe it’ll head your way soon?

  • David Bowie – My first concert with a girlfriend. We were madly in love with him and his music. Still awesome 40 years later.

  • cute idea!thanks fpr sharing…have a nice sunday


  • ive been waiting to see these skulls pop up somewhere on the internet, because they are awesome! ive walked past them every trip to michaels, wishing I had something to do with it! xoxo sydney

  • Lol, that is a good goal! I have a friend who is obsessed with David Bowie…this may have to be her Halloween gift. She would just die!

  • Very surprised to see this. Bowie doesn’t exactly fit in with the whimsical,twee, magical world you inhabit!

    Jeremys musical influence, perhaps?

  • Such fun! Love also the book ends! Never have seen fake skulls on sale here tho. x) xx


  • Nice, this is a fun little project! You could do a whole line of these skulls with different Bowie face paint looks haha.

  • Love this idea, makes an intimidating skull looks a lot more jazzy xx Emmi


  • Ha that’s ace 🙂 It’s a shame you’re not in the UK. There was recently a huge David Bowie exhibition at the Victoria and Albert museum in London. I’m sure you would have been very inspired by it!

    Helen 🙂

  • That’s seriously the best thing I’ve ever seen! You should do a David Bowie/70’s inspired Halloween party.

  • Bowie is one of my all-time favorite singers. I love his “Diamond Dogs” and “Reality” albums. What’s your favorite album?

  • I have no idea who David Bowie is. Suddenly I feel as though I live under a rock…;)
