These DIY Sunflower Skulls Are Perfect For A Freaky Fall And Haunting Halloween

It may seem a little early to some people but for those of us who love spooky season, it's never too early to start thinking about Halloween decor ideas. In just over two months, people will be gearing up to make their homes a little more creepy than usual. Sometimes, this means simply adding a few jack o'lanterns or skull decor pieces, or even some bats and witchy items.

This DIY sunflower skull display, however, is unique and it is perfect to mesh Halloween spook with the beauty of fall florals.

Beejay Olson is a father, business owner, and artist who completely DIYs his Halloween decor.

His intention was to make these part of a larger Halloween prop display, which he was able to hammer out in less than two weeks!

While he didn't reveal how he created these, it looks like he must have glued each sunflower petal to the skull, and it looks like he also hand-painted the skulls.

The display was even more amazing at night.

Some other people had their own skullflowers going on, too!

I love the pink and burgundy flowers here. It tames the creepy vibes of the skulls a bit.

My guess about how to make them seems to be on the right path.
