Spooky Crystal Ball - Dollar Tree Halloween DIY

4 Materials
5 Hours

This spooky crystal ball was made using only items from Dollar Tree! Very easy to make and very inexpensive, too.

To make this you're going to need to head to Dollar Tree and grab a few Halloween decorations. To see the full list see my blog post.

The first thing you need to do to make the spooky crystal ball is to paint the glass pieces with black spray paint. It takes a little while for this to dry so while they are drying you can work on the other part.

Using the E6000 adhesive, glue the glass dish on the top of the 2 candle holders. Set aside and let dry completely.

To give the glass globe that spooky smoky look, carefully run the flame of a lit candle or lighter around the globe. It gets really hot so be very careful with this part!

For the creepy affect of this spooky crystal ball, I hot glued a piece of the creepy cloth to the top of the globe and added a creepy crawly creature. On the other side I glued a  plastic spider.

To get the skull inside, I tied a small piece of fishing line to the top and hot glued it to the inside of the globe. This way it looks like the skull is just floating around in there.

Put the glass globe on the top of your base part and add a little bit of the cloth to around the globe. On the side of this, I glued a plastic spider for more creepiness.
