Want to add a spooky touch to your Halloween decor? Here’s how to make DIY Faux Succulent Skulls for Halloween!
Love decorating for Halloween? Me too!
I am having so much fun making spooky plant themed decor for our Halloween mantel this year.
When I was shopping for Halloween craft supplies at Michaels, I found these large styrofoam skulls.
I don’t think I had ever seen a foam skull before!
Immediately, I thought of floral foam and went looking for short picked flowers that I could stick into the top.

Here’s how to make a spooky succulent skull for Halloween!
Steps to make a succulent skull:
- Start by planning the placements of your succulents. I follow the rule of threes and try to cluster 3 together with the tallest ones in the back.
- Gently stab your flower pick into the top of the skull, repeat until all are in place.
- Plug in your hot glue gun.
- Apply hot glue to the skull and gently press the moss into place.
Note that hot glue can melt foam. Be very careful and test in an inconspicuous place first!
