What You Will Need

  • Milk bottles I found mine at the thrift store for 50 cents each but you can get something similar at your local craft store.
  • White spray paint
  • Craft foam (color does not matter as we will be painting it)
  • Craft knife
  • Skull image
  • Hot glue and a glue gun


  • Paint the bottles white with the spray paint and set them aside to dry.  You will want to make sure to clean the glass well before painting. I like to use rubbing alcohol to get a clean surface then paint.
  • Now we need a skull.  Take craft foam and any skull image you wish.  The skull, eyes, and nose should be cut from the foam.  The teeth, however, should just be scored with your craft knife and not cut all the way through.  
  • Now glue those skulls on your bottles using a little hot glue or any other glue you have on hand.
  • Now spray paint them...many times!  The foam actually absorbs the paint so you will have to do multiple coats.
