Halloween Skull Ornament Reviewed by Stephanie Ripley on 2011-11-09 ****
Very quick and easy. I used felt circles for eyes instead of the crocheted circles. We gave it to my son's teacher for Halloween. She loves the Spanish holiday "Dia de los Muertos" - "The Day of the Dead" and this fits the style perfectly. A great stash buster!
