Goth and glamorous! Make these sparkly stands to display your wigs and hats.
I love to dress up, and over the years my costume collection has grown to include quite a few fun wigs and hats. In search of an interesting way to display my headwear that suited my personal style, I gathered a few decorative items I had lying around, plus a few craft supply staples to create these wig stands. They’re certainly more interesting than the standard styrofoam heads you’ll find at the beauty supply shop, and they’re super easy to make!

A note on the materials: Large glitter skulls can be found in many craft, seasonal, and big box stores around Halloween time. I found mine at Five Below, but I’ve also seen them at Target and JoAnn Fabrics. You may also be able to find them online year round. The glass votives I used were empty Catholic prayer candles. These can be found in the Latin foods section in most grocery stores.

    Using the foam brush and decoupage glue, cover your votive with the decorative paper any way you like. I used randomly torn black paper on one, and black and white stripes on the other.

    Brush white glue onto the base and cover with glitter. I have a designated plastic tub for glitter to prevent messes. Allow to dry. At this point you may want to seal the glitter with a clear coat spray. A thick coating of hairspray will also do the trick.

    Run a thick bead of hot glue around the rim of the votive. Working quickly, place the skull on top. Make sure it is pressed firmly into the glue.
