And unfortunately, this project did not turn out the way I hoped it would. Let me explain…
Did you ever watch True Blood? Part of this display was inspired by that show.
If you do not watch the show, all you need to know is that according to HBO, vampires turn into a pile of blood and goop after they are destroyed. (Not piles of stone and rubble like Stephenie Meyer would lead you to believe.)
In this past season, Russell (one of the ‘bad’ vampires) mourned the loss of Talbot (his vampire ‘son’) after he was killed. For several episodes, Russell carried around the bloody leftovers of Talbot in this cut crystal vase. He carried it everywhere. And talked to it. Clearly, he had a hard time letting go.
And I a spray painted a big skull from a craft store. I used black spray paint then a layer of spray glitter.
(Did you ever use spray glitter? It is a little pricier than a jar of glitter and glue. But the price was worth it. I did not have a huge mess and glitter shedding everywhere.)
Hopefully, I will have better ideas for the jars next year.
