Thought i'd put this up. i was wondering what i could do with my tiki torches that i use during my haunts to make them fit in more with the theme so i came up with this easy and fast project. hope someone finds it usefull. first start off with the four dollar skull from walmart.

second get a glass or something round close to the size of the top of the tiki torch. and mark the top of the skull.

this just a view of the pencil mark. sorry forgot i had a dentist appointment. anyway try to avoid making your mark to close to the front.or to the back.

next i got out my hacksaw blade and stuck it thru..try to keep blade angled toward the center so as to not cut where you don't want to.

next step is to get the tiki torch and place it in the hole and start to slowly twist back and forth to get the torch to start cutting the groove. go slowly so as to not break the skull.

as you can see from this pic the top of the tiki will start to make the opening the correct size , the top acts like a mini saw because of the teeth of the torch.

once you get all the way thru

then slowly take the skull out and place right side up in the hole and you got a skull tiki torch i think it adds a little more effect that way. but thats just me. hope you enjoy.


sorry about picture coming out sideways but couldn' figure out how to rotate it. but you can see the finished project.

You should mass market these things for Halloween next year - do a frankenstein a witch , mummy , etc... you can purchase the tiki torches off season , aswell as the halloween faces and make a bundle ! just an idea
