Over the past month, this photo “went viral” on Pinterest. So I figured, my darling skull door knocker craft should kick of my 31 days of Halloween and our month long love song to all things Halloween.

  1. Your door knocker is perfect and deserves to go viral on Pinterest 🙂 I tried to add the party button to my post but it just created a small (outline) box … no text or graphics, so I just added a link back to the party … I’ll try adding the button later, its so cute I hope I can get it to work! Thanks for a fun party.


  2. Hey! I also bought a door knocker at the dollar store and painted it silver.. But mine does not look like this one.. Did you wipe off the spray paint to show the black in places?
