How to Make a Skull Flashlight Cover



 

Materials Needed:

Flashlight

New Lunch Bag

White & Black Paint

Masking Tape

Construction Paper (optional)

Glue (optional)

 

Step 1



Paint the bag white



Obtain a new brown lunch bag (a used lunch bag would probably be too wrinkled and too hard to use).  Paint the bag white.  Let dry.

 


Step 2



Wrap bag with tape like a belt



Bulb end of flashlight is inserted 2 inches in open end of the bag…leaving space between the bag and the light. Draw open end of bag together around flashlight and tape with masking tape or tie with string.  Tape bag with tape like a belt.

***Leave space between the flashlight and the end of the bag so that the paper bag doesn’t sit directly on the light. NEVER LEAVE THE FLASHLIGHT COVERED WHILE UNATTENDED AND TURN OFF WHEN NOT IN USE!!!***

 

Step 3



Now let's start with painting the face



Now let’s start with painting the face.  Bag may be decorated by using tempera or acrylic paints and/or construction paper.  If construction paper is used, the desired portions of the designs are cut out of the paper and glued to one or more faces of the bag.

 

Step 4



Paint an oval for each eye and draw three thick lines for teeth



Paint an oval for each eye and draw three thick lines for teeth.  While the picture on the paper bag is being designed the flashlight can be lit in a darkened area to obtain the desired effect.

 

Step 5



Draw a heart shaped nose... or a triangle shaped nose



Draw a heart shaped nose… or a triangle shaped nose.

 

Step 6



Draw a circle around the eyes and nose... Draw a line around both sides of teeth



Draw a circle around the eyes and nose… Draw a line around both sides of teeth.  Fill in both those areas with black paint.
