My hubby is also a creative type. Unlike my projects, which are usually just to look pretty, his projects involve some type of working mechanism. This year he made a skull fountain to add to our Halloween decor.
He started with a plastic bird bath from the Dollar Store. He arranged and glued on small and medium plastic skulls for decoration and then one big one. He primed it with Krylon fusion for plastic river rock. (You could use any light color). The top coat is Rustoleum American Accents stone and it looks very much like concrete. The final touch is a fountain pump from Lowes that is hidden under the large skull and pumps "blood" through the eyes. (It's really just water and red food coloring.)
