sneak peak skulls

It's funny how this summer has flown by.  It feels like yesterday I was super inspired by the Day of the Dead exhibition at our local art guild.  And then the art shows started and things got a little hectic.  I'm officially recovered from shows and have chosen a what's next path...
It's a mad dash to attempt to finish this fun project for the exhibition.  The deadline for entries is MONDAY!  The pictures so my progress so far as of Saturday afternoon.  I worked on it Saturday evening and Sunday too so I have a lot more done.  And I'm not even going to try and be modest about this project.  I LOVE IT.  It's creepy and fun, bright and dark, sparkly and dull. 
I will have teal and blue flowers trailing up the arms of the handmade from found grape vine cross.  Teal flowers are made, blue ones are still in the works.  I also need to make leaves.  Lace everything.  Complete centers.  Assemble everything and photography it by Monday.  It's my challenge and I'm going to try my hardest to get it in.

What do you think?  Would you hang this on your door around Halloween?  Or only after Halloween for the official Day of the Dead?  I kinda even love the skull flowers at the top individually.  I'm contacting the seller of the skulls to see if they have more in stock for some potential Halloween themed flowers.

Skulls are very trendy. I do not celebrate Halloween but I find those skull flowers quite unique and modern. Rock and Metal fans might like those flowers, too!

I'm really loving your skull flowers! Definitely not my usual fair, but I think it's going to be way cool now that you've let me have a peak!
