Skull Candle Halloween Crochet Pattern

Looking for a very simple yet cute Halloween plushie or even decor? Look no further for this is very simple and cute skull candle crochet pattern made for Halloween. The skull cannot stand up by itself so it needs to lean on something. I wanted to create a very simple and cute skull, which was a bit of a challenge at first, however, I got thru it and have created it. This is very easy for even beginner though will seem a little advance at first. I promise you it is very simple. You can either crochet, embroidery or use felt for the eyes and nose. I just like to use felt instead since it seems cleaner detail. Any skull outline can be used.  This is a similar pattern to my cat zombie pattern that can be found here.  We will also be assembly the skull piece by piece.
