This science experiment doubles as spooky décor! Make a skull out of Borax crystals

A Borax crystal skull makes for some spooky décor this Halloween.

At our creative table, a simple way to upcycle some old Halloween décor. We’ll take the broken bits of a skeleton and give it at least one more year of new life. The solution is not spray paint.

Crafter Darcie Liptrot says the solution is found in the chemical reaction of an elementary school science project, making those old bones appear like pure pirate treasure.
