BOO!

Skeleton Wreath by staarlight, on Flickr

We have been decorating our house for Halloween, and we were in need of something to one-up the guy down the street with awesome blinking eyes in his bushes. The bone wreath tutorial I had saved from last year turned out to be just the ticket.

The bones are from two "lawn skeletons.'" Basically, they're hollow plastic arms, legs, and a head that you poke into the ground to make it look like a skeleton is clawing its way out. The ones I bought were assembled at the joints with small screws, which were easy enough to remove.


Then I laid them out and glued it all together. Once I figured out the right glue to use -- high-temp hot glue -- it came together quickly. [I detailed my trials and tribulations with adhesives on my blog.] Add a fake black rose from the dollar store, and he's ready to spook trick or treaters!


If you want to make your own, I used this great tutorial from Meg at Mega Spooky. Happy Halloween, everyone!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I love the rose in the teeth - a great touch!  I have had my own Halloween decoration crafting adhesive tribulations this week and offer you my sympathy.
