Halloween Craft – Skeletons

Another fun Halloween craft from the Family Fun magazine. Really if you don’t get Family Fun – get it!! lol

You’ll need q-tips, cotton balls, glue and wax paper. We did not use wax paper at first, but I recommend using it! Our skeleton stuck to the paper.

Arrnage your skelton however you want it and glue. Add a cotton ball and eyes, nose and mouth. I used pieces of black construction paper. After our skeltonds dried, I needed to add more glue to pieces that had fallon apart.

Finally all dried, I added a piece of fishing line and hung one from our table chandalier and one on a glass cabinet.

Super easy and lots of fun!!
