Spooky Skeleton Garland

I shared my Spooky Skeleton Wreath with you and now it’s time to show you what I did with the rest of the bones… a Spooky Skeleton Garland!

My “bag of bones” didn’t necessarily equal a complete skeleton, so I sorted out the random bits of spine, femurs, and feet and turned it into a gory garnish for my halloween mantel.  These bone pieces are made from a thin plastic, so it was easy to poke holes in the ends with a felt needle and string them together with a black satin ribbon.  (I will confess that this idea came from my husband after my attempts at hot-gluing failed miserably!(

Nothing like a pair of metatarsals flanking your fireplace, right?

My girls totally dig it – and it’s growing on me for sure.  I think, though, this garland may not escape a little glittering before the holiday is over… I do love me some glitter.

Are you guys getting excited for Halloween??  We’ll be doing pumpkins this weekend!
