Here’s a tutorial for creating a Halloween decoration that’s really different and unique! Better yet, the materials are super cheap. The skeleton is from the Dollar Tree (and comes in a pack of 4!), and the butterfly wings are from a craft store. The only other materials you need are things you probably already have: some black paint (for aging the bones a little and darkening the eye sockets), scissors, and a hot glue gun. I’m thinking I might need an army of these little guys . . . .

Oh Instructables, you never disappoint…
This week Instructables user ZombieGorilla has posted a tutorial on how to make a massive Lego Skeleton! Because EVERYONE needs one of those in their lives!
There’s not much else to say really… GIANT LEGO SKELETON… beats garden gnomes and fake flamingoes any day…
I think this is fantastic! And I would imagine this would be fairly easy to replicate: start with a quality skeleton, prime and paint it with some good metallic paint, add a dogtag and figure out some blades. The priming and painting would take the longest. I’m not sure how I would do the blades. Maybe six matching knife blade with the handles removed, but that would make them dangerous. Maybe find someone who can cut some metal.
Either way, this is an awesome decoration!
I’ve seen Christmas trees decorated in so many different themes, Jack Skeleton, Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter but I do believe that this particular tree takes the prize for Most Unique!
Geyser of Awesome has shared a wonderful Cthulhu tree that is way beyond AWESOME! Using a Cthulhu stuffie as a tree topper and some finger tentacles (we all have those around the house, right?), they’ve created the ultimate in Christmas Tree DOOM!
Skulls are a big deal in my house. We love them. So when I saw this Sugar Skull Clutch I fell in love. Mindy Humphrey makes these vinyl clutches, and other, super cool “Beer Gear” (jewelry, wallets and more, made from 6 pack containers). All of it is aweosme and all of it is available at her Etsy shop, MindysDesigns.
