Inside: 28 easy skull and skeleton craft ideas and DIYs you will want to make for a spooky Halloween.
Every Halloween, my son would wear the same costume, a cute skeleton. It was, in fact, a pair of skeleton PJs. He would wear them day and night for the whole month of October! As he grew, the trousers became so short that they practically ended at his knees.
He finally agreed to get a new costume. But this was also a full-body, stretchy skeleton that covered his head. It was scary rather than cute, but at least by then, he only wore it one day of the year!
As we always associate Halloween decorations with skeletons, I have collected some of the best skeleton craft ideas. Many are easy and affordable to make, as Halloween isn’t just for kids! I’m sure the adults would enjoy making many of them, too.

This homemade card stock skeleton is so bold and perfect, and you can see him as you’re pulling up the block. It’s so cool. I positioned him so that his hands needed to be holding something; you could put anything that you wanted in his hands.
