A quick (and not scary) Halloween project

skeleton shadowbox

My mom is the most creative person I know. She’s also not afraid to try her hand at any project, a trait I so admire. She’s the brains behind today’s project, a cute little Halloween decoration that takes about five minutes to make and is only a smidge scary (that’s my kinda Halloween).

You’ll need:

Three plastic skeletons from the craft store

A shadowbox

Black cardstock

Glue dots/Glue gun

Assembly is simple: Cut paper to fit shadowbox, if needed. Lay out skeletons to determine arrangement. Glue them into place.

Place inside the frame and display.

santa ornaments

My husband inherited these Santa ornaments when his grandparents passed away, and I’m thinking I’ll mount them in a shadowbox too. I might even mount them in this same shadowbox to save money—stash the skeletons after October ends and display the ornaments in their place for Christmas. Anyone else got Christmas on the brain? •
