candy box head skeletons: HALLOWEEN BASH BLOG HOP

YIPPEE it's Friday and day 5 of our Halloween Bash blog hop! 
glad you could join us on this fabulous Friday for more halloween ideas from me and my talented blogging friends! 
 hopefully you've been following along all week 
checking out all the fab posts. 
today i am happy to say it's my turn for my halloween idea to share with you!
 let's check it out shall we?

i had some skeletons in my closet that i used. lol
and i wanted to fix them up.
no worries, this won't hurt a bit...
put those heads aside for another project that you or i come up with.
now take those skeleton boxes and do this:

let's paint those heads white shall we?

uh oh the heads are white and the bodies are 
old beige-looking-whatever color.
no wonder they're not feeling it.

we gotta fix that, but first, 
let's fix the vision issue.

so hey now the bodies match the heads by lightly spraying the front of the body with white spray paint. 
looks much better :)
ok one last thing to do.
i got the skull candy from dollar tree but you can fill it up with whatever candy you want.

now that's using your noggin'...

uh oh, looks like someone lost an eye?
so much for a family portrait.
well, perhaps he'll be back when he clears his head?

so there ya go with my crazy halloween idea.
and as you know, the fun ideas don't stop here!

  2. Oh my gosh. Such a NEAT idea!

    Thanks for joining the Link Up this week!

    1. yay! happy you like my silly skeletons Jess! they cracked me up when i morphed them together :)

  3. Hmmm....having a nurse in the family I can tell you that hearing "this won't hurt a bit" is the signal to RUN! But I'm sure glad these skellies missed the warning because their heads were already pried off! These are just adorable and so fresh and original! Perfect little favors to sit at each place at a party!

    1. LOL! you 're so funny J! i'm so used to sayin" "this won't hurt a bit" that it just goes right over my head-oopsies! and it would make a big impact seeing all these skellies on everyone's plates holding the kiddo's name. you're always thinking ahead :>D

  4. Hahahah skeletons dialogue is precious! Loving this idea :)
    I would love if you share your skeletons with my fall themed party- Big Autumn Bash,so I can feature you:)
