A few weeks ago I posted about repurposed Halloween decorations including how to make a skeleton out of recycled milk jugs. I finally created my own milk jug skeleton following the steps and diagrams from the tutorial I featured.
This skeleton is not anatomically correct, symmetrical, realistic or as good as my inspiration. I'll admit I had problems cutting all the pieces out and was too lazy to find a better craft knife.
The problems did not end there. The glow-in-the-dark paint leftover from a project in my daughter's room decided not to glow anymore and the beading string I used to put the skeleton together kept breaking. So, I gave up on the paint (we will have the porch light on for trick-or-treaters anyway) and bought clear cable or zip ties to put it together. I highly recommend using cable ties! It was so much easier to put together and will be sturdy for several years.
