Halloween crafts: costume awards

Let's start off with halloween is my favorite time of year. The weather is awsome (love fall, mainly because i didn't have it growing up) and any time I can dress up I do, duh!.

So this year we took over the halloween party from a few friends of ours and planning has been in process for a few weeks now.

We had to have awards and I decided on doings these guys, which i found on pinterest

This is Mizerella's rendition from 102 wicked things to do

pretty awsome right?

I found these 16in skeletons at Dollar tree picked up 4 and found these plaques for less than 75 cents and some gold spray paint with a 40% off coupons from michaels and I was all set.

So take your skeleton and follow her instructions. I took my joints apart and glues them together on the plaque and than spray paint

This is my award for best costume. (yes, he is side ways because he is cool liek that)

This is the award for best couple or group

pretty cool right? I have one more to make but it was so easy.
What do you use as awards? 
Want one, well you have to earn it. 



  1. This is ADORABLE! I went out immediately to buy everything to make them. What kind of glue did you use? I'm having trouble getting my skeletons to stay upright.


  2. Hey Lauren thanks for the comment. Infused hot glue but took them apart at each joint and glued the joints together starting at the feet. Let me know how it goes.


Thanks for leaving me some love.
