Spooky Skeleton Vase

I got the inspiration 
for this project here

I had the vase 
and got the skeletons
from the Dollar Tree
they have glass vases as well
I had thought I would
need extra twine but didn't

First Take the skeletons off the 
twine and take the knots out

put a dab of glue on the back of the head
and attach to the vase

dip the twine end in the glue so it won't fray

attach it behind the back of the skeleton
take the twine
and wrap around the skeletons
do the same w the glue 
in the twine at the end
and tuck it under

I did a few twists

I had my hsb collect
some twigs 
I was going tp spray them black
but changed my mind

I kind of like the stark look of this

I added some gold jewels
 so the eyes glowed

I added some bats
they are foam stickers from
I thought there
 were more black
ones in the bag

I had one skeleton
that had a leg missing so
you can see the
surprise at the bottom

Make it For Monday
Just Something I Whipped Up Monday
Making Monday Marvelous
