20 Skeleton Crafts for Halloween

By now you know that I love Halloween; and you should also know that I really, really love skeletons. I affectionately call them “skulligans.”

Turns out that death (and skulls) became associated with Halloween because October was the end of the growing season.

“It was a time when some believed the ghosts of the dead — and presumably their skulls and all of those rattling skeleton bones — returned to Earth.”


A little creepy I guess, but I’ve never thought of skulls like that. They’re just a natural part of life, and we all have one!

Plus they are a great symbol for Halloween crafts.

There are so many things you can do with skeletons, and the great thing about them is that the projects can be as fun and silly or as spooky as you like.

Sometimes even a spooky looking skulligan has a smile on its face, which ends up putting a smile on mine, too. If you love skeleton crafts as much as I do, check out these 20+ ideas ranging from party to home decor.

Take a peek, and let me know what you think in the comments.
