Halloween Skeleton Ideas

There’s two ways you can make your very own Halloween skeleton – with Q-tips or macaroni. Here’s how to do each: For the Q-tip Skeleton all you need is:

  • Black construction paper
  • Q-tips
  • White paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Draw a skeleton skull on the white paper & cut it out & glue it to the black construction paper. You will use the Q-tips to make the skeleton’s bony body. Arrange the Q-tips to make its arms, legs, ribs, etc do what you want. Cut the Q-tips into smaller pieces when “building” the joints. Once you have laid out your skeleton the way you want it, glue all the Q-tips on the black paper & you have your own fragile halloween friend.

The Macaroni Skeleton requires some knowledge of the human skeleton. Gather up the following materials:

  • Black construction paper
  • Glue that  dries clear
  • Lima beans
  • Short, small macaroni in a tube
  • Thin, twisted macaroni
  • Elbow noodles
  • Small shells
  • Spaghetti
  • Black permanent marker

Build your halloween skeleton starting at the head & working down. Use the lima beans for the head, thorax, & hips); short, small macaroni for the spine; thin, twisted macaroni for the arms & legs; elbow noodles for the ribs; small shells for the joints; & spaghetti for the fingers & toes. When your skeleton is complete, use the permanent marker to draw  face on the head. Ta da! You have your very own boney buddy for Halloween.
