Halloween DIY: Skeleton Animal Glow Ups

My entire house is fully prepped for Halloween! It’s been so fun to see the transformation. Our latest spooky DIY are these Skeleton Animal Glow Ups.

I have been back and forth with sharing these. They’re so creepy, but Mila loves them. Honestly, they’re sort of like a creepy Elf on a Shelf.

They were so easy to make and they fit our Halloween aesthetic. I found them at the Dollar Store for a dollar a piece. Not a bad price in my eyes; especially because it was a craft for both of us and they look so cute.

Cute as in… creepy. They can be both, right?

I will say, Mila had fun painting them, but it was a little tricky. She did them for a while, but I ended up finishing them.

If you do paint them and your kiddo wants to carry them around, I would suggest spraying them with a clear coat. It just helps the paint hold up a little longer. If you’re keeping them out of their hands, it should be okay!

Originally, I had them all on our dining room table. Like I said though, they’ve become our unofficial Halloween Elves on a Shelf.

I actually love how they turned out and will keep them for the years ahead.

Somehow they mesh really well with the white pumpkins and the general feel of my house. We like random things, so they make me smile.

Your Halloween decorations don’t have to be grand to make a statement. Sometimes all it takes is a little paint and a animal skeletons from the dollar store!


What’s your favorite way to decorate for this holiday: scary or pretty? Let me know in the comments.
