At Halloween I like to have a big party.
So every year I need some new best costume awards.
A little hot glue, some gold spray paint, and dollar skeletons that have been in a tote since last year.....
have finally found a purpose.

In case you are new to my blog you may have noticed I have a Dollar Store addiction. I sometimes buy things there with no idea exactly what I will do with them but I just know there is some potential.
So yes, I mindlessly spend money on things there all the time. Suze Orman would be yelling at me now.
Anyway here they are the little 12" skellis from Dollar Tree. They are floppy jointed kooky little guys. Something comic about them attracted me and the fact that I could get so many. So I bought them almost two years ago but they have them every year it seems.
Note get em early this is something that will sell out. If you are dollar store shopper you know, buy Halloween in August.... Christmas in October etc.
Found these little plaques in different shapes at Michael's craft store. They ranged from fifty cents to a dollar.
So using my trusty Hot Glue Gun I start at the feet and work up. I broke the limbs and glued them back on in the pose I wanted. That gives them a little more range of movement.
I plan on making these into best costume awards so I posed some appropriately.

|I clipped there little hanging loops of their heads as well.|
I played a round with them. I was thinking these would be fun over the kitchen cabinets as well.
Just some skeletons having a good time. Oh you could add accessories like a little apron, and chef hat, a mini wine glass. a little feather boa.... OMG! Cute potential!
