DIY Skeleton Decor with Flowers

skeleton decor with flowers

I’ve been seeing these skeletons with flowers all over Pinterest and I had to make one! Mine won’t just be Halloween decor though. It’s going to stay up all year around.

A friend described it as macabre. I don’t disagree with that but still, I find it so beautiful! Maybe it has more to do with the vibrant flowers against the neutral skeleton body than it does with the topic in general.

I bought all of my supplies at Michaels, but you could get similar items on Amazon or at Joanne’s. Here’s are the exact supplies:

Step 1: remove extremities

First, remove all arms and legs from the skeleton’s torso. You might need a screwdriver for this.

Remove the head as well.

Step 2: Hot glue flowers to the pelvis

Begin to pull your flowers apart and arranging them in an order you like.

Then, hot glue them onto the pelvis individually.

Layer the flowers as you go. Don’t forget the greenery!

Step 3: Hot glue flowers to the rib cage

Hot glue your flowers to the skeleton’s rib cage. Be sure you layer like you did in step 2. Greenery should be added in between flowers.

Keep adding pieces until you’re happy with the order.
