Using a Box of Bones

I think it is obvious by now, that I love Halloween. To me, there is something magical about it. Most people say that about Christmas. Christmas would be more enjoyable without the cold and snow in my eyes.


Anyway, throughout the year, I try and find things for cheap or free that I can use at some point later on in the year. When I heard about this, I was so excited. When it finally came, I was a little less excited.

When I opened the box, the bones were everywhere. With my lack of attention, it wasn't in the cards for me to put it together. Plus, there was no holes to even string it together and make it complete.

Then I got to thinking, what can I do with these bones that won't take any work. As I was out there staring at the ground, all the ideas started coming to me.



First, was the bone yard. Random bones coming out of the ground, in similar shapes and sizes. This makes you look like one lazy killer.



Next, I made a bone border. Again I used similar shapes and sizes when it was possible. They really do make a pretty cool bone "fence." All you have to do is stick them into the ground and make sure they stand up straight.



Next, was just the random bone find among the flowers that are still standing. They are partiallly buried and almost look like they are just being uncovered.



Lastily, and probably my favorite section, is the skeleton man. For this, all I did was halfway bury the skull, hands, and feet. I didn't have much room, but you can spread this out more and add in more bones if you like.

I am sure there are many more things you can do with a box of bones, these are just the ones, I thought of and that I thought looked good. If you have any more ideas, please let me know. I am thinking about buying more bones.

Like I said, these are simple. Nothing to do but get creative and dig a bit so they don't fly out with the wind. As always, have fun and Happy Haunting!
