Milk jug skeleton


There are a lot of milk jug skeletons rattling around the internet for Halloween. This one is mine.

Some tutorials recommended saving eight milk jugs for this project, I think I could have gotten by with six.

One for your skeleton's head, one for the rib cage. Turn one upside down for the hip bone. Two handles make the shoulders, two jug necks form the waist, and the arm and leg bones are all cut out of jug corners. Secure neck and waist with hot glue, use fishing line everywhere else.

Hang up somewhere where the wind won't cause too much clattering -- or do, if that's what you're into.



I do think he would benefit from the addition of a bow tie and a heart.
