These glitter bones are an eerie but elegant decoration for Halloween!

Tools and Materials...
Skull and bones
Glitter
Craft paper
Craft brush
Glue
Large shallow bowl or tray
Plastic bag

Bones How-To:
1. Working over a sheet of craft paper or newspaper, use a craft brush to apply glue to half of a skull or bone.

2. Hold object over a large shallow bowl or tray. Spoon ultrafine opaque glitter over glued surface, making certain the glitter falls into all the crevices and sockets. Place on a tray; let dry for at least an hour.

3. Tap or brush off any excess glitter. Repeat gluing and glittering process on uncoated surface of each piece, and check to see if other areas require a touch-up.

It is a perfect Halloween decoration. I just happen to have some extra bones laying around here -- now I know what I can do with them. Poor puppy --- he was looking forward to them (haha).
