Pieces of a plastic skeleton make a creepy entrance in this simple outdoor Halloween décor idea. Make the Halloween craft: Prop up an odd-shape piece of hardscape material at an angle. (In place of very heavy rock, use a piece of foam core, painted and streaked gray.) Tuck skeleton hands and skull, and feet if desired, in a pose and scatter fallen leaves.
It is a hit! Best if there are some adults to reassemble when the little ones go crazy pulling the sticks! Balls are from Walmart, about $15 for 100. Sticks are bamboo plant braces from Home Depot that I cut in half. I used wire staples in the boards with zip ties to attach the wire frame so it can be dissembled easily. More
