How to make a full skeleton. Perfect to hang on the front door for Halloween! A simple DIY craft tutorial for the Apostrophe S Craft Kit, Mr. Bones.

This year I am making a full-size skeleton that will hang on my front door. This guy is known as Mr. Bones and is an Apostrophe S kit which means that everything you need to complete this project is included in the kit! The cost of the Mr.Bones kit is $39 plus S&H. This kit is no longer available.
