DIY Halloween Fairy Fashion Inspired Skeleton Couture Tutorial

Crafty friends! Who’s searching for a quick and easy last minute Halloween craft? Look no further! These Halloween fairy-fashion inspired skeletons are so cute! I had so much fun dressing up mini-skeletons for a Skeleton Couture photo shoot! These make for a fun and creative party activity, a cute Halloween party favor, a creepy but stylish decorative accent or whip up your own type of hide and seek or ‘elf on the shelf’ inspired game for Halloween.

What I did:

I simply created fairy-inspired fashion accessories for the skeletons using butterflies, feathers and flowers and secured them to the skeletons with hot glue. It really doesn’t get much easier!

I have to admit, it kind of brought back some childhood memories of playing with paper dolls and Barbie dolls (although in a creepier Halloween kind of way). lol What fun!
