Halloween Skull Garland and Skeleton Costume

I made this crocheted skull garland to decorate for the skeleton-themed birthday party we had at our house last week.  Lucky for us, it also does triple duty as a Day of the Dead and Halloween garland.  Isn't it fun?  It wasn't too difficult, and only took a few evenings to complete - you still have some time to finish yours before Halloween!!  I found the pattern here and attached them together using these basic guidelines.

Here's a quick peek at one of the freezer paper skeleton costumes I made for the boys.  They wore them for their birthday party last week and loved being spooky.  Only A felt like getting his picture taken, but I promise there's another skeleton lurking just outside the frame.  

p.s.  Our fall challenge went oooookaaaaay.  Was that convincing?  It turns out that TV watching is a hard habit to break.  We did decrease our viewing time, but couldn't quite quit.  We're human.  Did anyone else try?  Tell us all about it!


  1. I love this!! It is such an adorable garland! I also like getting a peek at your dining room. Your table and chairs are beautiful!
