Gorgeous Gold Halloween Skeletons| Dollar Store Halloween Decor idea


Hey Remodelaholics! Welcome back to
our channel! Today we are gonna try a Halloween decor project! So there is this
restaurant that we totally love that’s local, its called Kneaders, here in Utah, and shout out to Kneaders! Anyway they have food, but they also sell really cute
decor! While I was there, they had this awesome, hear no evil, see no evil,
speak no evil – skeleton set! It was so cute! They’re $10 bucks a piece
30 bucks total. It’s not killer, but for Halloween decor, I’m not sure I need to
spend that much money on it! So today, along with The DIY Mommy we are doing a Halloween, dollar store, DIY and Decor project DIY project! Here’s what I did. I
went and bought these little skeletons! They were a dollar! We are going to create
a gold see no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil skeleton set for Halloween. That can sit on your mantle, or can sit on a little
table – whatever you have! It should be fun, it’s gonna be a
little more involved than just buying the set at the other store, but
ultimately there will be three little skeletons, so that’s three dollars. Then I spent about $3.47 for spray paint. Which will be plenty for another
few projects. This was .50 cents and you may have some black craft
paint (optional) and then I got some glitter as well. I got some glitter because the skeletons at Kneaders had a little bit of gold leaf that was also applied onto the skeletons. It looked really cute so I am gonna
try to accomplish that with glitter! So, let’s get started! As far as tools go,
I have a glue gun and a little box cutter. To begin with they have this little loop at
the top, and I’m gonna cut that off. Okay, we need to cut off this little guy at
the top! And I just dented his brain in – don’t dent his brain! There we go These little skeletons will be sitting with their legs dangling, if you’ll
notice they don’t bend very well. In fact – Whoops! I’m going to remove them and
actually hot glue them back in place. So the little thing here, will just
kind of be like a kneecap. Then their arms are the same way. This is as far as it bends, so I might have to pull this one off. Then I can
like cover the mouth of it, or the ears, or the eyes. Additionally, I am going
to just barely cut into one side of the hand so that it will bend. I will
probably fill that in with a little bit of hot glue. Right now, I’m going to
disassemble my skeletons -a little bit. Which is a little more morbid than my channel
usually is! So tell me, what are your favorite products to buy at the dollar
store? Because it’s worth buying certain things but not
everything! Today I saw some really cool boxes for organizing there. Okay so you take this little spot right there- I’m gonna fill up the back
side of it with hot glue, and then I’m gonna stick this on it like that. Let
it start to dry while holding it still. Is there something you hate more than hot glue
gun strings? I am not sure there is something I hate more than that!
Now we are going to… I was trying to sit these guys up on the edge of the
table, and they don’t have a lot of strength! So I’m going to load up some
hot glue gun to their hip sockets, to solidify that joint. And then right on their
bottom to weigh them down a little bit. Then I’m gonna stick them over the
side of the table on this silicon mat to dry. There’s a lot of waiting involved
in this project! So now we have to decide which one is going to be see no evil, hear
no evil or speak no evil. And the speak and the see no evil, are gonna be a lot
easier than the hear no evil, because we have to turn the arm a lot more. So, I’m going
to go ahead and start by putting some glue on the hand of the skeleton to put
over his mouth. Then, I’ve got a glue, where it meets over here. You
can always add more glue after it sets and resecure it. I’m gonna
put some glue on this shoulder socket to keep it in place just around that! But it’s turning out quite cute! This
is the speak no evil no skeleton guy. I might secure his feet so that they hang
properly and don’t fall over! There is the speak no evil guy! Seriously, I can’t tell you enough how nice it is to have a low-temperature glue gun I just got mine at Walmart. You can get them on Amazon I’ll leave a link
down below in the description box. If you want to check one out! This is basically
the same setup as the speak no evil, but instead of putting it on his little
mouth, we are going cover his eyes! I will have to secure this joint, where the shoulder is too loose! Okay now I’m
going to just secure this hand to the eyes. I might do it slightly higher than
the eyes, like on the forehead. Because, I don’t want it to look like
he’s covering his mouth or something different. So these hands are above his eyes, but when you look at it straight on
it looks like he’s covering his eyes! That works for that one, I’m going to set
it aside, let it keep drying. Now, we have the hard one and that is the “hear
no evil”. This one I feel like we need to connect the joint of the elbow
first- because it’s a little trickier! A skeleton doesn’t actually have ears…. So he’s covering his ears! Now we
have all three skeletons all set up and I need to spray-paint them. I need
to go get a box, I’m gonna take it outside stick them in a box and spray
them down. While the paint is wet, just sprinkle it with the glitter so it will
kind dry into the paint. Also, I spray painted one that I didn’t do
anything to, because truthfully if you don’t have time to make the hear no evil,
speak no evil -little guy, you could just spray-paint it gold, and it looks that
much cooler! Alright, there it is on the mantel! We added a couple of the little skeletons to the fall mantel. Look how cute they are gold!! Are they not adorable? Tiger do you remember your line? meow… Are you recording this? So, we are all done making our “hear no evil”, “see no evil”, “speak no evil”, skeletons! I really love the gold! I think it just
elevates the design of it a little bit more. Please make sure you check out the DIY
mommy’s playlist for this dollar store Halloween DIY and Decor challenge! Again, the whole project this was about six dollars! We didn’t end up using the black paint
because I liked it solid gold and the glitter is optional (I kind of liked
it without the glitter stuff)! Please be sure to subscribe! And check out the playlist, also I have an awesome Dollar Tree Christmas decorating
tutorial where you can decorate a whole Christmas tree for just 50 bucks! So
check that out! See ya next week!
