A Mod Decoupaged Glittery Skeleton

I dressed up this wood skeleton that I bought from Michaels with my favorite colors, scrapbook paper and lots of glitter, plus vintage rick rack and lace.


I took him apart to paint each piece using Folk Art Paints then I let him dry. On one side I decoupaged an assortment of patterned papers using ModPodge.

For the final step he got a coat of Martha Stewart’s Glitter Paint. I used a glitter paint that corresponded to the color of each piece. I used jewelry wire to put him back together (the wire that came on him was flimsy).

Finally for his hanger I used vintage rick rack and hem lace.
