Mini skeleton hands are so fun to craft with! I’ve already started stocking up on them for my Halloween crafting.  I find these skeleton hands at Michael’s Craft Stores and they are the perfect size for making quick Halloween accesories.  I had initially purchased a pack so I could make a set of hair clips, and started thinking of other ways to use them.  I came up with a scarf pin and a really fun fascinator!  Here’s how you can make your own.

  • Skeleton hands
  • Fabric Headband
  • Tulle
  • Flowers
  • Pin Backs
How to make the scarf pin:
Use E-6000 to glue the pin to the inside of the hand.  I added pink nail polish to the tips of the fingers for a bit of color, and paired the pin with a Halloween themed scarf from Dollar Tree.
How to make the skeleton hand fascinator:  

1.  Cut a strip of tulle about 12 inches long, scrunch it and fold it in half.  Sew it onto the headband.

2.  Tint white fabric flowers with black ink and a pouncer.  Sew the flowers onto the headband.

3.  Use E-6000 or hot glue to attach the hand on top of the flowers.

4.  Cut a 12 inch piece of black tulle.  Cover the hand and flowers with a piece of tulle, and sew the tulle to the headband.
The hair clip tutorial can be found here.  That’s a really popular tutorial!  I can’t wait to wear my skeleton hand hair clip again this year.  I always get lots of compliments on it.

I can think of lots of other fun ways to use these boney hands, and hopefully I’ll find time to make them soon.  These skeleton hands would make creepy belt buckles, spooky key chains, and haunting pendants.  If only there were more hours in a day to craft all the things!  What would you make with skeleton hands?
