Paper Plate Skeleton

Here’s a cute little skeleton to hang on the wall.  This is a simple kid’s Halloween craft that uses paper plates and paper fasteners.  Make up an entire gaggle of goofy or scary skeletons to decorate your window or walls and try out our other Kidfunideas Halloween projects too.

What you'll need:

  • 10“ heavy-duty paper plates or white cardstock

  • Scissors

  • Black Marker to draw in the face

  • Metal paper fasteners 

  • String for hanging

  • Tape

How to make it:

  1. Print out the Skeleton pattern pieces.

  2. Cut out the body parts from 12-inch white heavy-duty paper plates or white cardstock.  Make the holes in the body shapes with the hole punch where indicated on the pattern. 

  3. Draw in the eyes, nose, and mouth on the head shape with a marker.

  4. Assemble your skeleton using metal paper fasteners or string.

  5. To hang your skeleton, make a loop with string and attach  to the back of the head  with tape.
