This year my boys are very much into Halloween.  Together we have been having a great time decorating and doing fun Halloween activities.   On a recent trip to the dollar store we found some skeleton straws and brought them home to come up with something to use them for.

After my skull light project a couple weeks ago, I had my string of twinkle lights sitting on my craft table, and the skeleton straws right beside them.  A fantastic idea was born right on the spot!  [click here for details]

Project Estimate:

  • skeleton straws, 5/$1 ( used two packages)
  • twist-ties, on hand
  • twinkle lights, on hand (I used a 20-light strand)

Total:  $2 and up!
