I have been wanting a life size skeleton in my Halloween decorations for…as long as I can remember probably! All this season I’ve been on the look out for one that I could afford. I also wanted him to fit in with my other decorations. I always flip flop between wanting fun and silly Halloween decorations and scary ones! I love a good creepy front porch! But, I also love more light-hearted ones, especially since I have little kids.
And I know for a fact my three year old appreciates this rainbow skeleton more than a creepy ghoul or something. And, I definitely love it more too!
How fun is this guy?! I just love him, I feel like he could stay out all year almost haha.
The main thing that was holding me back from this fun project was finding a skeleton for the right price! I saw lots for around $60 and while it seemed like a fair price to pay, it was just too much for me for a very temporary porch ornament. Then I finally made it to Zurchers since they got all of their Halloween out and, not only was it a Halloween wonderland, but they had a full size skeleton for only $30! I was so excited, I immediately nabbed him up and painted him that afternoon.
I think every porch and every Halloween celebration needs an ombre rainbow skeleton. like every. single. one. I would definitely recommend spray paint, so you get that nice blending-mixed look. I just used left over spray paints I already had so there was no further expense for me. But a few cans would run you less than $10 so its still a low cost (and very low effort!) project.
