Crafting Is in Our Bones! 

These skeleton earrings have great detail and are so simple to put together. We recommend using a Cricut if you have one because it will make it so much easier to cut these skeletons out of shrink film. Just download the SVG file below and make sure to cut on the “Acetate” setting. If you don’t have a cutting machine, you can download the PDF pattern and cut the skeleton pieces with scissors. 

Using shrink film makes this craft wearable. We used clear matte shrink film for these skeleton earrings, but you could also use white shrink film. Or maybe another color would be fun? You could use different colors of jump rings, too. We used gold, but you could get black or orange jump rings. It’s up to you! 

We’ll be making a skeleton shirt soon to go along with these skeleton earrings, so stay tuned for a more complete Halloween outfit! These earrings would also be cute with our bat wings headband. You could also wear them on their own if you want to dress up just a little bit for Halloween and not wear a full costume. 

How do you plan on wearing your skeleton earrings? If you make Mr. Shrinky Bones earrings, we want to see them! Make sure to share your DIY pictures with us on Instagram using the hashtag #MadeWithLia.


  1. Cut shrink film on cutting machine. If using a Cricut, cut on the “Acetate” setting (always test a small piece first!).
  2. Bake shrink film according to package directions. Let cool completely.
  3. Attach all parts with gold jump rings and top of skeleton head to an earring hook.
