Meet Mr Paper Bones! With Halloween just around the corner our DIY paper skeleton is the perfect project to decorate your home in time for any haunting guests. Our paper skeleton is 19″ tall from head to foot and is made from two sheets of white card stock. His limbs are attached with antique brass brads like these ones from Tim Holtz making him fully posable! If you have a cutting machine you can use the SVG file below to print and cut. If you want to cut your paper skeleton by hand simply download the PDF, print the templates onto your card and trim with scissors and a craft knife. If you are a fan of Mr Paper Bones, pop back to our Coffin Treat Box post to find a mini version of the little man complete with black card coffin.

For more frighteningly good DIY Halloween inspiration take a look at our Pumpkin Decals, Halloween Candy Huggers, Halloween Treat Bags or our spooky 3D Paper Village. And as you prepare for a ghostly October 31st, don’t forget to share your Halloween projects with us across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram by tagging me @liagriffith. See you there! ~ Lia
