Bob's Escaping

My wife picked up this partial skeleton for a Halloween project for us. My son and I made a mock up of a coffin and headstone from pallet wood. The final display shows the skeleton (named Bob) trying to escape from its grave. We treated it with a clear coat to preserve the wood. We set it up out by the road for passing motorists to see. It was a fun project that we will be able to use for years to come.

    • I intended for this to be in the Halloween Challenge contest. Did I not submit it correctly?

  • Hi, John- this project has been entered as part of the challenge. The segment where entries are viewed is not reflecting the contest entries at the moment- we'll look into that!

    • OK, Thanks. I thought it was suspicious that there were only four entries.
