DIY // Glow in the Dark Skeleton Costume Tutorial

October 20, 2015

We are getting ready for Halloween over at our house, and when I asked my four year old what he would like to be for Halloween this year, he immediately replied, “A Skeleton!!”  I was happy to oblige!  I just love a classic Halloween Costume!
I’m the type of mom that loves a good DIY project, and while I know you can purchase a skeleton costume, a handmade touch to my kids’ costumes is always SO much fun for me!  I love that you can add a little bit of a unique touch with a few modern looking skeleton bones, and my kids get so excited to help with the project!  It only took me about an hour or so start to finish to get a cute homemade Skeleton costume!
I found a black top and bottom at Walmart for only $3.88 each, and I bought some Tulip Fabric Paint in white and glow in the dark (affiliate)!  A pretty cute costume to put together for around $20 or less!
For the full step by step instructions and skeleton bone templates, be sure to head on over to HelloBee where I am sharing this full tutorial!
My little guy couldn’t be more excited for Halloween!  He thinks his costume is just the coolest, and he has told me so several times!  That made it all worth it!
He was also so thrilled that it actually glowed in the dark!  I think he’s going to scare a lot of people this Halloween!  Wink.
I added a black beanie and skeleton gloves (You could totally DIY black gloves with the fabric paint) that I found in a set at Walmart, and his classic Chuck Taylor Converse shoes!  You can also paint their face to look like a fun skeleton!
Happy Haunting!  And, Happy DIY Halloween!
