Cotton Swab Skeletons--Pinned it, Did it!

I saw this pin on Pinterest and could not resist.  What a perfect craft for Halloween and we had everything on hand!

We used:
  • Cotton swabs (or as Tottie calls them--"ear waxers"
  • Glue
  • Wax paper (to prevent glue from getting all over the table
Unfortunately, the photo in the pin did not link back to a website for directions so we had to guess how to make it.  Not too complicated though, we simply followed the photo...

This craft was a little more difficult than I thought it was going to be.  Getting cotton swabs to stick together with glue is not as easy as it looks!  

Cutting the cotton swabs was fun though!  They are hard to cut (at least ours were) so when we snipped them, the small end flew across the kitchen!  Tottie thought it was funny!
Hint:  Make sure to let your skeleton dry completely before you try moving him!  He's fragile and can easily come unglued! 
Our skeleton vs. their skeletons. We only made one because Tottie got frustrated and I didn't want to waste any more cotton swabs.
We hung our finished skeleton in our front window.
