Halloween Fun

I'm going to post this on both sites because when I first saw it, my first thought was how brilliant and how easy!
My thanks to Nancy Cronin for her permission to post it. Here in her own words is the tutorial:
I was playing around with one of those easily available skellie and unfinished boxs that you can find at Micheals.

1. cut the skellie at all of the joints
2. drill a hole in the joints
3. glue a wire in the joints. Now you can reposition him any way you want.

4. I fleshed him out a bit so that his clothes hung better
5. the box is covered in faux cement blocks. I tore apart an egg carton , glued them to the box, and dabbed paint here and there. He has a mask in his hand but its hard to see in the picture.

Here's another skellie rising from his grave. Guess it's hard to keep a good man down!

If you'd like to see some of the other things that Nancy's done, here's the link:
