I am back with another quick and easy Halloween craft with my bone hand Halloween vase. This is part of the Craft Lightning series this week. All week long I am posting crafts in the morning that take 15 minutes or less to complete (excluding dry time). Every afternoon I am posting Halloween quick craft features from around the web. If you have missed any of the fun this week head on over and check out the features from day 1, day 2, day 3, day 4, and day 5. Now let me show you how quick and easy this fun vase is to make.

Supplies needed to make this Halloween vase:
- $1.99 container from Goodwill
- $1 skeleton from The Dollar Tree
- Americana gloss enamels for glass in white
- Hot glue and glue gun
How to make a vase for Halloween:
I was inspired by this original Pottery Barn vase but $99 was not happening y’all. So, I came up with this budget-friendly option that anyone can make. Start by painting the container with the white paint. It actually took 3 coats to get really good coverage. Allow the vase to dry well in between coats.
After the container dries, cut the hand off of the skeleton with a pair of scissors and use hot glue to put it on the front of my vase.
Yes that is it. A $1 skeleton hand on a painted Goodwill vase. Looks pretty darn good right? I put it with a few other Halloween crafts that I have made over the years.
The Macbeth Halloween decor pictured is one of my favorite Halloween crafts of all time. You too can make those jars, the witch’s spell, and the cauldron. Just head over to see how.
For now, I will be admiring my cute (and affordable) bone hand Halloween vase. Grab a skeleton at your local dollar store to make your own Pottery Barn knock-off this Halloween. You will love the results.
