Skeleton Jar (Day of the Dead Part 2)

You may remember this creepy couple that I know? Well, I was finally able to put my finishing touches on their residence and best friend.

That's right, children avert your eyes! I took the hacksaw to Fluffy... Fluffy started out as a key chain that looked like this.

Next comes the hard part... chop off his adorable head. (Why is he still smiling??)

Grab another skeleton head.

Hot glue the skeleton head onto the dog's body.

I took a picture of the molding paste I used to put all over the dog.

Let the molding paste dry completely. This can take the whole day depending on how much you put on.

Paint 'er up with browns, blacks and grays.

Detail with the white.

Now the bride and groom have man's best friend to keep them eternal company. But they still need a place to live... Find a jar and line it with some greenery.

I also added a tree that I glittered and a fence. (Both were cut out with a Cricut machine.)

Plop your bride and groom in there along with Fluffy and they will all live happily ever after!

Here is a picture of the back, so you can see the glittered tree.

And one more spooktacular look from the front.

I will be linking up to these parties.
