An Easy Skeleton Horse for Halloween

An easy Halloween prop. Cover a horse (or any animal) black, then paint on their skeleton. All rights reserved, Debbie Morrow

Scouring garage sales and thrift stores is a favorite past time for this frugal gal. Finding this horse made my shopping day. Originally, it was an average white and black patched horse. But what I saw was something entirely different.

A Halloween prop in the making:

  1. Cover your horse (or other animal) entirely with black acrylic paint ( or black spray paint could work too)
  2. Google skeleton images of horses (or animal of your choosing)
  3. Paint out the skeleton with white paint. Don’t worry about mistakes. You can always go back and use black paint again to fix.

Probably the shortest tutorial on my blog, but kinda cool results. Don’t you agree?

    • Welcome to my site! It’s on my to-do-list for this weekend. I have several tutorials of my recent props I’ve made for 2018, but I haven’t even had the time to post. I’ve already made (minus the horse) about 10 new ones this year. I’m just finishing up Pennywise from the movie “IT”, today. Working with the horse is next. I’m gonna start putting them out this weekend and it should be completed by the first weekend in Oct. for sure! Thanks for your interest and if you ever have any crafts or tutorials you’d like to share, let me know and I’ll give you a guest post. Take care!
