How To Make A Fun DIY Skeleton Cage For Halloween

When you are decorating for your Halloween party, you don’t have to spend a lot of money. This is why I do most of my shopping for my crafts at Dollar Tree. You can make our own DIY Skeleton Cage for Halloween for only about $4.

It’s so inexpensive to make and you could make many of the them for your Halloween party. Just hang them around and change them up.

Everything here was purchased at DT except that I already had the spray paint and zip ties on hand. You can also use shower curtain rings instead of zip ties if you have those.

Have fun with this and add anything to it that you would like for it to have.

Instructions

The first thing you will need to do is spray paint the baskets if they are any other color other than black. Make sure you let they paint dry completely.
