Iron Craft 40: Bones

Time for some Halloween fun! I saw this project in a magazine a long time ago. It was probably a BHG publication. I couldn't find it on-line but I will be happy to provide the proper attribution if you let me know.

All you need is a bunch of lollipops and a roll of crepe paper.

Twist crepe paper around the tops of four lollipops. The better you cover them up, the more bone-like your bones will look at the end.

When you get the end of covering the last lollipop, start twisting the paper around the sticks to wrap them tightly together.

Take the two sets of lollipops and wrap them together.

Keep wrapping until the sticks are completely covered and the center is thick and looks like a bone. You can usually just pull the crepe paper tightly around the back and it will stick. Since I hand these out to the trick-or-treaters, I secure it with a tiny bit of tape.

Different sizes of lollipops give you different sizes of bones.
