Halloween Trophies

This year I decided that instead of buying those cheap plastic costume trophies from the Halloween store, I would make them instead! Honestly, it's the least I can do considering the amount of time and effort our friends put into making their costumes for our annual Halloween party. I saw these cool trophies on Pinterest and used it for inspiration.

We give out four awards each year: Best Couple, Scariest, Most Creative, and Funniest. Here are my interpretations of those themes.

Just look at the raw passion these two have for each other. Best couple indeed.

Scariest? I'm so scary, I can take off my head.

Ah monsieur, you arrrr lookiing to win le cree-ah-teev trophee? Sankfooly ah am le expére on sooch mattres!

I accessed the six-year-old child part of my brain for this one. Potty humor is always funny to six-year-olds (and some adults).

I love these guys so much I may have to make more just to have some to keep!


  1. These are wonderful! Wonderful!!!

    I have a strand of skellies that I've only used one of and have been deliberating on what to do with the rest. Problem solved!

  2. These are truly amazing. I'm so happy and honored to have taken not one but two of these prized beauties home!

  3. Where did you get the skeletons and the bottom plaque at? These are awesome.

    1. The dollar tree has the skeletons. I'm looking for bases too.

  4. I got my skeletons at a dollar general and a dollar tree and the bases you can buy at hobby lobby, Michaels, Joann's (craft stores) but I cut mine out of scrap pressed wood in squares, sanded and painted!

  5. What kind of glue did you use? I've tried super glue adhesive, quick dry super glue and a hot glue gun. None of which have held the pieces together.

  6. Pls inform me on
    How can I buy?

  7. How did you bend their limbs? I was toying with the idea of dipping them in very hot water to soften it.

  8. A lot more people ought to look at this and understand this side of the story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular given that you definitely possess the gift. 메이저사이트

  9. Finally a simple to understand information, appreciated!
