I made these skeleton hand Halloween invitations two years ago for my “Boneyard Bash” party. They are a little time assuming but totally worth it. All my guests thought they were to die for. They even glow in the dark!
Supplies: 8 ½” x 11” Paige card stock paper, Lipton tea bags, a mug, scissors, a stove, thin tip Sharpie/black pen, skeleton hands (from the Dollar Tree store), black ribbon, a paint brush, glow in the dark paint, and black thread.
1. Warm water in a mug in the microwave. Not too hot because then you won’t be able to hold the tea bag. Dip the Lipton tea bag in the mug and let the tea bag absorb the warm water. Pat the tea bag numerous times on one side of the paper and squeeze the tea bag to get tea drops onto the paper. This process will give your paper an old worn out look, almost like an old treasure map.3. Using a Sharpie or a pen write out your Halloween invitation.
I wrote in cursive: The Guzman’s invite you to their “Boneyard Bash” on Friday, October 30, 2009 at 5pm. Party will be held at (your address). Shake your bones to killer beats. Spine chilling movies will be shown. Try your hand at Poker. Don’t be a bonehead and please R.S.V.P. by Oct. 23rd. Call (your name) at (your phone number). We are dying to see you.
