I'm going to show you how to make a very easy skeleton tiki torch for under $10
Step 1: Materials
What you'll need for the project is;
Bag of hollow bones (Walgreens, $7.99)
Tiki Torch (Meijer, $0.99)
A utility knife
A pair of scissors
Step 2: The Skull
Take the utility knife and cut a hole about 1 1/2 inches in the skull about where the spine would attach.
Line up the tiki torch to pick the angle you want the skull. I chose to have it looking upwards a bit.
Cut the top hole larger so it will fit the top of the canister tightly, use the scissors if you need to adjust the size.
Step 3: The Spine
Take the spine piece and use the utility knife to cut both ends off.
Step 4: Assembly
Slide the skull up the shaft to the canister, it should fit tight.
Next slide the spine on until it meets the skull.
If they don't stay up by themselves you can always add a small nail or screw underneath to hold them up.
Step 5: Finished Product
Now you're all set, just add citronella oil and enjoy!
