Step 5

Roll the handle/clay mixture between the palms of your hands to completely cover the handle.

Note:

  • Roll in a way that all of the excess clay is pushed to the bottom of the fork handle.

Step 6

Form the excess at the bottom of the handle into a ball-like shape and gently push in the bottom center. Manipulate until you have what looks like the end of a bone.

Step 7

Set somewhere to dry for 24-48 hours.

Tip:

  • Dry time will vary based on the thickness of the clay.

Step 8

Repeat steps 1 through 7 until the desired number of utensils are made. The container linked to above will do the entire pack of forks.

Step 9 (Optional)

If your bones seem to be falling apart once they are dry do the following steps:

  1. Very gently sand the bones. Clean off any dust.
  2. Next, tape off the tines of your fork with painters tape.
  3. Spray the clay with an acrylic sealer so that it is completely sealed.

These are super cool and creepy! If you don’t have time to cover all of your utensils, cover 8 to 10 of them and display them on your tablescape for décor. As you can see, they look awesome in the Gentleman’s box from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer “Hush” episode (that tutorial is coming your way next week!).

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
  • C’mon Get Crafty

    This is so creative! Love this idea for a Halloween party!

  • Haha, this is so neat!! 🙂

    • Thanks! The kiddos loved them… of course, they turned them into drumsticks, but at least they had fun. Lol
