Old Bones- Monster in the Closet

The monsters are on parade at There are scary ones, and cute ones, and some under the bed. Please go over and visit Zan as she presents the "Monsters in the Closet" parade.

Quiet! What's that rustling I hear?
I pull up the covers and cringe in fear.
From the deepest shadows there comes a sound.
Like something crawling along the ground.
Slithering, whispering, sighs, and moans
And the clattering sound of creaky old bones.
Deep in the closet, my worst nightmare
With grinning teeth and patchy hair.
Watching and waiting til the lights go out.
He's in there now, I have no doubt.
For this fun swap, you were to create the monster that lived in the closet that set you nerves on edge. This is "Old Bones". He is quite the scary fellow and I wouldn't want him rustling around among my shoes and clothes. He is created from polymer clay, bead bones and marble eyes. He sits on a painted wooden block, and is draped with tattered cheese cloth. This horror holds his own head, and I'm afraid he might want yours or mine.


  1. Wow! I love "OLD BONES" he is very scary indeed! I really like his fingers too :) they are the fingers you would imagine grabbing you in the middle of the night!


  2. This is absolutely the coolest Monster Doll! I can't believe he is going to be coming my way to live out his days under my bed! LOL Fantastic job on him and I can't wait to get him. What a great parade of monsters over there at Zan's. THis was a lot of fun and I'm glad I got you as my swap partner! Your Monster is heading your way next week. HOpe you like him.
