Grab some Dollar Store Skeletons, paint them and a small piece of plywood with a good quality silver spray paint. (I used Krylon Metallic Silver spray paint)
When the silver paint is dry, start placing your letters where you want them. Again, I am a big fan of the eyeball technique, but if you're more of a precision person, feel free to measure everything out. We'll wait. Done? Great! Spray paint over the top with a good quality black paint. As previously mentioned, the faux bois situation is what you'll get if you use the cheap-o stuff.
Peel off the letters, let dry, then use a high quality adhesive to glue down the skeletons. (I like E6000 (Goop) ) When dry, just prop it up along with the rest of your Halloween decor. Easy!
Did you know there were 206 bones in the human body? I had to look it up. (Science? Me no likey.) Had I to do it again (which I totally could, because this was so quick and easy) I would list more bones and have smaller text. Other than that, I'm pleased with how it turned out.
