This can be a fun project to do with a partner or a group of friends with a nice glass of wine or a cup of coffee.  Everyone can make their own bones and add them to the pile.  Each should be a little different.  I like to put them in a wood chest or make a cardboard box that’s covered with black paper. It’s also nice to add some decorations along with the bones.  Spiders, bugs, skeleton…even LED lights.  Anything creative will work.
