Craft with Human Body and Medical Clip Art

The human body has all sorts of parts that lend themselves to crafts. For instance, who among us hasn't traced their hand to make a Thanksgiving turkey? Very few.

For a more sophisticated approach, try out this anatomy clip art to use in all sorts of ways. Graphics and images of the human body can be used in crafts of all kinds like human head pin cushions,

Anatomy clip art is great for all occasions but especially for Halloween invitations or decorations!

If I said you had a beautiful body

(body clip art, that is),

would you hold it against me?

If yes, would you use glue, a stapler, or tape?

Make a Human Head Pin Cushion

Use your head!

A fun way to make a pin cushion that is unexpected but oh-so-clever is to use a human head for the design. For fun, Karen at The Graphics Fairy, took this clip art and instead of numbers, labeled the parts of the brain related to crafts. Evidently some of us have brains that are divided into the following portions: Sew, Create, Make, Craft, Glue, Art, and so on. So fun, and so true.

This clip art would also lend itself to making sachets, a throw pillow (stop tossing my head around, please!), or appliqued to a tee-shirt.
