What’s the best part of Halloween (besides the candy)? Scaring anyone who dares to enter your house! I like small displays in unexpected corners that take people by surprise. You don’t have to spend tons of money coming up with and creating spooky decorations.
My first stop is always Goodwill. I found a black candle stand for $1.99, a plastic skeleton head for 99 cents, and a top hat Christmas ornament for 50 cents.
I cut a hole in the bottom of the skeleton big enough for a battery tea light. Then I glued a couple of “crystals” in the eye sockets. For the hat, I replaced the Christmas decorations with a bow made from tulle, ribbon and a mini pumpkin. A little hot glue and everything stays in place.
I think I’ll make a whole collection of these for my Halloween party. An entire family of skeleton heads will look great on the mantle!
