    Everything in this slideshow

    • Pumpkin Skull Decoration

      Give this eerie white pumpkin skeleton facial features for a fun Halloween candy bowl. Carve a skeleton face with two circle eyes and several vertical rectangles for the mouth. Finish with black marker for the nose and to complete the mouth. For a truly frightful face, place two unwrapped candy mints in the eyes.

    • Scary Skeleton Jars

      Give your living room some black (and white) magic with this easy-to-make sinister sideboard. Fill apothecary jars with black jelly beans and black-and-white candy sticks. Decorate the jars with strips of patterned paper and a picture of a skeleton head. To give the sideboard an overgrown look, top a vintage urn with Spanish moss or spread it around the decorations.

    • Tombstone Decoration

      It pays to advertise, and this stone declares there is always room for one more to join the motley band below. A rotary crafts tool easily carves the realistic lettering and arrow. And a wood file rounds the edges to simulate the look of weathered stone.

    • Skeleton Yard Decoration

      This fellow may have been ill once, but he's much better now -- and with a jaunty tip of his to hat and a ghoulish grin, he's ready to join the festivities. Realistic-looking skeletons are available from seasonal stores and online. Browse theater shops and secondhand clothing stores for new or vintage finery to dress your characters in style.

    • Skeleton Pumpkin Vase

      The white hue of a Lumina pumpkin works perfectly for a funny, skeletal-looking pumpkin face.

    • Haunting Message Tombstone

      A grinning ghoul peers from this tombstone, with its message making a bone-chilling prediction. To create the look, simply cut a hole through the foam tombstone, insert a plastic skeleton head and camouflage the join with spackling.

    • Ghoulish Gifts

      Every wedding reception has a gift table. For this "Halloween wedding" table display, decorative paper-covered boxes are filled with gifts as well as an unexpected skeleton head.

    • Spooky Skeleton Cake

      Trick your party guests into thinking this dessert is a wormy skeleton head. Shhh -- don't tell them it's just made from a cake mix, frosting, and candy!

    • Halloween Tombstone Decoration

      It looks like one fellow has nearly escaped the bonds of the world beyond. To create this illusion, disassemble a fake skeleton and arrange the arms, legs, and head in a petrifying pose. To give the tombstone an aged look, randomly brush on a light coat of verdigris green paint.

      A Skeleton and His Tombstone

      Every monument needs a statue posed on top, and this fellow is happy to oblige. He's wearing a coat of realistic-looking spray-on stone paint to match his monument so he looks as if he's been carved out of stone.
