It’s October! And the spooky season is upon us. I want to show you some fun ways to use poseable skeletons in your home for Halloween. There are so many fun ideas to try. I have a 5 ft poseable skeleton and a 3 ft skeleton. They are so fun to add some Halloween vibes to your home this year. Let’s check it out!
Trick or Treat
You can put your skeleton sitting or standing on your front porch ready to give candy to all the kids on Halloween. Have the bowl of goodies in the skeleton’s lap or on a stool/table near the skeleton. It would be so fun to have one of those motion detecting skeletons that lights up with movement!
After my skeleton was Captain Jack Scarrow, the next year I changed the name to Grace Skelly. It’s fun to dress her up in basic fall girl gear or as a witch. You can even Google “skeleton names” for some fun options!
Grace Skelly is cooking up something in the kitchen. I posed her near the stove with an apron and a cauldron of fake apples. I mean, you gotta have poison apples for Halloween!
Grace Skelly back in the kitchen. This time she’s prepared a fun charcuterie board! Looks like she used some delicious popcorn and fruit. I hope it’s not poisoned! 😉
Grace Skelly is all ready to go Trick or Treating. I used a wig with pink and purple clip in extensions with a witch hat and added a light weight treat bag. Most of these skeletons are easy to stand up on their own, but you could always prop or lean them into something.
Dining with Skeletons
I really love Halloween. And I love a tablescape. I’ve created several Halloween tablescapes over the years…they are so fun! One year I had Captain Jack Scarrow at the table. The tablescapes consisted of flowers, skulls, and bones for a creepy chic look. I also added a spider on each table setting. They look kinda real at first glance! 😂
I had Grace Skelly at the table the next year. I added the cauldron, because of course she’s having dinner from a cauldron…she’s a witch! I added a faux rat on her plate and her friendly feline skeleton as her dining companion. I also gave her a faux fur shawl….because she’s fancy!
I hope you enjoyed this and were inspired just a little. Halloween is a fun time of the year…it doesn’t have to be super scary. (I’m not a fan of horror stuff). Try adding a skeleton or two in your home for Halloween this year for some spooky fun. Let me know in the comments what you would name your skeleton!
Until next time Treasure Hunters!
