Frankenstein saw inspiration in the most grotesque of scavenging—here, we took a note from his book and constructed a bare-bones table decoration. The table legs are legs indeed—store-bought faux bones. To make it, trim the thigh bones: Use saw to cut the legs to 1 inch less than the desired table height (to account for tabletop). Next, stabilize the knees: Take each leg apart at the knee; unscrew the hardware, and remove the kneecap. Connect shin bone to thighbone with one double-threaded screw (3/16-by-3 inches). Lastly, stabilize the ankles: Position one foot so it rests flat on the floor, and generously squeeze epoxy into the hinge that makes the ankle flex. Repeat with the remaining legs. Let it dry and cure overnight at least before moving onto the next step. Attach the legs to the table: Decide where you want the legs, and drill pilot holes through tabletop. Place each leg underneath the pilot hole, then screw to attach. Put putty over the screws, and let it dry. Sand until smooth. Paint the tabletop a skeletal white.
What can't you do with these posable skeletons? We have wasted literal hours scrolling through scenes that people have set up both on their lawns and in their houses. All it takes is a little creativity and time and they can take on all sorts of personality.

Since they're life size you can pair them with whatever accessories you have on hand! Just a warning, when you get one you'll probably want to a couple more skeletons.

Is there anything cozier than sitting in front of the fireplace during a windy autumn night? We don’t think so. Encourage folks to settle down in your moody sitting room and get into a spooky state of mind when they take in your delightfully dismal display. The mantel has a sheer spiderweb cloth that can add ambience for dining rooms, living rooms, and entry ways. The black and purple color scheme is dark but elegant with sparkly purple pumpkins as well as silver and purple potion bottles. To make your display playful you can add a fuzzy owl or crafty crow. With a striking color scheme and plenty of sparkle, you’re sure to love your uncanny interior!
Bare-limbed trees provide the perfect ghostly perch for jack-o'-lanterns, LED candle lanterns, and a flock of faux black crows. Make sure the tree limbs are sturdy enough to support the weight of the items you are hanging and take care not to over-decorate, which can lessen the overall effect. Funkins (Styrofoam pumpkins) are an especially good choice for this project, since they're lightweight and won't rot.

To make this clever wreath, fold 2 sheets of black paper accordion-style (about 1.5" inch folds), and then fold each in half lengthwise so you have two segments. Cut the top of the fold diagonally so you'll have a pointed end when it's unfolded. Then, cut three rectangles out of the paper, about half an inch apart, on each part of the segment. Once you have folded and cut both sheets of paper, tie them together tightly at their center folds. Take each loose edge of folded paper and using a glue stick, attach it to the end next to it. You'll see the paper will start to open up like a web!

A giant spider that dangles overhead requires very little legwork. To begin, use wire cutters to cut eight 26-inches pieces of wire, and then cover the length of one wire with a piece of double-sided tape. Unroll your streamers onto tape and cut them to the proper length; turn the wire over and repeat the process on the other side. Then, create a half-inch fringe on the sides of the streamers using fringe scissors—repeat the process on the other legs as well. Finally, open up a flutter ball and poke your top end of each leg into the ball, securing with tape. Suspend the ball from the ceiling using filament wire.
Everyone’s been waiting all month for one big night. Kids are hooting and hollering in the street to go door to door begging for treats. Are you prepared to put the scare into this weird and wild night? Remember to involve all the elements in your front yard décor. Smoke machines can make a misty atmosphere. Glowing lights can catch the eye of trick-or-treaters from blocks away. And don’t forget to play some scary music so people can get some spooks before they get their sweets.
With drilled (rather than carved) pumpkins, your life is bound to be a hole lot easier. To make these fun designs, simply cut a hole in the bottom of a large pumpkin, then scoop out the pulp and seeds as you normally would. Next, mark your desired pattern with an erasable wax pencil. Using a medium drill bit, punch out a dotted outline of your image. Leave approximately the same amount of space between each hole, and you're good to go!
Create this arm-bone frame to display our clip-art sea-life print or another suitably spooky work of art. To make your own, download an illustration of urchins and coral. Take the file to a copy center to have it printed full-size (24 by 36 inches). You can choose a print of your own in a similar size instead. Using spray adhesive, adhere the print to foam board. Since you will not need the shoulder blades, unscrew them from the arms. Determine placement of arm bones: Place them on foam board, so their elbows are at the corners and hands reach along the sides. Anchor one arm at a time to foam board: Using a tapestry needle threaded with monofilament, and starting on the back side, sew through the foam board, loop monofilament over a bone, then push the needle back through; knot. Repeat a few times in the same spot. Then repeat this stitching in several other spots along the arm.
