Happy Halloween 2021! Decorations at the New House + Stylish Black Skeleton Torso DIY

,Happy Halloween! Yes I am Waaay late this year, but here it is All Hallow’s Eve and I finally have a minute to get this post up 🙂 Things are still in progress at the new house and with the state of things we are not entertaining this year so our Halloween decor is a bit simpler than in years past but I LOVE HALLOWEEN, so even if it’s just for the 2 of us I had to do it. If you’ve been following my blog for awhile you’ll recognize many of the same decorations from our last 2 houses just used in new ways. The one new thing I added this year is the pair of black skeleton torsos with golden hearts (DIY below) inspired by similar pieces spied on Tik Tok. But first, this year’s house decor!

The Front Courtyard Entry.

Lots of mums and pumpkins! Mostly from Trader Joe’s and Home Depot. The dogs we’ve had for a few years now (a post-Halloween sale find). I put strings of orange lights in the rib cages. The best part is I can easily transition to Fall by taking away the dogs, black fabric and skeletons.

And lastly, the Stylish Black Skeleton DIY

These were very easy. I bought 2 very cheap plastic skeletons, removed the limbs (I painted the arms black and used them on the mantle, the unpainted legs are tucked among the plants lining the driveway with other assorted old skeleton parts), spray painted them black using a gloss plastic spray paint (Home Depot). I bought 2 plastic anatomical hearts on Amazon and spray painted them shiny gold. These hearts I hot glued inside the rib cages. I then added a twist of wire on the back and hung them on the doors on removable sticky hooks.

Until next year! Planning to go really big 🙂 Please follow this blog for more decorating inspiration!
