Happy Saturday, Remodelaholics! Today we have a really fun, cheap, and easy (a DIYers favorite three words, right?) Halloween decor idea for you. I saw some clever shelf-sitting gold skeletons in a local store here but the sticker price was a little steep for me for Halloween decorating, so I hit up the dollar store and the craft supply section at Walmart and made my own!
How to Make Gold Skeletons to Sit on a Mantel or Shelf
Pretty please watch the video to see the process of making the gold skeletons, including some silly real-life stuff from us, ha! and give the video a thumbs up. Be sure to subscribe to our channel, too! New videos every week, and we have some really exciting things to show you coming up!
It was a fun project and I’m so thrilled with how they turned out! I’ve always thought the “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” statues were just kind of a silly fun thing to add character to a room, but for Halloween and in GOLD, I seriously love these guys. They’re quirky and cute and it was a fun dollar store hack to make some uniquely spooky Halloween decor for my mantel. Please share the video with your friends and pin this post to save it for later!
These gold skeletons are outside the traditional orange and black, but they also match nicely with the plywood pennant banner and the other elements that we kept from our neutral fall mantel — and if you’re looking for more easy Halloween decor , check out this post for high-impact but cheap decorating ideas!

Prefer silver over gold? Our reader Heather took our golden skeletons idea and ran with it:
Heather painted the skeletons silver then used black acrylic to create this metallic look. So cool! Thanks for sharing, Heather!
