We find we’re often toggling a fine line when it comes to Halloween decorations. Yes, we want our home to be scary. But we also want it to be cool-looking. (Let the neighbors go hog wild with their “festive” amputation vignettes.)
Steel-enforced and totally fireproof, these faux skulls can be tossed into your fireplace or outdoor fire pit. And with their convincing similarities to a real human skull—and hollowed-out eye sockets and jaws for the flames to dance in—they’re both inventive and spectacularly spooky.
At $70 a pop, they’re not exactly a steal, but they will last you for years and get even more patinaed and convincing as they age.
Now set the scene: The table is lined with creepy candles, guests are dressed in their All Hallows’ Eve finery and a pile of skulls sits smoldering on the fire. Mwahaha. It’s official: Best Halloween party ever.
