Create spooky Halloween table top decor with skeletons from the Dollar Tree! It’s fun and easy to design a festive table to entertain friends and family on a budget.
I’m once again joining my table stylist friends for a Halloween themed tablescape blog hop. Many thanks to my friend Rita from Panoply for graciously hosting this event. If you’re stopping by after a visit with Ann from Corner of Plaid and Paisley, welcome! Ann has such a talent for mixing patterns…I’m sure you loved her table setting. Be sure to visit all of the creative bloggers at the end of this post for lots of Halloween ideas!
Halloween Table Top Decor
My inspiration for this table came from this guy who’s been a part of my Halloween decor for several years. He’s hung from the front door, sat in a chair on the porch, and participated in Trunk or Treat at my daughter’s school. I knew he’d make a great centerpiece for a skeleton themed table!
I found the paper skull plates at Dollar Tree. I must admit that I’ve never used paper plates on a tablescape before, but these were just perfect for my theme. I dressed them up by placing them atop a black dinner plate and a silver charger.
I also found the creepy skeleton hands at Dollar Tree. Each place setting has one reaching toward the plate!
The mini skeletons in each black water glass are another fabulous Dollar Tree find!
The frosted mirror skeleton frame is a Halloween craft I made two years ago. It was right at home on this table!
I used black tulle as a tablecloth, and votive candles gave the table an eerie glow.
I hope you have a frightfully good Halloween!
