Halloween Skeleton Fireplace

Make no bones about it, skeletons are the backbone of Halloween decorating. A Halloween skeleton fireplace with simulated human, dog and cat, bat and rat, bird and reptile, or even dragon and unicorn skeletons can send tingles up  your spine. In addition to decorating the fireplace, skeletons can sit on chairs or couches and hide in closets. They can prance across shelves or lounge by a cauldron full of Halloween candy.

From a pile of human-like bones replacing the logs in your fireplace, to skeletal creatures haunting the mantel, hearth, and inside a firebox, any Halloween skeleton fireplace is an attention grabber!

Bat, Rat, and Cat Halloween Skeleton Fireplace

Flying bats, scary rats, and hissing black cats are all part of Halloween. The skeleton versions of these animals up the creepy factor significantly!

Bats in and around your fireplace are spooky enough. But long dead skeletal bats can make your skin crawl. You can get them in a variety of sizes. Furthermore, you can hang them head up or feet up.

Crazy Bonez bat skeletons even have feet that allow you to hang the bats on your mantel. The bats’ toes are bent backwards. This lets them hang from any ledge such as a mantel or shelf. They naturally pose like sleeping bats.

Any time of year, not just at Halloween, the sight of rats or mice gives most folks a startle. Place them scampering across the mantel, climbing up the fireplace, or lounging by the heat of the fireplace. Skeleton rats and skeleton mice are perfect for posing by a Halloween hearth.
