I have done a yard haunt for 4 years now and each year I buy new items to add to my collection. I find though I have collected a mass of skulls and skeletons. Not only as props but skulls on plates, bowls, cups, vintage cards, table cloths, figurines, candles, candle holders, jewelry----just about everything!

Does anyone else find they do this too with a certain item? :)

I tend to collect lots of skulls as well. I've also figured out I have lots (probably too much) spider items. I'm terrified of them but not all people are. It's hard to find a variety of items without paying a small fortune for them. But, I'm determined to buy and build unique items this year that none of our guests have seen. (I host a big party every year).

I am the same as you, halloweenie1!!! When I decided on my day of the dead theme this year, I realised that most of my decorations seem to be skulls or skeleton related somehow, which has worked out nicely :)

Hi Witch Hazel,

I understand--- I feel the same about my items as well! I find it's best to pick certain items you love and then embelish upon it at home.
Just a suggestion, have you ever checked Grandin Road's website?

Halloween Decorations, Outdoor Halloween Decor, Halloween Costumes - Grandin Road

I purchased a few things form them last year and I was very satisfied. Not cheap, but the selection of halloween items is very good.

Goretraits or other framed scary pictures, any decor that looks like it's made of rock (e.g., gargoyles) - like the ones that Michael's is selling now, some Lemax but I don't go too crazy with it.

I have lots of pumpkins too but what would Halloween be without them? I use a lot of jack o lanterns because they provide eerie lighting. My guests have commented on how cool it is to see so many around & it provides a really neat ambience (along with a lot of candles).
