October: Create a Bone-Chilling Halloween Entry
What better way to welcome your neighborhood's resident witches, ghouls, and goblins to your home than by tricking out your front door. For this spooky setup, we turned bones (fake, of course) into a knocker, a replica skull into a light fixture, and a plain coir rectangle into a deadly clever doormat. To do it yourself, you'll need your own faux bones. But forget plastic; instead, look to anatomical-model companies for lifelike casts made from polyurethane or resin. Then just arm yourself with a drill/driver, some screws, and a can of black spray paint—and prepare to see some very surprised faces approach your walkway on Halloween.
