Super Creative Skeleton Displays for Halloween! (repost)

I was going to post a "Wordless" post today because I've had an insanely busy day, but then I remembered that I'd completely forgotten about collecting photos from readers' skeleton scene decorations for Halloween this year. 

I meant to send out a request early this month! I absolutely LOVE seeing skeleton scenes in peoples' yards this time of year! It literally brings me so much joy to see the creativity. Last year, I put together a whole post of skeleton photos that readers submitted. So, I'm just going to repost that here rather than a "wordless" post. At least it's more fun :)

Here is a new skeleton picture from a few days ago. Eli had a friend spend the night and I offered to make pancakes and turkey bacon for them for breakfast. Before the boys came in to eat, I sat the skeleton at the table.

So, below is the post from Halloween 2021...

This is quite possibly my most favorite post ever. As you may know from reading my blog, I absolutely LOVE skeleton displays. They actually make me look forward to going for walks or runs in October because they are so fun to see! (Sadly, I do not have skeletons to display, but after this post, I really want to buy some.)

I asked on Facebook for followers to send pictures of skeleton displays in their neighborhoods so I could compile them in a blog post. And here it is! If you have skeleton photos to share, please email them to me! I'll add them to this post up until Halloween, and then I'll do another post next year. Just send them to katie (at) runsforcookies (dot) com. (Don't worry about resizing or blurring addresses or anything--I'll do that before posting.)

You all are so creative... I love it!


Thank you so much to everyone who shared these--this totally made my day!


  1. These are fabulous! We have some great ones in my neighborhood, but I tend to go out after dark. I need to head out in the daytime to capture them.

  2. These are so fun! I love the Avengers scene! And the Zoom conference call, omg hilarious! Such creativity!

  3. Who knew there are cat,dog and dinosaur skeletons out there? So funny. I loved them.

  4. There is a house in our neighborhood that has a skeleton hanging up year-round. They change out the clothes every few weeks. It was such a fixture in the neighborhood (and the housing market was so crazy here) that when the house was sold, it was written into the contract of the house that the new owner needed to maintain the skeleton for at least 1 year!

  5. People are so clever!!! Loved all the displays. What would you do with your skeletons if you do buy some?

  6. Ohmygoodness, these are fabulous! I find the Bob Ross happy little trees and Zoom meeting ones especially hilarious!😹

  7. FYI, there was a skeleton shortage this year. You could hardly find any. I have a total of 11 including the animals…I received an inheritance last year and splurged. It was worth it though…I have a blast and I know my dad is looking down getting a kick out of them.


I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
