There are so many different ways to decorate for Halloween.  Some people prefer orange and black while others like a more non-traditional combination of purple and green.  Some people like cute decorations, while others want their house to look like the set of a horror movie.  Personally, I am a skeletons-for-Halloween kind of girl; most of my decorations incorporate a boney theme.  If you are a fellow skeleton lover, you will love this idea!  Taryn from Formal Fringe whipped up these spooky skeleton hands using gloves and a Sharpie, creating easy creep factor for her holiday decor.   I think I might make a set of these to line the window sill in my front room to creep out trick-or-treaters!  [how to make spooky skeleton hands]
