When my son asked me to decorate the shelves in his room for Halloween, it gave me a fun challenge.  It couldn't be too spooky because ain't nobody like that.  But a 13 year old boy is certainly not going to like whimsical either.  I think I settled right in the middle with this Halloween Shelfie!

What is a Halloween Shelfie you say?  Well, it is a shelf or set of shelves decorated for Halloween   My son has a chalkboard wall in his room with black brackets and wooden shelves.  Nice and manly.  So I needed to keep his décor manly too.  And not too spooky.  And not little kid'ish.  It was a challenge but I was up for the task!

After placing purple Halloween lights around the shelves, I filled glass jars with plenty of Halloween curiosities- skulls and glow in the dark bats.

These glass jars are filled with the Halloween classics - spider rings and vampire teeth.  I thought the collection of them made for a mad scientist look.  I put brown shred in the bottom of the jars to fill them up.

Halloween shelf decor - creepy cloth, skeletons

I used a variety of skeletons and skulls.  That had just the right amount of spookiness with out being down right scary!  I also used creepy cloth.  That stuff works so awesome to add Halloween ambiance.

I used poster putty to hold the inflexible and super light weight skeletons in place.  Otherwise my son would wake up to a nightmare of a skeleton falling on him in the middle of the night.  

Halloween shelf decor - chalkboard wall

As I said above, my son has a chalkboard wall so it's the perfect place to add some chalk art.  I drew spiderwebs, bats and wrote a few messages.  My son learned this Halloween poem in grade school and he requested it on his wall.  It's the perfect accent and matches the skeletons and skulls perfectly!

This project was a win/win!   My son is thrilled to have his room decorated and I enjoyed the challenge of decorating in a different place than usual.  It's so easy and so fun to make a Halloween Shelfie for Halloween Home Decor!
