30 HILARIOUS “Elf on the Shelf” Ideas for your Halloween skeleton

Have you ever wanted to put a serious HILARIOUS twist in your halloween decorations or traditions? THIS IS FOR YOU! For the past three or four years, I have been wanting to buy this AWESOME pose-n-stay life size skeleton for Halloween. (This Halloween skeleton can be put into a pose and it will stay that way.) Well, I saw one of them on sale and I just couldn’t help myself. Not only is he a great halloween decoration, he is now a permanent Halloween fixture in our home. He’s like a member of the family. We named him Mr. Bonez.

30 Hilarious "elf on the shelf" IDEAS you can start with your Halloween Skeleton. Great addition to your Halloween decoration!

So, I wanted to have a little bit of fun with our new skeleton and the kids, so we decided to do our own version of Elf on the Shelf (If you are wanting a jump start for Christmas here is a traditional “Elf on the Shelf“). Instead of elf on the shelf with a little elf doll,  we began our own “Mr. Bonez on the Bench” with our Halloween Skeleton.

If you’re not familiar with the Elf on the Shelf, basically, it’s a stuffed elf doll that only comes out at night. During the day he sits on the shelf and watches the kids to make sure they’re being good. Sometimes the elf gets into mischief or leaves surprises for the kids when they wake up in the morning. The kids LOVE it and parenting usually do to (Here are some fun ideas for Elf on the Shelf).


Since it’s still fairly nice weather outside, we took our skeleton a step further. I took Mr. Bonez the skeleton outside and put together a few ideas of how you can start your own Mr. Bonez on the Bench.

Well, enjoy!

Another option for your skeleton

If you don’t want to spend quite that much money on a life-size skeletonlife-size skeleton, you can also buy a smaller version by clicking here, a 19″ pose-n-stay skeleton that is just as much fun, just a little bit smaller. We have one of those at our house too.
