NECROMANCER'S CIRCLE OF BONES
Here's a really
sinister looking Halloween decoration that was inspired by
the "Necromancing the Stone" episode from the tv
show "Charmed". In this episode, an evil Necromancer
is resurrected by
his assistant within a pentagram shaped magic circle made up from
skulls and bones.
This sinister display is a really great Halloween decoration,
particularly if you place a costumed person or prop
the center of the circle and its a very impressive visage.
You can dress-up in a variety of costumes such as a grim
sorceress, wizard, or even a ghostly apparition and you'll
put a real scare into your Halloween visitors. If you have
the floor space, you can put your Halloween tree inside of
items needed to create this chilling Halloween display are five "Budget Life-Size 2-Piece Skulls (1st Quality)"
and ten "Femur's", both of which can be bought
Skeleton Store. These are what you need to make a
circle large enough for a person or a full size
Halloween prop figure to stand in and measures about five
If you want and even larger Circle of Bones, use three femur's instead of two in between each skull.
This will make a circle that measures more than seven across.
We positioned the skulls to face
inside the circle, except for the one in front, so that our visitors could see the
skulls clearly. If you want the skulls to look like
they did in the episode of "Charmed", you will
remove the lower jaw of each skull by removing the small screws
and springs that hold the lower jaw to the skull.
important to remember that
these skulls and bones are white in color because
they are made for the medical industry
and are not meant to look old and creepy. To give them
that "fresh from the grave" look, they should be
"distressed" using our instructions in our "Distressing
Positioning the skulls and femurs into the
shape of a pentagram is pretty simple,
just place a skull on the
floor or ground, then
place either two or three femurs, depending on the
size circle you are making, on either side of it in a straight
line, and so on until a pentagon shaped circle.
Glowing Eye Sockets
an extra spooky touch you can make the eye sockets of the
skulls glow in the
dark by painting
them with fluorescent paint. This will make them glow eerily
under black light enhancing there overall effect.
Either red or green colored fluorescent paint works
well for this and look very creepy. Be sure to position the
black light unit so that its UV light is directed at the
circle, but cannot be seen by onlookers.
