Shadow figures are the perfect all-purpose decoration

What we love about these Halloween shadow figures is all the different ways you can use them. You can:

  • Put them in a window to create a scary silhouette trick-or-treaters will be able to see from outside.
  • Line them up on a table to make a chill-inducing centerpiece (surrounded by candy, of course) for a Halloween bash or scary dinner party.
  • Place them on a shelf, console or media center for Halloween decor that’s minimalist enough to blend in with any home decor style.
  • Set them up outside with a bright light, and display their shadows  larger than life — against the side of your house. Turning these small shadow figures into a towering display will make your yard the envy of the neighborhood this Halloween.

In other words, these little shadow figures have so many creative possibilities (there are probably more we haven’t even come up with yet). We already know they’re going to be the must-have decoration this season, so if you want to get your hands on some, you might want to move quickly.
