Skeletons in the Bathroom and Out of the Closet
Skull Shower Curtain
Decorate a Bathroom with Skulls and Skeletons
The Skeletons have come out of the closet and headed off to the bathroom. There they have decided to remain in residence, at least until after Halloween if not longer.
Decorating a bathroom at Halloween or any other time with skulls and skeletons is a way of being a little bit scary at Halloween without being too over the top scary like some Halloween decorations.
Depending on the decorating style, like gothic you can even make skeletons and skulls chic and trendy instead of just scary or trendy (pirates).
Who knows? You might even like the Gothic skeleton décor that you'll keep a Skull or Skeleton Bathroom for long past Halloween.

Skeletons and Skulls are Scary, Spooky & Stylish
Skeletons are a great teaching tool for teaching anatomy at Halloween. Calacas and calavera (skeletons and skulls) are a common decorating theme for Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.
As Halloween decorations the skeletons and skulls are frequently scary, but for Dia de los Muertos they are a large part of the culture. Skulls and skeletons can be used as a spooky theme for decorating cakes and cupcakes.
Skeletons and skulls can also be used as scary, spooky and stylish bathroom decorations depending on the desired décor. Skulls and voodoo bones will give spooky look, DENY Skulls a more updated and trendy, Sugar Skulls a cultural Day of the Dead look and pirates a swashbuckling, whimsical look (a great theme for Pirates of the Caribbean fans).
Add a few skulls and skeletons to your bathroom as shower curtains, toilet paper holder or toilet bowl cleaner to get a bit of a spooky effect to the bathroom.
Create a Gothic themed bathroom using decorating products like Abstract Skull Decals, Flocked Skulls Wallpaper, Ghoulish Glamour Skull Toothpicks or Skull footed bowls help to create a stylish skeleton and skull bathroom look.

Decorate the Bathroom in Skulls and Bones
Decorating with skulls and bones is probably one of the best ways to create a scary Halloween bathroom bone theme.
Include specially designed skull bathroom products like the toilet paper holder or toilet bowl cleaner to bring more skeletons into the bathroom.
Use other skeleton products like a Skull Stash Box to hold cotton balls or cotton swabs and the Skull Coffee Mug as a bathroom water glass. The skull bowl to the right can be used as a toothbrush holder on the sink or turned into a paper cup dispenser.
Put in a Skull Area Runner Rug on the floor. Accent the skulls and bones shower curtain, with black or bone colored shower curtain rings and towels.
If you want to make the bathroom decorations extra scary for Halloween, add a Skeleton Wall Decal, scatter some Halloween skeleton bones and set out a skeleton with lantern. Just be sure to remember that that skeletons are hiding in the bathroom, so you don't get yourself spooked.
