Halloween will be here before we know it, and if you’re already planning your indoor decor and putting up your Halloween inflatables, you’re going to want to make sure your fire pit is ready to go for the spookiest night of the year, too.

If you feel your collection of Halloween decorations isn’t quite scary enough, we’ve found the perfect product for you. Three words: human skull logs!

Yup. You can buy decorative human skull logs to throw into your fireplace or fire pit, and they’ll seriously increase the overall creepiness factor of your Halloween gathering. Check them out:


Sold at $49.95 a pop, these realistic-looking skull decorations don’t come cheap, but the look on your friends’ faces when you lead them into your backyard for your Halloween party might be worth the price.

According to the Amazon product description, the skulls are made with fireproof materials and are also weather-resistant. They are hand-painted and pretty much life-size; they clock in at 8-9 inches in length and 6.5-7.5 inches in width, with a weight of 10 pounds.

The skulls also come in a number of styles, colors and materials: one version is demonic, with horns, and made from cement, composite materials and fireproof paint. You can get human-looking ceramic skulls in realistic-looking black, brown, white and gray tones. Or, choose green, orange and yellow pottery versions. They also come with a limited lifetime warranty, so you can enjoy them for years to come.

If you don’t have a fireplace or fire pit, just scatter them throughout your yard or basement to set a super-spooky vibe. Place a candle inside so firelight glows through them.

Overall, Amazon customers seem pleased with the product, with 74% giving it a five-star rating. “Had great fun with this realistic ‘skull.’ Timely delivery for a backyard party appreciated,” read one review.

“These things are awesome. They look great engulfed in flames. I wish I had ordered more,” wrote another.
