Save money and make your own trendy coffin-shaped skeleton charcuterie board that’s perfect for Halloween entertaining.
Here’s a budget-friendly Halloween craft idea that’s to die for! 💀
Consider turning an ordinary wood cutting board into a fun skeleton charcuterie board with just paint and dollar-store skeleton pieces. The steps include first reshaping and staining the cutting board to look like a coffin. Then, paint and attach the skeleton pieces.
What a perfect Halloween platter to use for a party. You can build a delicious charcuterie board with cheese and crackers, or serve up some scary sweet treats!
The results are scary GOOD, and look so similar to this spendy Pottery Barn tray!
Pottery Barn always has some of the cutest and most stylish seasonal decor including Halloween. Most of the items are pretty spendy though. For instance, this tray is $99.
As soon as I saw the photo above, I was inspired to come up with my own less expensive DIY version for my home this year. My supplies were under $25 since I am repurposing an old cutting board from Ikea.

Extra tips for making this fun Halloween cheese board:
- Before buying a wood board look around the house and see if you have one on hand to repurpose like I did. Consider visiting a local thrift store to check for inexpensive options.
- Don’t feel like cutting and staining wood? I spotted some wood coffin serving tray options on Etsy.com that could work instead! Or, Target just released a coffin-shaped serving tray that might work, too!
- The most challenging part of this project was getting the skeleton hands to stick. I used masking tape to stabilize from the outside while it dried, and that was helpful.
This Halloween platter may be one of my favorite DIY projects yet!
The stain is honestly so pretty and the whole thing gives a higher-end vibe. What a unique piece. I can’t wait to use this for a Halloween party! I wasn’t sure how my idea would turn out at times, but am excited and proud of this.
If you make one for yourself let us know!
