Halloween Cheese and Meat Platter



Halloween Party Pallet Wood and Skeleton Cheese and Meat Tray

Welcome back.  I thought I was all finished with Halloween projects after my skull poster, pallet wood pumpkin holder and  skull cloche.  It was not to be…I was asked to help with food for my daughter-in-law’s Halloween themed baby shower.

This is an easy and fun project that makes a big impact!  Why?  Because it’s big!

As far as pallets go, this one is small , but it still measures 26″ x 36″. Much bigger than your normal meat and cheese platter.

Remove all the pallet wood from one side and the middle crossbar.

On the bottom, fill in any gaps with more pallet wood and add more pallet wood to finish the sides.

I used screws to attach all my wood so I could take it apart easily.

Box is all finished. Now is the time to start decorating.  I bought a bag of bones from Walmart for $10.

Drill holes and wire together the leg bones and feet (at least I think they’re leg bones).

Drill another hole  in the hands and the side of the pallet box and wire into place.

More shopping.  This time to the dollar store for a headstone, 2 black bowls, 2 pots and a serving tray.  Total cost $6.

The moss was from my backyard.  I dug it up a couple days early in case any critters need to make an escape.

Time to load up for the party.  Blood and guts fill the bowls  (salsa and guacamole), meat and cheese innards, worms coming up from the ground and chips and crackers finish off the platter.
