By topping off an old stack of books with what we hope is a replica of a skull, Instagram user kyrsmelo created a simple but very effective homage to the season — without a pumpkin in sight! We love the effect and can imagine using it in an entryway to give guests a fright or as an unusual centerpiece for a Halloween party. Want to try something similar at home? Buy a stack of vintage books ($20) and a skull ($16) and give it a go! Don't forget to tag your creation with #casasnap so we can admire your scary (good) handiwork!
