Smell the sweet scent of pumpkin spiced latte in the air? See the leaves turning to a beautiful shade of golden brown? Well, this can only mean one thing: Halloween season is officially here! That means Hocus Pocus will be on television, it is time to choose a scary costume and to get with the season, and that you’ll have to start decorating your home!
Sure, you still have a full month to prepare, which may be too long or too short depending on what you have planned for the season; either way, this post is going to help get you started. You’re probably already scouring through stores for decorations to help “spookify” your home. Aside from the typical witches and ghouls, how about considering these human skull–shaped logs?
Skull-Shaped Logs Are a Must-Have This Halloween
Are these skull-shaped logs a Halloween dream come true or nightmare?
If you happen to have an affinity for the macabre, then they could be a dream come true. You might have guessed that there’s really no need for any alarm. The skulls are actually made of mixed ceramic materials and they’ll make the perfect additions for fire pits and gas fireplaces.
One of the top manufacturers of this product is Myriad. The company makes steel-reinforced refractory ceramic logs that are fireproof so they don’t crumble when thrown into the fire. This means you can snuggle up with your better half while watching the embers dance through the hollow eye sockets and cavernous jaws.
The logs have the exact measurements of a real human skull, 8 to 9 inches long and 6.5 to 7.5 inches wide, certainly adding to the creepy factor. They’re also hand-painted to look more realistic after burned a bit.

The skull-shaped logs come in three different colors: white, black, and brown. You’ll have to purchase the lower jaw separately, though; manufacturers most likely did this on purpose since it could break during shipping.
So if you happen to have $70 to spend, why don’t you go ahead and purchase these logs that even Edgar Allan Poe would have loved to use for his fireplace. Macabre references aside, refractory logs can last for so many years, so you’re really getting your money’s worth with them.
