Trick or treat!

I don’t know about y’all but I am seeing charcuterie boards all over the place! They really are on trend. And I’m starting to see themed ones popping up too. With it being spooky season, I’m seeing Halloween charcuterie boards all over the social media lands and magazines. So, in true Mrs Happy Homemaker fashion – I had to create one too!

Skeleton Halloween Charcuterie Board

Keeping it budget friendly here – most of the decorations that you see here in this charcuterie board are from The Dollar Store, including the skeleton and the ‘chain’ that lines this board.

How did you assemble this Spook-tacular Charcuterie Board?

First, we layed the skeleton down the center of our board. Then we placed the skeleton hands on the board. Next, we strung the plastic chain around the board. Remember, all of these items were purchased at The Dollar Store!

From the string cheese, we made little brooms! I cut it in half and then halfway pulled the string cheese apart to create the broom look.

After the decorations were placed (except for the mini pumpkins), we began placing the other ingredients around those items. There really is no right or wrong way to do this! You can refer to my photos for some ideas of placement.

We also stuck the mini pumpkins on the board while we were assembling the food on it.

I used my homemade banana pepper mustard on this board to dip the pretzel rods in, but you can use any kind of mustard OR dip that you want. Get creative, use what you have!
