It won't be long before you head to your attic, crawlspace, or basement to retrieve your holiday decorations, bringing Rudolph the Red-Nosed reindeer, Frosty, and other Christmas characters into your living room. But if you're looking to add a little horror decor to your tree this year, then you might be interested in The Return of the Living Dead ornament that pays tribute to the brain-hungry Tarman.

From Freddy in Space's John Squires and Homemade Horror‘s Gabe LaPeer, The Return of the Living Dead Christmas ornament depicts the iconic Tarman sleeping the years away in a sealed drum of Trioxin. Sculpted and painted by hand and available for $20.00 (with a base attachment available for $5), the 3.75-inch tall ornament will only be available to purchase until 10:00am EST tomorrow:

"The 2nd annual Freddy In Space/Homemade Horror Christmas ornament was hand-sculpted by Gabe LaPeer, resin-cast and painted in acrylics. It stands 3 3/4" tall without the base, and the canister window is made out of thick Lexan. The bronze ornament hook can easily be removed to convert it into a year-round display piece - dripping tar display base sold separately. These are made-to-order, and will begin shipping out in early December, in plenty of time for Christmas!"
