Create a Spooky Yard for Halloween

Create a Spooky Yard for Halloween

Halloween can be one of the most child-like and fun holidays of the year.  From the adorable and excited children in their costumes to costume parties for adults, Halloween is really a time to let out the kid in all of us and have a good time.  Whether just entertaining the Trick-or-Treaters or having a party, creating a spooky looking yard and exterior for your home can really add to the atmosphere of the event

 

Pumpkins And Jack-O'-Lanterns - Autumn is a great time of year to find lots of decorations that come from nature.  Naturally when we think of Halloween we think of Jack-o'-Lanterns, and having plenty of these on your front step and in your yard will give it a great eerie effect.  Also, rather than just cutting out the traditional faces try tracing out other images such as witches and cats.  Painting pumpkins is also a great idea, and be sure to include many of different sizes.  Remember to use battery operated tea lights or flashlights rather than candles in order to prevent accidents.

Scary Signs & Window Decorations - Creating scary signs or gravestones is a really inexpensive and creative way to make your front yard look scary.  Use old pieces of wood to create signs that welcome your guests to your house of horrors or to design old-looking grave markers.  Also don't forget to decorate your front windows to match the look.  Hang dark colored drapes, suspend fake cobwebs, and add a few fake spiders to complete the look.  Lights can also add a nice spooky effect, but avoid candles for safety reasons.

 

Don't Forget Your Trees! - A great place to add scary Halloween décor to your front yard is in your trees.  Hang fake bats or a ghost, string some lights, or set a witch on one of the branches.

 

These are just a few of the fun, scary, and inexpensive ways in which you can make your property the spookiest on the block
