Halloween Yard Decorations
Gather the kids up and create a cemetery in the front yard. Tombstones can either be store bought or homemade. If making your own, add some fun, unique names. For those who have been on the Haunted Mansion in Disneyland, outside the ride, there are a variety of tombstones like M.T. Tomb, Theo Later, and Rustin Peece.
Have fun coming up with your own humorous names. A fog machine can be added to create a more eerie effect. Skeletons and mummies can also be added, along with some chilling music playing in the background.
Outdoor Halloween Decorations
Lawn inflatables can be lots of fun. Imagine a black cat, jack-o-lantern, or witches greeting guests as they come up to the front door. If preferring something for younger children, there are all-time beloved children’s favorites like Winnie the Pooh and Tigger.
Bushes and trees can be great for Halloween decorating. Spread fake spider webs over trees and bushes. Then, attach fake spiders and other creepy crawlers. Add some garlands of skeletons and pumpkins. If there is an electrical outlet nearby, don’t forget to add some strands of light.
A Halloween cardboard cut-out can be placed on the front door. Add some dangling spiders and bats that the kids must make their way through to get to the front door. Having a life-sized creature such as a ghoul or a monster propped by the front door can add to the eerie fun of the night.
Halloween Decorating Ideas
Some people like to decorate for Halloween, but, prefer not to do anything so frightening. Instead of spooky decorations, get some bales of hay, large pumpkins, and place a friendly looking scarecrow into the ground. Don’t forget to add a nice welcome sign.
