Thrilling And Spooky Ideas For Halloween Outside Decorations
Want to give visitors to your home the shivers? Put up some creepy looking Halloween outside decorations to ensure that your guests will be covered in delightful goose bumps this Halloween. Here are some delightfully fiendish and sensationally spooky ideas for Halloween outside decorations to help you in your decorating task.
Ideas for Halloween Outside Decorations
Creepy Talking Tree Decorations
If you have any trees in your front yard or back yard, you can use them to accentuate the Halloween theme by decorating them and changing them into talking Halloween trees, which are sure to thrill your guests with horror. You can create these ‘talking trees’ by using talking tree prop decorations that actually talk and feature scary eyes (without pupils) that can light up.
These awesome talking tree Halloween prop decorations are made of vinyl (made to resemble bark in color and texture) so they are safe to use outdoors and they also come with batteries. You can purchase these Halloween outside decorations at online stores like Amazon and Spirit Halloween. You can also hang ornaments like bat ornaments on the branches of the ‘talking trees’ to enhance the spine-tingling effect of the trees.
Scary Scarecrow Decorations
Creepy looking scarecrow decorations are another great idea for Halloween outside decorations. This is especially easy if you already have a scarecrow at your place. Just imagine having a vegetable garden filled with delightful growing pumpkins and overshadowed by a hideous looking scarecrow, all of which combine to create the perfect illusion of a witch’s garden. You can find pumpkin seeds online at stores like Amazon and you can also buy creepy looking Halloween themed scarecrows at stores like Walmart.
If you want to make or modify your own spooky looking scarecrow, you can do so by making an ordinary scarecrow body (filled with straw) and using a carved Jack O’ Lantern for its head. Next you can either sew or purchase a long black robe and slip this over the straw body and arms. With the help of wires secure a long handled broomstick to one of the arms of your scarecrow. You can now attach your scarecrow to an upright pole or post and voila you have a perfectly scary looking Halloween outside decoration.
Tombstone Yard Decorations
Using plastic or cardboard tombstones to decorate your garden or front yard is another great idea for Halloween outside decorations. You can purchase creepy looking grey colored tombstones online from stores like Amazon and Buy.com. If you want to save money, you can always make your own cardboard versions with the help of a bit of paint. To make a tombstone decoration, simply draw and cut out large and identical tombstone shapes (must be of the same size) from several pieces of thick cardboard.
Paste these pieces one on top of the other till you have a cardboard tombstone that is nice and solid looking. Paint the tombstone all over in grey and then using black paint write out ‘R.I.P” at the top and presto you’ve got an eerie looking tombstone decoration. Make as many of these as you need and arrange the tombstones in your yard with some of the tombstones half embedded in the earth and some fallen over or standing crookedly.
You can also put up a graveyard arch that looks like it’s straight out of a horror movie to complete this awesome Halloween outside decoration project. You can make your own using a bit of wire and cardboard or if you find that difficult, you can purchase awesome decorative graveyard arches or entrances online.
Jack O’ Lantern Decorations
You can never go wrong when using Jack O’ Lanterns as Halloween outside decorations. These delightful decorations have been associated with the festival of Halloween for ages so they are truly authentic Halloween decorations. They also add a touch of brilliant color to the otherwise dark color scheme that is associated with Halloween. These adorable pumpkins are also age appropriate decorations and are sure to be a hit with the kids.
You can also use real carved pumpkins to make Jack O’ Lantern decorations. To make a Jack O’ Lantern out of a pumpkin all you need to do is take a large pumpkin and clean it out. Then using a knife, carve out two large triangular shapes for eyes and a big mouth with triangular teeth and your Jack O’ Lantern is ready! You can place lighted candles inside the pumpkin but be very careful as they can lead to fire hazards.
Alternatively, you can use artificial lighting like led lights to light up your Jack O’ Lanterns. Arrange a number of these decorative pumpkins around your garden or porch, and hang a couple from the porch ceiling to cast a lovely dull orange light over the entire site. By using lighted Jack O’ Lanterns you’ll be highlighting all your other Halloween outside decorations in a most appropriate and traditional way.
You can also purchase paper Jack O’ Lanterns and ornaments that can be hung from the porch ceiling and from the branches of trees. You can find a wide variety of these colorful Halloween outside decorations like wrought iron hanging ornaments to LED lighted Jack O’ Lanterns at online stores like Amazon and eBay.
Fake Spider and Spider Web Decorations
Fake spiders and spider webs are some of the best Halloween outside decorations out there as they can always be counted upon to create a spine-chilling atmosphere. You can decorate your porch and the trees in your yard or garden using fake spider webs and plastic spider ornaments, which you can purchase at stores like Amazon, Spirit Halloween and eBay.
Drape the spider webs artistically over the roof of your porch, over the windows and front door (should not impede the movement of people) and over the trees in your yard or garden and then tape a few fake spiders all over the porch walls and tree trunks for eerie looking spider-strewn decor. You can also hang inflated spiders from the ceiling of your porch.
You can purchase these at stores like Spirit Halloween and Walmart. Fake Spiders and spider webs can also be used to add more decorative appeal to other Halloween outside decorations. For instance, they can be draped over the tombstones and graveyard arches mentioned above to create an interesting and delightfully ghastly effect.Thrilling And Spooky Ideas For Halloween Outside Decorations,
