Get ready for Halloween and decorate all your indoor and outdoor spaces for this freaky holiday! Today we are sharing some ideas for decorating your front and back yards, and I’m sure that everyone will find an idea or two that is useful.
But first of all, prepare the spaces. Clean up the trash and debris in your yard, remove old decorations if there are any. Pick a common theme and stick to it: a graveyard, zombies, aliens or ghosts, you can mix them up but not too much to keep it stylish. Use special lights and fog machines for a spooky effect. Secure your decorations: paper ghosts can blow around, pumpkins can fall off railings. Make sure all your decorations are on flat, stable surfaces or hung with sturdy cord, wire or fishing line from a strong source. Now let’s have a look at decorations themselves.
These are among the most popular decorations for Halloween, and that’s not surprising because making them yourself is easy and not expensive. Grab some chicken wire and give it a human-resembling look, then place in your yard. You can also paint them to glow in the dark to look scarier. Another idea is to add foam head and cover the figures with cheesecloth to look more real. Place some on your swings, porch and at the entrance, you won’t regret.
These guys are awesome for stylish and easy Halloween décor. Buy some at dollar stores and create your own skeleton scenes: skeletons playing cricket, sitting on chairs, going for a walk with skeleton dogs, skeletons hiding bodies and other scenes for fun. You can also make a graveyard scene with some skeleton parts placed into fall leaves, it will take just a couple of minutes.
This idea is among the coolest and the simplest to recreate. Take some plywood like old cabinet doors and turn them into simple tombstones easily and fast, there are tons of tutorials over the web. Write some funny names and epitaphs and place them in your yard. You can also add some scary figures and ghosts here, and zombies will be in place, too. Skeleton decorations are also suitable for graveyard theme.
Of course, there’s a plenty of other ideas you can try: witch circles, creepy creatures, zombie figures and even zombie dolls, Michael Myers figures, people-eating trees and other stuff like that, here everything is up to you, your décor theme and creativity. Look at the ideas we’ve found!
