Halloween yard decor ideas

Get ready for Halloween and decorate all your indoor and outdoor spaces for this crazy holiday! Today we are sharing some ideas for decorating your front and back yards and I’m sure everyone will find an idea or two that will come in handy.

But first prepare the rooms. Clean up the trash and debris in your garden and remove any old decorations. 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 them stylish. Use special lights and smoke machines for a spooky effect. Secure your decorations: paper ghosts can blow around, pumpkins can fall off railings. Make sure all of your decorations are on flat, stable surfaces or are suspended from a strong source with sturdy twine, wire, or fishing line. Now let’s look at the decorations themselves.


These decorations are some of the most popular decorations for Halloween, and that’s not surprising since it’s easy and inexpensive to make yourself. Take a chicken wire and look at it humanely. Then put it in your garden. You can also paint them to glow in the dark and look more frightening. Another idea is to add a foam head and cover the figures with cheesecloth to look more real. Put something on your swings, porch and entryway, you won’t regret it.


These guys are fantastic for stylish and simple Halloween decor. Buy some at dollar stores and create your own skeleton scenes: skeletons playing cricket, sitting on chairs, skeleton dogs running, skeletons hiding bodies, and other scenes for fun. You can also create a graveyard scene with some skeleton parts among the fall leaves. This only takes a few minutes.
