Let this be the year that your Halloween decor stands out for good reasons. After all, spiderwebs and tombstones might be classics, but they won’t earn the ooh’s and aah’s you deserve. Spice up your yard this Halloween with these DIY decorations and wow your neighbors, guests and trick or treaters with your creativity!
Tired of boring faces on your Jack-o-Lanterns? Make a pumpkin tableau instead! From the simple (2-3 pumpkins) to full sized modern art, pumpkins come in all sizes and shapes to fit your artistic vision. Go superhero or gruesome in these eye catching displays and be the talk of the neighborhood! If you want to go really outrageous, pineapple-o-lanterns are all the rage this year!
Use all your space
Garage doors are prime space for spooky scenes. Vinyl cutouts are easy to apply, reusable, and create a striking image in the low light. Adding a few pumpkins or branches will complete the look and delight all goblins who come up your driveway!
Stuffed scarecrows on a swing are nice, but a standing greeter will make a bold statement at your entry. A training dummy in a hooded robe and mask makes a great greeter, but with a little more effort, making one is easy with these step by step directions.
Candy stuffed decoration
Not sure what to do about the tree in your yard? Try a pinata! Hang or hide one among the branches to give your yard an extra-festive look, above the ground. The best part is that they double as a fun party activity afterwards! Keep some small jack-o-lanterns empty for easy accent decorations.
Nothing says “Welcome to My Home” like a wreath. With literally hundreds of different kinds and styles, as well as dozens of tutorials, you can express the exact level of ominous spookiness or the classy autumn look you want. Toss out that plastic door cover and add some cheesecloth for wafting accent, and turn your door into the haunted mansion entrance you’ve always wanted!
