One of the greatest things about the fall season is Halloween! Along with the spooky witches and wizards trick-or-treating around the neighborhood comes the spooky yard décor that pulls everyone into the festive mood. Here are just a few unique Halloween yard décor ideas to inspire your own seasonal displays.
Have you ever considered making a mummy family to give everyone a little fright! BHG used some simple pieces of wood, muslin, duct tape and spray paint to easily create a great looking mummy figure. Take the time to build a couple of mummies, and a few smaller ones, and you can have a crew of spooky décor items.
Pumpkins come in all shapes and sizes, but have you ever considered using those pumpkins is a couple of fun and unique ways – paint a row of pumpkins green with some polka dots and display like a big caterpillar, instead of carving a jack-o-lantern with a little bit of ribbon and hot glue you can create some beautiful word art by glue button to the front of the pumpkin to spell seasonal words like ‘BOO’ or ‘EEK’. If you have the time and want to make an real impression, use straw to create bodies for a pumpkin family!
Look at this lovely display of Halloween luminaries! Traditional bag luminaries or these spray painted mason jar luminaries look great. Not only will this project bring some festive cheer to your yard, when they are lit up at night they can light the way for all of those fun little trick-or-treaters right to your door.
Finally, ghosts are always a great way to up the ‘spook’ factor in your Halloween yard. These spooky additions are easy to make with various sizes of Styrofoam balls and cheesecloth treated with fabric stiffener. You can hand these ghoulish ghosts from trees, porch rails, etc.
