The traditional theme of the holiday we now call Halloween focused on using humor and ridicule to confront the power of death. Nowadays, even though the essence of the holiday lost a few of the original elements, its humorous side was preserved. Every year people decorate their front yards and bring this holiday back to life. Below you can find a few inspiring suggestions. To make things festive, we thought 13 would be a good number.
Turn your front yard into a graveyard. You can display a few tombstones, crosses, maybe even a skeleton trying to dig its way out of the ground. And to make the whole display even scarier, the nice guy coming your way with a lamp in his hand can turn out to be something else.
Replace all your light bulbs with red ones for Halloween. Can you imagine how creepy your house would look like from the street? You can also put some red lights in the yard as well.
Graveyard are not scary unless, of course, they’re in your front yard and there are bones and skeleton heads all over the lawn. On Halloween all these things lose their creepy side and become almost beautiful.
Inflatable decorations are very practical. You can use them year after year and simply display them in your front yard without having to worry about anything else. The hard part is finding a good theme.
You could also turn your whole house into a haunted castle. Of course, it’s only for show and the interior can remain as cozy and beautiful as ever. You just have to make a strong first impression with the decorations on the lawn.
Halloween can be both scary and fun. It can also be quite cute if you choose to decorate your front yard with inflatable ghosts and giant insects. Don’t forget the doors and windows.
Anything can look creepy if the lighting is right. Use that to your advantage if you want to make your house look scary for Halloween. The lights need to be subtle as not to reveal too much about the decorations.
Make it look like a giant spider took over your front yard. Cover it in fake spider web and try to make the whole display realistic. It’s not that hard. Put up some lights to avoid having people all tangled up in the web.
Wouldn’t you feel safe inside the house if you had a team of scary dudes guarding it? Even if it’s just for show, it’s still a pretty good idea and you can use it on Halloween.
Not everything has to be scary and creepy on Halloween, especially if you have young kids. You can try something cute, friendly and fun like happy pumpkins, cartoon characters and lovely faces.
Pumpkins can be a recurrent theme during Halloween. Use pumpkins of different shapes, sizes and colors to decorate your front yard. You can also add a few other things as well.
Turn your front yard into a beautiful display of lights. Use fluorescent decorations and add colored accent lights as well. Hang strong lights on the porch, in trees and everywhere else.
