When looking for Halloween decor, you have many fun Halloween decorating ideas to pick from.
- Statues: Both still and animated statues can be put in your yard to scare trick-or-treaters.
- Wreaths: Decorate your front porch with a spooky wreath.
- Ornaments: Themed ornaments can be hung on plants or displayed on hooks along your walls.
- Light strings: Strings of lights with pumpkins or skulls can be wound around front porch railings or used along a mantel.
- Bowls: Give out candy in a themed bowl.
- Figurines: Figurines are often used as a table centrepiece or other sort of indoor decoration.
- Lighting: Lanterns and candleholders are very suitable for this holiday that takes place at night.
- Atmospheric decorations: Long strings of cobwebs, projectors that display spooky images, or fog machines are all great for a haunted effect.
Decorations are not just limited to the inside of your home. If you have a big lawn, you can extend your Halloween decorations all the way to the road with these outdoorsy props.
- Blow-up Figures: Giant inflatable objects are often a good way to add whimsical or creepy decorations to a yard. Inflatable figures come in ghost, pumpkin, spider, monster, or haunted house options. You can find battery operated options if your lawn is not near an outlet.
- Tombstones: Fake tombstones can be artfully scattered around the lawn to make it look like a graveyard.
- Body parts: Make a lawn even scarier by partially burying fake hands or feet so that they look like they are erupting from your yard.
- Tree faces: Attach faces or arms to your lawn's trees to make them look like they are coming to life.
Typical decorations tend to follow a few specific themes:
- Pumpkins: Both plain pumpkins and carved jack o' lanterns are iconic symbols that show up in Halloween decor.
- Skeletons: In addition to whole skeletons, skulls and individual bones are also used.
- Scary animals: Black cats, bats, spiders, and crows are all common themes.
- Monsters: Ghosts, witches, mummies, Frankenstein's monster, werewolves and other common horror monsters can create freaky decor.
- Halloween colours: Black, orange, and white are the most traditional options, but some decor also uses green and purple.
