A home featuring
outdoor Halloween decorations is impossible to resist.
It is such a fun event to
celebrate and brings to mind spooky images of zombies lurking in the night,
Frankenstein, vampires, floating ghosts, a cemetery with an old creepy
mausoleum, witches flying on broomsticks, werewolves, mummies, gargoyles, bats,
large rats, skeletons, reapers, tombstones, and creaking haunted houses.
There is an
abundance of fabulous exterior Halloween decor to choose from.
I will explore
some ideas to help you get started on this ghoulish voyage in making the
exterior of your home look quite spooktacular this Halloween.
Some Ideas for
Exterior Halloween Decor
You can add a sense
of eeriness to the exterior of your home by incorporating cobwebs, giant
spiders, tombstones, a couple of skeletons, and a bloody dummy hanging from a
tree (if you happen to have a tree in front of your home). Also, staked yard
ghosts give the front lawn a sense that the home is haunted while blending in
with the tombstones.
Some hay stacks and
pumpkins help complete the look for the autumn/Halloween spirit. You can even
put a Halloween doormat that creaks or makes scary noises to welcome people
through your front door.

the sound of chains will add eeriness to your exterior Halloween decor.
