As the Spirits Rise, So Should Your Halloween Lawn Décor

5 decorating tips that will entice spooks to your yard.

Trick or treat! Halloween is the best time to let your imagination run wild and create a little lawn haunt for visiting ghouls! Construct a theme from a favorite movie or your favorite hobby or sport. The best decorations provide an experience for all visiting spirits!

Group unexpected elements together to devise fun and imaginative scenes. Grouping decorations in one area provides an opportunity for little devils to interact with a story rather than observing random yard decorations.

Repurpose and play with combinations of old costumes, clothes, and common items and decorations from your home, thrift shops, or yard sales. Stuff old clothing with leaves, secure figures on lawn furniture, then secure an old mask for the head. Place fun retro items nearby elaborating on your theme! Play around!

Consider the viewpoint of your guest goblins, small and tall. Place elements on the ground and other decorations higher up to invite their gaze in multiple directions. Use trees to incorporate floating elements and don't forget lights!

Halloween décor doesn’t have to be scary. Glam up your lawn with black-n-white patterned pumpkins. Follow us on Pinterest for more Halloween tips and inspiration.
