It’s that time of year where the ghouls, goblins, and outdoor Halloween Decorations come out of the closet. Have you started decorating your yard for Halloween these year?
We just decorated a little over the weekend and it made for great father son time too! Check out these Tips for Outdoor Halloween Decorations if it is on your to-do list.
Tips for Outdoor Halloween Decorations
Whether you are decorating your whole yard and setting up a spooky scene in one area. These tips will help you get the job done without casting any evil spells. Don’t forget to bring flexibility and creativity along for the decorating ride too.
Choosing a Location
Unless you intend to cover the whole yard with Halloween Decorations, choosing a location is important. The location can make mowing easier or harder, and can make it more visible to those driving by. We stuck with decorating near a tree in our front yard because each passersby can see the display and it’s easy to mow around.
Pick a Theme
Graveyard, spooky pumpkins, favorite characters, and even zombies are popular Outdoor Halloween Decoration themes. Picking a theme not only makes purchasing Halloween Decorations easier, it also makes set up easier as things start to flow together.
Zip Ties, Duct Tape, and Rocks Oh My!
Securing Outdoor Halloween Decorations can help prevent them from blowing away, falling over, or even getting stolen. Zip Ties are quick and easy ways to hang decorations in trees.
Rocks are great for holding things in their place on the ground. Duct Tape is good for securing cords or attaching things together. Another thing is to utilize the decorations themselves to hold things down like we did with our fabric and hands.
To often we get caught up in the “perfect look” of decorating and forget to have fun. My husband and son decorated this year and goofed around while they did it. A task that can seem daunting for something that stays up for month, can really be fun!
