Completely Ridiculous Halloween Decorations

Tacky Halloween Decorations

Due to the overwhelming popularity of Completely Ridiculous Halloween Costumes and Have Yourself a Tacky Little Christmas, I thought I should combine the two ideas and create a new hub. So here you have it... Completely Ridiculous Halloween Decorations.

Halloween is not really a time to consider using excellent taste in decorating. You really are not going to be thinking about the best floral arrangements for your party (unless you are putting out dead flowers). You won't be thinking about how pretty your outfit will look. Your focus will be more on how far you can take your outfit to scare, amuse, or push the envelope this Halloween.

So why not think the same way for your Halloween decorations? There are plenty of decorations out there that are in really bad taste. You can even keep them in your home so your neighbors don't think you are a weirdo. Unless you'd like for your neighbors to think you are a weirdo. In that case, go ahead and use these ideas in your yard.

Glow in the Dark Toilet Paper

Wow! Where has this product been all my life? Not only can you freak out guests by putting this in the bathroom, you can really prank people with this stuff. Why not use it in your own home to string around the livingroom if you are having a Halloween party? Perhaps you'd like to use it on the trees in your friend's yard? If he's ever pranked you before by using regular boring old toilet paper, you will certainly have him beat this year. Make sure to beam flashlights on the glow in the dark toilet paper right before people see it!

Newlydeads Bride & Groom Salt & Pepper Shakers

Want to shake up things this Halloween at dinner time? Why not buy some "interesting" Newlydeads Bride and Groom Salt and Pepper Shakers? Who wouldn't want to shake some salt out of the head of a small ghost? Tacky? Yes! Funny? Yes!

This is perfect for a smaller Halloween party. Also, if you are into having a simple dinner for Halloween, this is the perfect subtle Halloween prop. These also make the perfect wedding gift for your favorite goth couple!

DevilMingo Flamingo Lawn Ornaments

One of the tackiest lawn ornaments of all time is the pink flamingo. Naturally, when celebrating the tackiest of all Halloween decorations, the DevilMingo Flamingo lawn ornaments have to be featured. It is not enough to just decorate your tacky pink flamingos with a Halloween garland or something. Even better, you need to buy a ghoulish devil version of your pink flamingos.

Sure your neighbors probably won't come near your house if you put these in the front yard, but hey, it will save you money when you don't have to give out candy this year to the Trick or Treaters.

20 Foot Giant Spider

Once upon a time, I actually owned this spider. I will say it was probably the best Halloween decoration I ever had. Unfortunately, since it is made out of flimsy plastic, it is really only good for one Halloween. However, it is so awesome and so low-priced, it is well worth it. I highly recommend this decoration for anyone looking for an over-the-top decoration that is reasonably priced and easy to assemble.

Hanging Clown / Reaper

Let's face it, clowns are not really funny or cute. I am not sure why anyone pretends this to be true. Clowns are scary. Most people will admit that clowns pretty much terrify them. So why do we keep living this lie? Let's all deal with the fact that clowns are horrifying.

Now that we've come to terms with this awful truth, let's talk about clown decorations for Halloween. If you truly want to scare your friends and family, you should buy a hanging clown decoration and really take Halloween to the next level. You can easily prank those around you by hiding this guy in a place where he will be least expected. You'd just better hope they have a sense of humor about it!

Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

If you are a fan of Ghostbusters, than surely you can appreciate a giant inflatable Stay Puft Marshmallow Man for your front yard this Halloween. All of your friends and neighbors will surely get a laugh when they see this enormous puffy guy in your yard. Not only is this hilarious, this could be a horrifying sight if you walk by it in the middle of the night. Suddenly all that marshmallowy goodness is out to get you!

Scared Stupid

Now that we've gone through this list of totally tacky and tasteless decorations, I'll bet you are ready to go out there and scare others with your extremely bad taste. Well, have fun with that! Halloween only comes once a year. Enjoy it however you see fit. If you want to deck out your place in completely ridiculous Halloween decorations, you have every right.

Happy Halloween!

This is a fun hub, though it seems a lot of people in our town don't need any help at all finding the tackiest Halloween decorations! Hmmm...that should get me TP'd this Halloween. Maybe they'll use the glow in the dark TP– that would be fun!

Hahaha... if you do get your lawn toilet papered this Halloween, I do hope they care enough to use the glow in the dark kind. That would be too awesome. Thanks for reading and thanks for the comment!

I love Halloween, but some decorations are corny and don't add to a house!

Thank you both for your comments. Rosie, yes, the price of the glow in the dark toilet paper is a little high. I would definitely only buy a roll or two for a special occasion, like Halloween or a great prank. Thanks for votes! And Mike, yes, they are corny but that is the fun part. :-)

What a brilliant hub and great ideas!!

I love the glow in the dark loo paper - wonder if it would be any use if we have a power cut like last Halloween? I also love the spider - this is a great idea as it makes a wonderful, scary, beautifully naff and weird centre piece!

As to the clowns - no way! I would be scared to have any thing to do with clowns near me. I like to be scared in a nice way - like vampires, ghouls etc.! But not in a nasty way - clowns! you are right about them they are horrible!

Loved this hub! Voted up + awesome!

Thank you so much! The glow in the dark toilet paper is just too funny. Maybe it would help during a power outage. I also can't stand clowns. I would not allow one in my apartment even if it were just for decoration. Thanks for the votes!

Hi Jeannie, glow in the dark toilet paper would be a lot of fun! I have to agree with Seeker7 though; the clowns would freak me out a bit LOL. Voted up/funny

Wacky ideas but totally cool. Love your sense of humor and I'm going for the giant spider. Rated up.

Cloverleaf - Yes, the clown would weird me out too much as well. I've never liked clowns. I love the idea of glow in the dark toilet paper. Someone had a lot of free time thinking up something like that. Thanks for the votes!

angInwu - I am glad you enjoyed the hub. The giant spider is well worth it. Every now and then, you have to tape a leg back to the ceiling, but it is really awesome. Thanks for the comment!

Lol love this hub, I am going to have to try the hanging clowns. I might even make some popcorn fall on people when they walk in the room to see my evil clown, like in the movie (Killer Clowns From Outer Space). I had to share this hub with my fellow pinners, I know they will get a kick out of it.

Thank you so much! I am scared of clowns, so therefore, clowns make a great decoration for Halloween. I think you should have popcorn fall on people when they walk by. That would be great! :-)

At least you don't even have to bother turning the light on in the bathroom at night to find your way around it. :-)

Love this stuff. I confess...I like pink flamingos. Among white flowers. The devilish ones would be cool lining the driveway. Not sure about the radioactive TP though. That sounds scary!

I still have that spider! He has endured three Halloweens! And my new house is too small for him. Maybe I will donate him to someone who wants to try and beat my tacky lawn ornaments. Haha!

Great hub!

Some really cute ideas here! I like the glow in the dark toilet paper and the hanging spider. My grandkids will get a real kick out of the toilet paper! :)

Sharkye11 - You still have your spider? I am so jealous! Mine did not make it through the first year. Of course, he was in a dorm room and fell down a lot. He kept falling on my roommate. I suppose I am lucky she was a good sport. I happen to like pink flamingos too. I even have pink flamingos sheets for my bed. :-) Thanks for the comment!

sgbrown - I can imagine anyone might enjoy the toilet paper... I mean, glow in the dark toilet paper is just awesome. The spider is a lot of fun, too. Thanks for your comment.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

During the last forty years in the Midwest, front lawn Hallowe'en decorations have been displayed before October 31 increasingly longer.

This would be tacky enough.

But no.

During the same forty years these decorations have come not only to Horribly Herald Hallowe'en but also to Miserably Mummify and Memorialize it.

We now celebrate not only the Pre-Skull Sixty Days Of Plastic Septober, but also the Post-Munster Twelve Days Of Vomit.

Entonces, this Pumpkin Appassionata.

The Twelve Days Of Tacky

A Post-Hallowe'en Carol by Caleb Boone.

To be sung to the tune of "The Twelve Days Of Christmas."

On the first day of Hallowe'en my true love said to me: "Pick up that vomit or I'll break your knee!"

On the second day of Hallowe'en my true love said to me: "Take down those aerosol cobwebs and pick up that vomit or I'll break your knee!"

On the third day of Hallowe'en my true love said to me: "Throw away those two hundred paper-sacks-with-candles, take down those aerosol cobwebs and pick up that vomit or I'll break your knee!"

On the fourth day of Hallowe'en my true love said to me: "Dissassemble the stuffed-farm-family-on-straw-bales, throw away those stupid brown paper sack 'luminarias,' eradicate those malodorous fake cobwebs and pick up that vomit or I'll poison your tea!"

On the fifth day of Hallowe'en my true love said to me: "Quit kissing that cardboard statue of Elvira every time you pass it by, you numbskull! Toss that moronic stuffed farm family, and those hundreds of retarded Polynesian 'Luminarias,' vacuum those junky cobwebs and pick up all that 1960s rubber fake vomit before I throttle thee!"

On the sixth day of Hallowe'en my true love said to me: "What in the world are we supposed to do with all this dry ice in the deep freeze? Quit hugging that life sized cardboard statue of Dracula Elvis you picked up in Branson! Burn the straw-stuffed farmers, scrap those Redbook 'Luminarias,' pluck those sprayed-on spider-webs and please get that rubber vomit off of the driveway!"

On the seventh day of Hallowe'en I threatened my next-door neighbour: "I will call the police if you don't unchain those three pit-bulls dressed like Cerberus, stop wafting dry ice clouds every evening, you ghoulish lout! Quit displaying that ten-foot inflatable Vincent Price with his recorded lugubrious laughter! Throw away the inane farm family, the hundreds of hippy paper sack 'luminarias,' and those rotten dime-store cobwebs, and pick up that vomit so we can all be free!"

On the eighth day of Hallowe'en I walked through my entire subdivision with a pistol and said: "You've got ten seconds to un-Dia-De-Los-Muertos your lawn or I'll dispatch you to heaven! Euthanize those mythical pit-bulls, turn off the dry ice clouds! Elvira and John Wayne were never married! Burn the stuffed farm family you Orphan-Annie freak, pick up the thousand luminarias you lunatic, tweeze away the cobwebs and pick up that vomit for it sickens me!"

On the ninth day after Hallowe'en my true love handed me a book of matches and said: "Those hundreds of obnoxious large decorative shocks of cornstalks are very dry, those Mexican skeletons are horrible, I thought pit-bulls were illegal, and the dry ice is so thick I can't breathe! Why do I have to behold Elvira every morning during breakfast? The stuffed family is giving me nightmares, the thousands of luminarias are starting to blow into the street, the fake cobwebs got caught in the grille of my car and our cat brought home a small piece of rubber vomit! Yuk!"

On the tenth day of Hallowe'en the Police Chief said to me: "Be on the lookout for a gang of Goth youth methamphetamine addicts, the Fire Marshall will impound all those shocks of corn and straw bales, the Day of the Dead Tamale Rally has been canceled, we have arrested everyone with a pit-bull, the dry ice clouds are a traffic hazard! We are writing nuisance tickets and confiscating every cardboard Taylor Swift statue! We are keeping an eye on the stuffed farm family, jail trustees are cleaning up the thousands of luminarias, the fake cobwebs got caught in the grille of my patrol car and my dog brought home a large piece of rubber vomit!"

On the eleventh day of Hallowe'en I told my secretary: "I think I stepped on a popcorn ball in the parking lot, the Goth methamphetamine addicts drove their Harley Davidsons through the neighbourhood last night, tiny filaments from the shocks of corn and straw bales are getting stuck in my hair, the Day of the Dead banjo fell off my neighbour's display creche, I am glad they've harvested and slaughtered all the pit-bulls, the dry ice clouds are making me car-sick! Cardboard Elvira statues don't fit very well in a tree-limb-chopper! It will be a rare day when I can gaze with equanimity upon any stuffed farm family, if people love thousands of luminarias let them move to Las Vegas, fake cobwebs don't burn very cleanly and rubber vomit makes me want to pass out!"

On the twelfth day of Hallowe'en my true love said to me: "If I never see another pious re-enactment of 'The Da Vinci Code' it will be too soon, I think I saw you step on a popcorn ball and it made me laugh a lot, the Goth methamphetamine addicts have got to go, tiny filaments from the shocks of corn and straw bales are getting stuck in my teeth, the Day of the Dead black caballero's sombrero blew across my scotch foursome, pit-bulls are so Sturgis, the dry ice clouds are making me wish we lived on the moon! Alaska's Idiot Governess Sarah Palin looks like Elvira -- how gross! Stuffed farm families are awful, if people love thousands of luminarias let them move to Singapore, fake cobwebs go hand-in-hand with Oprah Winfrey and pick up that vomit or I'll break your knee!"

Have a Dovely.

Sincerely yours,

Caleb Boone.

You certainly put a lot of thought behind your comment. Don't worry, I started taking down my decorations yesterday.
