Cool Halloween Decorations
I got the idea for this hub from my son who reminded me that his all time favorite holiday is just a couple of months away. Halloween has always been one of his favorite Holidays ever since he was very small. And considering the large amount of candy that all the kids accumulate every year, I'm sure that it's a favorite with a lot of kids.
And I have to admit that for quite a few years I didn't share his enthusiasm, but in the last couple of years I've actually started to enjoy the decorating aspect of it. We have to leave most of our decorating until the actual day due to local teenage pranks and pumpkin stealing, but I have to say it doesn't look bad at all, especially considering the fact that all of the decorating was done in one day.
I have to say that one of our coolest decorations yet is the funkin. A funkin is a artificial carvable pumpkin which means that you can keep your masterpiece forever.
A funkin is actually pretty easy to carve, so easy in fact that I can even do it. They come in all shapes and sizes. Most of the pumpkins that you see scattered around the porch are funkins. I was able to purchase them on ebay for a fairly good price.
Ghouls And Tombstones
No yard decorations would be complete without some ghouls and a few tombstones. If you're handy you can make your own with some Styrofoam and a few simple tools.
But if you're like me you're probably a little short of time so I buy most of my decorations. This can get a little expensive, so you might want to buy just a few extra items each year.
Skeleton Drinking Glasses
Cool Drinking Glasses
If you're serving drinks, a cool glass to serve them in is an absolute must. The Oriental Trading Co. has an excellent supply of holiday themed items and you can in fact find these glasses there. Or you might want to check out the glasses on Amazon.
Probably the second most important decoration is the skeleton and skulls decorations.
You can find them in a lot of different shapes and sizes but the one that we settled on is a five foot plastic skeleton that we hung on the porch. This along along with a few skulls to scatter around the porch completes the look.
What about a spider? No scary yard theme is complete without a big black and scary spider with red eyes looming overhead. Or maybe just lurking among the tombstones. We usually switch ours around from year to year so its never in the same place each time.
A silly witch decoration stuck to a tree ,or perhaps your house always add to the fun atmosphere. Or you might be going for more of the scary look, if so the witch in the second picture might better suit your tastes.
And last but not least is the food. When it comes to food you are never short of options and many of the recipes can be found quite easily right here on the Internet.
