The Best Ideas for Outdoor Halloween Decorations
Prepare to Scare...
On Halloween, I always enjoy walking around our neighbourhood and appreciating all the spooky and outrageous outdoor Halloween decorations.
With anything from spine-chilling skeletons hanging from the garage to over-the-top inflatable pumpkins sitting on the lawn, it’s always a contest to see whose Halloween yard decorations are the most impressive!
If you’re looking for some Halloween decoration ideas this season, then here are my top picks for the absolute best outdoor Halloween decorations that are fun, outrageous, and splendidly scary.
Sinister Skull With Halloween Lantern
Imagine having this menacing guy greet your trick-or-treaters on Halloween!
Of all the Halloween lanterns I have seen, this one is by far the coolest.
The Sinister Skull makes an awesome outdoor Halloween decoration because you can place him near on your garden path or on your front lawn, and it appears as though he is emerging from the ground to give your visitors an ominous welcome.
Kids will just love this spooky and bright Halloween lantern; measuring 11” x 6 ½” x 13” it is not too big and so will compliment your other Halloween yard decorations perfectly.
Takes two AA batteries.
Giant Creepy Cloth Spider
Who isn’t freaked out by giant creepy spiders?
This enormous eight-legged monster is sure to catch anyone off guard, especially if its dangling cloth happens to lightly brush a trick-or-treater’s shoulder as they walk by. Add fright and excitement with an outdoor Halloween decoration that requires no assembly, just hang it up!
Extending a massive 4 feet you can literally hang up this impressive outdoor Halloween decoration anywhere you want to creep out your visitors; it is sure to make the hairs stand up on the back of their necks.
Not for children under 3 years.
2 Skeleton Flamingo Lawn Ornaments
I love the uniqueness of these outdoor Halloween decorations.
These two plastic flamingos feature painted-on bones that glow in the dark! Just let them sit under bright light for several minutes before placing them out on the yard at night, and these guys will be sure to have passers-by turning their heads.
If you’re looking for Halloween decoration ideas that are “a bit different” then a pair of skelamingos will probably do the trick! This set requires a little easy assembly first. Once assembled, you will get one long neck measuring 30” and one short neck measuring 27” tall.
Spooky Skeleton Body Parts
The ultimate Halloween yard decoration has to be a scattering of spooky skeleton body parts on the front lawn. How about conveniently positioning these bones so that your visitors have to cautiously step over them as they approach the front door?
This awesome outdoor Halloween decoration also doubles up as a Halloween lantern because the skeleton’s head lights up! Get the whole family involved and have some fun assembling the body parts; just pop together his arm and legs and insert 2 AA batteries into his skull. Hey presto, an outdoor Halloween decoration that will grab everyone’s attention.
For children 10 years and up.
8ft Airblown Inflatable Halloween Graveyard
For the best WOW factor on the block this Halloween, this 8ft Airblown Inflatable Halloween Graveyard will certainly impress and intrigue your visitors.
It self-inflates in just seconds, making it very simple to set up and display. The internal glowing lights create a spooky graveyard ambiance that is eerie and amusing for children and adults alike, and will provide much enjoyment for the family this Halloween.
This Halloween outdoor decoration is so simple to store for next year; simply unplug to deflate and then fold away.
No Halloween is complete without a Garden Zombie!
This hair-raising garden sculpture is remarkably creepy; it is a life-sized statue that will shock your trick-or-treaters as he appears to raise himself up out of your bedding plants, threatening to feast on their brains.
If you’re looking for bloodcurdling Halloween decoration ideas to frighten and shock anyone approaching then the Garden Zombie will be sure to achieve your goal. The detail on the Garden Zombie is so remarkable that he is guaranteed to scare away any trespasser.
In just seconds you will have your corpse fully assembled and positioned; all you have to do is wait for the screams...
Did You Know...
The word Halloween comes from from the term "All Hallows Eve" which took place on October 31st, and marked the end of summer in Northwestern Europe.
"All Hallows Day" or "All Saints Day," was the next Day, November 1st , putting Halloween on the eve of All Saints Day.
