Halloween Graveyard Ideas

Halloween Yard Ideas for a GraveYard

One of the Creepiest places to be on Halloween....The Graveyard

People love the Graveyard theme for decorating for Halloween. You can easily make your front yard creepy and spooky by adding some tombstones, and skeletons. You can make it so the trick or treaters have to walk through the graveyard to get to the door. And don't forget to add a coffin or two and some fog. You can also add so eerie Halloween Music and some spiderwebs and bats.

I bet with a Spooky Graveyard in your front yard you will be the hit of the neighborhood this Halloween 2010.

A great place to start is with a Graveyard Backdrop

By using a graveyard backdrop you, like an artist are setting up your canvas.

Simply place this in your front yard and then you can begin to add props in front of it. It looks very much like a real graveyard.

Graveyard Ideas!

My goal is to give you a few ideas to get started. This video has a lot of ideas of what you can add to make your graveyard scary. Some I have already mentioned, but I think this video really gives you a visual of what can look really cool.

Need some ideas to get started? Check out this video

Halloween Coffin

One of the scariest things you can add to your Halloween Graveyard theme is of course a Halloween Coffin Prop. Many coffins available are very realistic looking yet they are very inexpensive to buy. And you can be creative with what or who you put in it. You may choose a skeleton or a zombie. Or you may even want to add Dracula himself!

The main thing is to have fun!

Make Your Own Coffin or Buy One

Why not make your own coffin? It would be pretty easy by simply by cutting up cardboard with two small pieces which will be the top and bottom and 4 long rectangular shaped pieces for the sides. Then taping it together and spray down with brown or black spray paint. There you go! You now have a coffin.

Simply add a skeleton or scary prop and you are all ready to add the prop to your graveyard scene.

If you don't want to be bothered with making a coffin, simply order one like this corrugated coffin.

Calling all Zombies! You gotta have some Zombies in a Graveyard, right?

I think adding some scary zombie arms that are sticking out of the ground is sure to be a hit for your grave yard.

You are sure to creep out your trick or treaters with these!

I saved the scariest one for last. This Lunging Graveyard Baby Doll is super creepy. She would be an amazing addition to any Halloween graveyard. Her skull is broken but her eyes still glow. She jumps at you when you get to close and screams. She has a volume control so you can control how loud she gets.

I really love the detail on her face. She is scary even when she isn't plugged in.

Have you ever had a Grave Yard Theme in your yard?

      I've never done it myself, but there are a few houses in my neighborhood that do it. It always looks cool.

      I did this year and it was great. Had a lot of comments from kids and grownups alike. Then I greeted everyone as Skelator at the door.

      The grave yard had pop up zombies, fog, cob webs and creepy sounds in every corner.

      I have never done the grave yard theme, but I have several neighbors who love decorating grave yard style.

      No but we've always wanted a bunch of dead people hanging around out least one night a year.

      Never decorated like a graveyard, but I've definitely done some youthful graveyard trespassing for Halloween. Decorating seems like a much safer idea :)

      (For the daily touch of coincidence, the security word is 'unafraid'.)
