Outdoor Witch Decor
If you want to incorporate a witch theme in your front yard, there are many easy ways to make this dream a reality. Thanks to an article from Better Homes & Gardens, it’s now easier than ever to create a life-sized outdoor witch statue that will surely spook the neighborhood children. All you need for this fun do-it-yourself project is ¼ inch of plywood, a jigsaw, sandpaper, primer, paint, a 3-foot long wooden stake, and black screws.
To make the witch statue, use a grid or photo copier to enlarge the witch pattern to stand roughly five feet tall. Trace the pattern onto a piece of plywood and cut it out using a jigsaw. Use the sandpaper to smooth out any rough edges before you apply primer and black paint to the wood. After two or three coats of paint, leave the witch statue to dry for several hours. Screw the wooden stake to the back of the witch cutout, and push the bottom of the stake into the ground.
If you’re looking for a way to bring some witch decor inside your home, consider ordering a pair of our painted metal witches. Perfect for display on a coffee table, kitchen island, or entryway, these beautiful pieces of Halloween decor will help you set a spooky mood inside of your home.
If Halloween is synonymous with anything, it’s skeletons. There are many ways to incorporate spooky skeletons into your outdoor decor. One way is to pick up some inexpensive plastic skeletons at your local Halloween store to pose around your yard or front porch. You can make these scary figures appear like they are climbing up your house or working in your yard. This bone-chilling decoration idea will transform your once sweet home into a frightening graveyard.
Another way to add skeletons to your outdoor decor is by purchasing a set of our Halloween yard stakes. With three scary and unique designs, these Halloween decorations feature a regular skeleton, a skeleton witch, and a skeleton pumpkin. Simply stick the stakes into your yard or garden and watch the neighborhood kids scream with glee!
If you’re looking for a way to make your house stand out from the rest, you may want to consider a way to incorporate Halloween lights into your outdoor decor. Many homeowners opt for black lights, which can transform a dull and lifeless front stoop into an eerie Halloween atmosphere. Consider changing out your current porch lights or front yard lamp posts with black light bulbs or add strobe lights to your entryway. Strobe lights can be a great addition to an outdoor graveyard scene, and you can increase the spook factor by adding a fog machine as well.
For a more traditional Halloween lighting approach, add electronic lights to your pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns. This can create a scary and inviting welcome for trick- or- treaters passing by. If you’re looking for a creepy way to lure visitors to your front door or stoop, pick up a our tin bag sugar skull luminary set or our tin bag jack-o-lantern luminary set to illuminate the walkway to your home.
Aside from pumpkins and skeletons, ghosts are one of the most popular Halloween decorations. They can be used for both indoor and outdoor decor, and you can make your own ghosts at home from a variety of materials. Whether you decide to make your own ghosts out of balloons and white bedsheets, or you create your own mini cheesecloth ghosts, there are several ways to turn your home into a spooky atmosphere. Our set of recycled wood ghost decor can make the perfect ghouly addition to your front porch or backyard.
Last but not least, it’s always a good idea to dress your home up with pumpkins. Whether you choose a weekend to carve pumpkins with the kids to display on your porch, or you order our galvanized pumpkin set online to display on your front steps, guests and visitors will love admiring the effort you put into your Halloween decorations.
