Halloween is an especially fun holiday for decorating and having fun with your outdoor space. Why not include your deck in the spooky fun? There are so many ways to create a spooky Halloween look that is fit for a haunted house right in your backyard! As you prepare your home for fun Halloween festivities, consider these four easy tips for decorating your deck this Halloween.
Line Your Deck with Eerie Orange and Purple Lights
What better way to light up your deck for Halloween than with festive orange and purple string lights along the perimeter of your deck? Let these spooky little lights outline your deck full of cobwebs, jack-o-lanterns, and other fun Halloween decorations! Orange lights are a perfect way to add some color to your spooky design, as well as to add a little bit of light to your outdoor space in the evening.
Place Fun and Spooky Jack-o-Lanterns Around Your Deck
There’s nothing more perfect for Halloween than a spooky jack-o-lantern lit up in the dark! Have fun carving pumpkins and make some fun and scary jack-o-lanterns to place around your deck for Halloween night. Not only will you have fun doing this craft with your family, but your deck will also have a fun and spooky Halloween feel when you are done!
Hang Stringy Cobwebs from Your Deck Railings
Complete the look of your haunted house with fun, stringy cobwebs hanging from your deck railings. Your cobwebs will look perfect alongside your orange and purple string lights! For an extra spooky effect, add some creepy spiders to your cobwebs, or shine a blacklight for a fun glow-in-the-dark effect.
Add Spooky Accessories
From glow-in-the-dark ghosts to creepy bats, finish off the look of your haunted house with some spooky accessories for trick-or-treaters to enjoy. Consider placing battery operated candles and some dry ice inside of your jack-o-lanterns for an extra creepy effect along the perimeter of your deck.
