Ten Easy Halloween Decorating Outdoor Ideas1. Use foam to create tombstones (check with your local dollar store for inexpensive autumn and Halloween craft items. We've found them to be really inexpensive. Use stone-like paints to give it an authentic look.
2. Dress skeletons in costumes - check with you local Goodwill or other thrift stores for inexpensive outfits. Use stone-like paints to create an even spookier skeleton
3. Make spooky signs out of scrap pieces of wood or foam (which can be painted). Hang with rope or cord.
4. Create a coffin from heavy cardboard or plywood. Place a skeleton inside along with playing spooky music.
5. Use black spray paint to cover branches. Place them in your graveyard or use them on your porch steps.
6. Make a maze of sheets (ghosts) on your porch. String lines across the topof the ceiling and hang sheets making it slightly difficult to navigate to the front door.
7. Make and place scarecrows on your porch. Use them to line the sides of porch steps. You can often find overalls and flannel shirts at Goodwill.
8. Use bales of straw to create a maze for the little ones.
9. Fill a wheelbarrow with dirt (or straw) and bury fake bones for the little ones to find.
10. String a line across your porch ceiling and attach a skeleton so you can pull it across your porch.
