4 Quick and Easy Outdoor Halloween Decorating Ideas for the Yard

Halloween is fast approaching! Is your yard ready?

While the Christmas holiday season is still the most popular for decorating, outdoor Halloween decorations are becoming more and more popular. You may find that if you don’t put something up for the occasion, you’ll be the only house on the block undecorated.

But not to worry! You don’t have to spend hours putting up lights to make your home look festive, these Halloween decorating ideas for the yard are quick and simple.

  1. Dress Up Your Door.

Greet the trick-or-treaters in spooky style with a door decoration that is inspired by the season. At Happy Holidayware, we have a wide selection of door hangers made from durable aluminum that will last through many years of use.




  1. Light Things Up.

You don’t have to bust out the orange string lights to give your house an eerie glow for the season. You can purchase outdoor decorations with integrated lighting that will bring some illumination to those autumn nights. Some, like our Halloween Tombstone Light Up Skull and Halloween Tombstone Light Up Spider, even run on batteries, so there is no need to run extension cords outdoors.

  1. Try a Sign.

A yard sign with words like “Happy Halloween” or in the shape of a pumpkin can put a festive finishing touch on the look of your home and will look stylish by day and by night. You can put a sign in the path of one of your landscape lights to ensure that it’s easy to be seen or purchase a special outdoor spotlight for the yard to light it up. Our Happy Pumpkin Yard Sign, Scary Pumpkin Yard Sign and Spooked Pumpkin Yard Sign can be placed in a row or staggered through your landscaping to bring some festive fun.

  1. Add Some Character.

Make your yard home to some spooky or friendly Halloween-themed characters with figurine yard decorations. Typically, these decorations have stakes on their bases that allow you to easily insert them into the ground or stable bases that keep them upright on flat surfaces. Check out our Skeleton, Pumpkin Man, and Witch Yard Decorations to get inspired.
