Nothing says spooky season quite like neighborhoods filled with Halloween-inspired yards! When it comes to decorating your yard for the holiday, we believe that a little work can go a long way. There isn’t a need to break the bank when it comes to sprucing up your outdoor space for Halloween!
These are 10 of our favorite go-to affordable Halloween yard decoration ideas.
Pumpkins and Gourds: Stop by your favorite local Louisville farmers market to pick up pumpkins and gourds of all shapes, sizes, and colors for your porch! Spend an evening carving pumpkins to add glowing Jack O’ Lanterns to your outdoor Halloween decor.
Mums: These fall flowers will add pops of red, orange, yellow, and purple to your yard.
Corn husks and sunflowers: Corn husks make for the perfect natural element to create a fun garland to hang around doors and windows. Sunflowers will also add the perfect warm fall tones to your yard!
Outdoor lighting: It’s important that your yard is well-lit for trick-or-treaters! Make sure you have sufficient outdoor lighting and lit pathways way to ensure safety. Outdoor lighting can also be utilized to highlight spooky elements!
Fall cleanup: Pruning bushes, cleaning up leaves, trimming branches, and more will enhance your yard’s curb appeal and enhance the safety of your yard for visitors. There are plenty of benefits to a fall cleanup, and a team of landscaping professionals can provide a fall cleanup in no time!
Utilize your fall cleanup: You can paint your downed trimmings and branches to incorporate fun fall pops of color! Think warm orange, bright red, neutral grey, hunter green, and crisp white. You can also fill pumpkin-printed trash bags with leaves!
Scarecrow: Use elements from your very own outdoor space and clothes lying around your house to create a scarecrow!
Firepit: Make sure you have a space outside dedicated to entertaining so that you can enjoy your Halloween decor. A firepit is a perfect place to gather to watch your yard glow!
Apples: Pick apples around town or from a local Louisville apple picking farm to add pops of red around your yard with baskets full of crisp apples. You can add a spooky and witchy element by adding a “poison apples” sign to the baskets!
Be resourceful: Peek around your house to see what you can repurpose into Halloween yard decoration ideas! Wheelbarrows, baskets, buckets, rope, string lights, tattered clothes, brooms, candles, lanterns, blankets, and more are everyday items around your home that can be utilized as Halloween decor for October!
