For Halloween, the outdoor area is an impressive backdrop where you can meet ghosts, vampires, zombies, witches and other eerie creatures. Spiders, bats, black cats and skeletons are also part of the good horror atmosphere on the terrace or in the garden, which you can create yourself with a little creativity. Our first crafting idea for great Halloween decorations outdoors is for original lanterns made of disposable glass, which will provide the necessary lighting for the terrace or the garden. Wrap the glasses with bandage and secure the ends with glue. Decorate with decoration spiders and put in tealights. Finished!
Make Halloween decoration yourself outdoors with skeletons
Especially scary looks the Halloween garden decoration with skeletons. Skeletons, skulls and bones can be found in any shop for Halloween decoration and you can “originalize” them in the garden. A good idea is to sprinkle some soil on your lawn and use it to imitate a grave. Lay the bones on it or position the skeleton as if it were crawling out of its grave – as a result, you’ll get a gruesome zombie effect. If you have an old piece of furniture in the attic – for example a roasted bed or an old armchair – you can put it in the middle of the garden and put the skeleton on it – so the deco immediately becomes an eye-catcher! With skeletons you can also decorate the terrace and the front door and artificial skulls are the perfect candlesticks for the garden! You can also make a large spiderweb made of threads for the garden – there your guests will become entangled in the dark, making ghosts out of white fabric and cotton, which you can hang on a tree, for example, so that they look free-floating. The ghosts will look particularly scary if you make them sparkling eyes out of LED lights.
