How to Decorate a Deck for Halloween
Another great place to show off your
Halloween decorating skills is your deck. You can decorate your
deck for Halloween as impressively as you could your home,
driveway, sidewalk, or front lawn. A deck is often visible to
neighbors and anyone driving by.
You don't need to spend a lot of money to
decorate your deck for Halloween. There are cheap Halloween
decorations you can put on your deck creatively and they will
look impressive and spooky.
Here is an idea of how to decorate a deck
An inexpensive way to decorate your deck for
Halloween is to use lanterns. Solar lanterns are great if
you already have them.
Carve a lot of pumpkins and
light them from within with candles or
flashlights and set them up on the steps of the
deck and on the posts if they can safely sit
If you're a skilled carver
you might try a theme of designs, faces or
monsters or spider carvings. Drape every
surface in fake spider web.
The further you stretch it the better it
looks. Secure it with thumbtacks or wind around railings.
You can make a trail of creepy footprints.
Make stencils and spray them with something you can remove
later such as aerosol snow.
If you have a stereo system you can hook up,
pipe some scary music to go with your Halloween deck
decorations. General Halloween prop stores sell sound
effect tapes for this purpose.
