Outdoor Scary Halloween Decorations
Nothing is safe when you are outdoors on Halloween. You can definitely spook people out with these scary decorations on your lawn. Trick or treaters would think twice before daring to venture to your home.
- Spider Skull
For people with the fear of spiders and skeletons, this must be the worst possible decoration for them to encounter. As if the spiky, black legs of the spider aren’t scary enough, it has to be topped by an aged skull. Totally gross and creepy, this decoration will spice up your outdoors.
- Garden Zombie
Zombies are creepy. Even though they are slow, there is something terribly frightening that they will soon catch up with you. So be careful with the emerging garden zombie, he might just be able to catch you!
What better way to celebrate Halloween than to turn your entire lawn into a makeshift graveyard? Nobody would want to walk around your lawn then in fear of waking the sleeping dead.
- Lighted Pathway
Normally when you think of lighted pathways you would think romantic and sweet. But not on Halloween when the lighted path is an eerie orange glow that casts shadows around the area. Even smiling ghosts and ghouls cannot make up for the creepiness that this image evokes.
- Headless Corpse
Not for the weak of stomach, the headless corpse decoration will be a smash hit for all the zombie lovers. It is bloody and gruesome during daytime. It’s bound to get worse when dusk falls.
- Flying Bats
During the day it can look quite attractive especially if it plays off with the vibrant colors of fall. Black and orange always blended well together. But come evening when everything is in one color and in shadows, those swarm of bats won’t look so friendly and appealing anymore especially if they have glowing red eyes.
