Outdoor decorations that will make your home the talk of the neighborhood

Halloween is a special event. Unlike the hundreds of other celebrations we have throughout the year, this is the only time of year we celebrate being scared. It's a holiday about ghost and zombies, not cute little nutcrackers and fireworks.


It's the only day of the year where people won't judge you for deliberately trying to scare the crap out of little kids.

Is this legal? Scaring the wits out of some unsuspecting seven year old. Sure it is; welcome to Halloween son.

For such a unique day you need unique decorations.

Everyone has their style, scary, bloody or just plain strange.

Whatever your Halloween style is, we're sure that this year you're looking for some new inspiration to add to your collection of Halloween favorites.

Whether you have time to turn your home into your own private haunted house or if you just want a touch of the spirit then we have some of this year's best ideas.

Construct a Graveyard

Graveyards are eerie for most all kids. This year they're all the rage.You can’t go online with being hit with a tutorial on how to make your own gravestones at home.

But if you really want it to be spectacular consider doing more than just adding gravestones.

If your style leans a little more toward creepy than just scary then we've got a great idea for you. Dolls. Using dolls is a really terrifying move.

When traditional creepy just isn't enough.

For a lot of us, dolls are already disturbing, they don’t need the personality of Chucky to give us the creeps, their eyes alone will do the trick ... the way they watch you no matter where you go. But if you can strategically arrange a few dolls in and around your cemetery you'll really freak the kids out.

The Birds

For some, less is more. And anyone who had seen an Alfred Hitchcock movie will be terrified of this next idea. With a couple of sparse branches and a few fake crows, you can recreate the terrifying feeling you had the first time you watched Hitchcock's "The Birds." Add a few painted pumpkins and the starch quality of your decorations will make all who see it remember the final bird's attack scene.

 Jack-O-Arch

A favorite of ours this year is the Jack O Lantern archway.  Instead of carving a single pumpkin this year, you should troll through Michael's, Hobby Lobby and other craft stores for discounted foam pumpkins and carve them all.

The creepier the face the creepier the archway. Similarly, if you like the cute version of Halloween decorations, go for adorable when you start carving. You’ll need to build an arch for this one, but that can be done easily with PVC pipe or some scrap wood.

Once it's built attach the carved pumpkins all around it and light it all up with a string of Christmas lights.

Enjoy the Halloween holiday season, pretty soon you'll have to pack it away and replace it with charming little reindeer.
