Many of us enjoy decorating our houses and yards for Halloween as much as we do for Thanksgiving or Christmas, sometimes even more! It’s really a fun time of year for everyone and is the precursor to the big 2 holidays.
Some people go all out for Halloween though, heck I’ve seen people turn their entire house into haunted houses before. One way to show your Halloween spirit without compromising the integrity of your tidy home is using yard decorations. There are ones you can throw on your trees, set by your front door, or even inflatable ones and more.
Here’s a list of 25 outdoor Halloween decorations that will really spook trick-or-treaters and make you the talk of the neighborhood!
1. Zombie Torso Garden Statue
I had to put this one first because it’s one of the coolest and most realistic on this list. If you do it right and put it in the right spot it’s going to look like a zombie is crawling out of the ground!
2. Grim Reaper Tombstone
This tombstone statue is just over 2 feet high, so it’s not the size of a real grim reaper. But it’s well made, very spooky looking, and is currently marked down and can be had a great price on Amazon. A great addition to your front yard for when trick-or-treaters come knocking.
3. Inflatable Ghost Arch
If you have a walkway leading up to your front door or something similar, then this could be perfect for you! Just set up so trick-or-treaters must walk through it in order to knock and get their candy.
4. Creepy Beware Signs
Stake these beware signs in your yard to add a little bit of spookiness to your yard. They’re simple, inexpensive, and along with a few others on this list will really make your yard stand out this Halloween season.
5. Hanging Talking Witch
This eerily spooky life-sized witch hangs from a tree or your porch and says scary things to those that approach such as “Beware” and “I would turn back if I were you!”. It’s highly popular on Amazon (as you can tell from the reviews) and is definitely worth the price for all the fun you’ll have with it.
6. Spiderweb and Giant Spider
I love this one because it’s huge, super easy to install, and won’t break the bank. Simply anchor the spider web to a tree or the house on one end and stake in the ground on the other, make sure it’s spread out and looks good then place the giant spider. The color changing floodlights from #11 would make a great combo with this halloween yard decoration.
7. Jack-O-Lantern Garden Stakes
Nothing fancy here, just some more yard stakes but this time they’re spooky jack-o-lanterns. Get these and the tombstones from #9, or the beware signs from #4 to really dress up your yard around the front of your house.
8. Hanging Cocoon Corpse
With this Halloween prop you get a life-sized upside down hanging corpse wrapped in cobwebs. It’s very lightweight so a light breeze will make it sway in the wind adding to the creepiness it adds to your yard or front porch. It’s somewhat transparent so it’s best to use it in a non-lit area. Although a translucent corpse could look cool too..
9. Graveyard Tombstones
Make a spooky little graveyard right in your own yard with this 5 pack of RIP tombstones that you can stake right into the ground. They’re thin and lightweight making them easy to store away for next season.
10. Inflatable Jack-O-Lantern With Lights
This Halloween yard decoration comes with the inflatable jack-o-lantern and ghost, a powerful blower to inflate it in seconds, lights, and stakes to secure it in the ground. It’s waterproof and looks great as a yard decoration for Halloween.
11. Color Changing Remote Outdoor Floodlights
Light up the entire front of your house with these color changing floodlights. By using the app you can remotely change the colors and light modes anytime you want. Great for Halloween time but you can use these all year or for other holidays.
12. Solar Torch Lights
These can be used year ’round but will really look good on Halloween night along the path leading up to your front door. They look astonishingly real and will run all night on solar power. Great quality product and great reviews on Amazon.
13. Inflatable Spider
This large inflatable spider has an LED kaleidoscope in it’s body that really makes it look cool and spooky as a yard decoration. It’s a real head-turner that really draws attention to your yard. Don’t hesitate to get this one, buyers love it!
14. Life Sized Zombies
If you want to go extra scary then this is for you. This life-sized zombie woman in tattered rags has found a victim and is eating him alive! High quality, very realistic, light up eyes, bendable arms for custom poses… what more could you ask for?
15. Halloween Front Door Hangers
How about some simple hangers for the front door? Along with your jack-o-lantern at the front door you’ll be showing your Halloween sprit to trick-or-treaters instantly.
16. Hanging Ghosts
I always love seeing these hanging from trees! They’re so easy to set up. Basically just take them out of the box and walk outside and hang them from your porch or a tree. A truly easy Halloween decoration that you can use for years to come.
17. Trick or Treating Yard Stake Signs
These are kind of goofy and fun if that’s what you’re into. Very kid friendly so you want leave anyone with nightmares but they’re still a bit spooky so a good mix of fun and scary.
18. Inflatable Haunted House Castle
Perfect for indoors or outdoors this haunted house archway lights up, inflates in seconds, and kids love it! It’s a little on the pricey side but you’d be the talk of your street with this awesome set up.
19. Inflatable Pumpkin Archway
Ok, last inflatable archway I promise. this one is a little less scary so depending on your yard and how you like to decorate this one may work better for you. Like the others it’s fast inflating, really big, and easily collapses for fast stowing.
20. Inflatable Ghost Family
This ghost family trio are one of my favorite Halloween inflatables on this list. Trick-or-treaters, parents, and neighbors are sure to love these 10 ft blow up ghosts with LED lights. They’re made of high quality polyester and are weatherproof ensuring they’ll last for years to come.
21. 6 ft Hanging Witch Skeleton
This list wouldn’t be complete without a skeleton so here you go, a life-sized witch on a broom skeleton. She includes everything you see in the picture and is very high quality for the price. Just hang her up and you’re all set!
22. Evil Skull Treasure Chest
There are many things you could do with this skull treasure chest and put inside it but I think it would make a very spooky Halloween candy dish! It’s well made so use it all year long for whatever you want if you’re a fan of skulls and scary things.
23. Hanging Prisoner Skeleton
This AA battery operated, motion sensor activated skeleton prisoner in a cage is terrific! As trick-or-treaters approach his motion sensor is activated you’ll hear a scary voice and his eyes light up. Cool!
24. Hanging Ghost Skeleton
Here’s another hanging skeleton for you but this one is wearing some ghostly rags and has LED light up eyes. It’s really an amazing price for what you get with this guy, hang it right by the entry door for trick-or-treaters and guests!
25. Crashed Witch
This one is great! It’s just a witch that crashed into a tree. The hands and feet have little straps so attach her to any tree or post you want to add a little bit of fun to your Halloween yard decorations.
