Halloween night would be nothing if we did not prepare properly with our home decorations, our costumes, and our makeup. If you are one of those perfectionists who take care of even the smallest detail and want to stand out with the best of the best, today I will leave at your disposal and your attention some ideas for Halloween to decorate the exteriors and windows of your houses. Keep in mind that the interior decoration will only be seen by the people who invite, however, the exterior will be able to be enjoyed by all who pass by your door.
Halloween ideas for outdoor decoration
In many of our articles, we have talked about and explained the meaning of the pumpkin symbol on the night of October 30. So in order not to repeat ourselves, we will go directly to see the Halloween ideas with pumpkins that we have selected. The good thing about this ornament is that they can give it whatever nuance they want by incorporating a malicious or smiling face. The first variant is very suitable for all those who want to fully immerse themselves in the spirit of the party, while the second will be very suitable in the case that they want to soften their contours.
At the same time, in the pumpkin image, they can intensify the malicious by adding some candles to the decoration. To do this, they only have to place them inside and in this way at night the light of the candle will illuminate their home, coming out of the holes in the ornament and drawing the carved face on the opposite wall. On the other hand, if you want to complete the Halloween decoration you can add a few more candles around the pumpkins.
Remember that for the decoration to call the intention and for it to impress, the number of Halloween figures must be greater. Therefore, they do not have to be satisfied with a few objects placed in the garden, but their number and their size have to be proportional to the size of your garden. The same happens with the windows: so that the decoration can be seen from the outside it has to be of a larger size.
Some ideas for Halloween to decorate the gardens with any figure
When preparing and decorating for Halloween night, one of the funniest moments in organizing involves creating homemade Halloween crafts. The best thing about this task is that they can use materials that they do not use and that do not serve them in their day-to-day life. In this way, in the photo above you can see a chandelier or a kind of mobile lamp made with a pumpkin and a wire that will serve to transport it. In addition, this ornament can also be hung on the front door.
On the other hand, if the space in your garden allows it, you can add more dolls and figures. Remember that you can choose between white and orange pumpkins and you can combine them in the decorations for Halloween. Do not forget that witches and garlands or orange curtains will help you give another air to your exterior that will differentiate the typical decoration of most people.
Another way to fill your yard with Halloween decorations is by concentrating most of them on your front door. In this way, they will be able to create an original corridor that will guide their guests and friends to a different world from the one outside. You just have to make the decision in the way you are going to receive them: by giving them a scare or by inviting them to enter the underground world that they have created within.
Some Halloween themed ideas to decorate the front door
After having seen the ideas with many figures, we have to take a look at those that offer us simpler decorative variants. It is important to underline the fact that although it is simple, the decoration can be equally impressive. To do this, they only have to choose the theme of the ornaments. In the photo above you can see some elegant pumpkins arranged in an original way, maintaining the symmetry in the image: a pumpkin on each side of the door and another, significantly smaller, placed in the center of the door in a crown.
Bats are also an original variant, plus they can become the ideal solution for some Halloween crafts. However, if you want it to fit well, it is important not to place them in a scattered and disorderly way, but to order them following a line. One idea is that they can create the illusion that they are emerging from a pot of dried flowers or plants and flying past your front door, entering through a window.
Something similar can be done using the image of the spider. However, in this case, they do not have to forget to incorporate the cobweb element. The ideal area for this can be the door itself or also a side corner. If you want to add more Halloween decorations you can opt for skulls. This will make a direct allusion to the world of the dead.
More ideas for Halloween outdoors decorated with spiders
If you want to be more original in decorating with spiders, you can also choose larger figures of the same animals and place them scattered throughout the facade of the building. In this way, they will be suggesting to others that the house is about to be occupied by these critters. Go creatively, arranging them near the windows and door to add to this feeling.
Another interesting variant is to cover the facade with cobwebs. To do this, they can use a transparent fabric that will perfectly recreate this image. If you have old curtains or curtains in your house or want to change the ones you have now, you can take advantage of them for this purpose. The density with which you will place the ornaments depends on you. Remember that in the dark this decoration can become dangerous if it is not placed correctly.
Also take advantage of old sheets because with them you can simulate and give the image of an abandoned house. They only have to break them in a similar way to the one you see in the photo above and they have to leave them hanging. The same decoration can also be created in the interior.
Some ideas for Halloween to decorate the windows
On the other hand, the arrangements for Halloween for the windows offer us other original ideas that consist of vignettes and human figures and of dead people. However, in order to be seen at night from the outside, the silhouettes must be black and the light inside must be on. In order to create the terrifying effect that this decoration supposes, the lighting in the house has to be dim and with a yellowish tinge.
On the other hand, if they prefer they can also choose the figure of a monster and they just have to follow the previous principle to create the desired effect. If you have blinds, you can lower them and place the figure outside. The images of the decorations will be completed with the silhouettes of the trees outside in case there are some nearby.
At the same time, if your windows have bars, they can be used to create a decoration reminiscent of a prison. To intensify the effect, on the other side of the bars they can place the figures of the dead, skeletons, or even a monster. From this idea, they can let their imagination fly and create the best decoration for their interior and exterior.
Incorporating the figures of skeletons and ghosts in ideas for Halloween
In this section, you can also see some fairly simple ideas to decorate with skeletons. In the photo above you can see the skeleton of a human accompanied by the skeleton of a dog. This idea will be further reinforced if decorative tombs are added to the landscape. In this way, they will recreate the atmosphere of a cemetery.
Another very fun idea is to place some skeletons outside that give the feeling that they are talking to each other. They can put them in a sitting position and they can also increase their number. In this way, they will be creating a kind of skeleton gathering. If you want, you can also add the skeletons of some animals and some cobwebs with which they will get closer to the idea of Halloween.
We must not forget the ghosts that have always frightened children. A few ghosts scattered around the house or in the garden or a ring of ghosts outside will have the same decorative effect. Also, the materials you need to create these Halloween decorations are very simple. The basics are the white sheets to which they have to secure some mannequins to keep them up.
Halloween ideas to decorate the outside of the windows
In one of the previous sections, I have been giving you ideas on how you can turn your house into an abandoned house. If this idea appeals to them, they can also incorporate some wooden boards and nail them to the outside of the window. You can see this example reflected in the photo above. The other components of the decoration depending on your imagination.
Consider most of the decorative variants that are presented to you on the net in order to formulate the ideal model in your imagination. Once this is done they will be able to reflect it and transport it into reality. They can cover all the space they have and decorate it in the way they like best to attract attention in a pleasant way.
Do not forget that you can also play with the lighting. Put up some lamps with some stickers or pictures of a bat or a bird that is related to this day like the crow. In this way, the shadow of the sticker will fall directly on the surface of the wall and will complete the decoration of the building’s facade.
More ideas for Halloween to decorate in an original way
If you have stairs or steps outside, you cannot leave them undecorated. Some Halloween things like pumpkins, skulls, candles, and candle holders can be placed on both sides of the steps to form a hallway. It is important that they leave a space wide enough so that they can pass without tripping or falling, especially at night.
Something that moves away from the party air to a certain extent but that follows its theme is the decoration with a couple of skeletons sitting on a bench in the garden or at the front door. The idea of love is far from terrifying but they can turn the couple into sacrifices or people killed by the plague. If you prefer, you can also add the skeleton of a domestic animal that will reinforce the idea that these people led a family life.
On the other hand, returning for a moment to the theme of the stairs, they can also be decorated with candles placed in containers with inscriptions. In each of them, a word that is part of a whole sentence can appear. So they can leave a message for everyone who passes by and surprise with a scary quote that refers to the dead.
Modernities in the ideas for Halloween to decorate
Among the ideas and decorations for this party, we can also find a series of modernities and novelties among symbols such as the image of reptiles. Although it is not very clear where they come from, the simple fact that most people are repelled and scared is enough to integrate them into the set.
