Halloween Garden Decor Ideas
Decorating with Halloween garden decor doesn’t have to cost a lot of money or be very time consuming. There are several ideas of Halloween garden decor. Here are some of them. If you want something a little less ghoulish and a bit more festive, why not implement a harvest theme. And as far as gardens go, this is an easy thing to do. Simply set the mood with a few bales of hay in and around the garden beds — or even the front lawn. Then strategically arrange corn stalks around the hay bales, pulling it all together with festive-looking Indian corn, colorful ornamental gourds and various pumpkins. Don’t forget to include a carved Jack-O’-Lantern, friendly of course. For additional interest, hollow out a large pumpkin and transform it into a beautiful container for mums. Create the same inviting effect with an odd-shaped pumpkin placed on a turned-up crate or hay bale. Scatter some autumn leaves (which shouldn’t be difficult), ornamental gourds and dried flowers around the pumpkin. You could even add a handsome scarecrow sitting next to it – these, by the way, are easy to make. And in keeping with the harvest theme, why not provide healthy apples in addition to candy for the trick-or-treaters. Find a bushel basket, wagon or similar device and fill it with apples. Place this next to your scarecrow, perhaps even in his lap, and allow the kids to treat themselves.
Don’t forget to add luminaries as part of your Halloween garden decor. You can place these throughout the garden and along the walkway, or basically anywhere you would like to draw attention. While you can purchase these, you may find it easier, if not cheaper, to create your own with hollowed-out gourds. Cut the bottoms out, carve faces in them and then place over a light source, such as a flashlight or small votive candle.
