3. Creepy Ghost Stands

I personally love going all out with my decorations during Halloween. I love decorating both the inside and the outside of my house. The inside, so that those in the house will get into the Halloween spirit. And, I especially love decorating the outside of my house. I do extra with everything I use as decorations. I love it when all my decorations are up and perfect. Those who see my house after I have put up all the decorations are definitely impressed. Here, I have a few incredible ideas for you to try out for decorating the outside of your house.

Pumpkin Cat Lights

These cats are quite easy to make. All you need are pumpkins. Use big pumpkins for the cats’ bodies, and smaller pumpkins for the heads. Paint over the pumpkins with some black paint. You can then carve in the cats’ eyes and add some paper ears. You can place a candle inside the cats’ heads so that the lights shine out through the eyes. You can place these by the doorsteps.

See through Creepy Figures

To make these figures, you can wrap some plastic foil around mannequin body parts. For example, you can use a mannequin leg. Wrap the foil until it makes a really thick layer around the leg. Then, cut open one side of the leg and gently remove the leg. Because the foil would have made a thick layer, it will still hold the shape of the leg. You can then hang the leg or any other body parts randomly around your yard.

Creepy Ghost Stands

These stands are made from wood and wire. On the wooden stands, place a wire shaped in a circular way. Then, place a piece of black cloth around the wire. After this, you can then place a white cloth to cove the black cloth completely. Wrap the white cloth around the rest of the stand so that it blends in. to complete the look, add some skeleton hands so that they poke out through the white cloth.

Wood Porch Pumpkins

This DIY involves making some pumpkins from wood. Paint over some wooden stamps with some orange paint. You can then decorate these self-made pumpkins with some ribbons. It is that simple.
