10 Scary Yard Decorations for Halloween
Give your home's facade a haunted makeover with these truly terrifying Halloween yard decorations.
Animated Hanging Grim Reaper
Fear the reaper—especially when he’s hanging out on your front porch! This life-sized, five-foot grim reaper, who has busted through his shackles, will stop house guests dead in their tracks when he lets out a sinister screech or a creepy cackle while gesturing with his bony hands.
RIP Graveyard Tombstones
Invite trick-or-treaters to enter through the cemetery. These lightweight foam tombstones look so realistic, it’s scary. These Halloween yard decorations come in a pack of four—including “engraved” skeletons and epitaphs—with metal stakes for slaying vampires…um, we mean securing the tombstones into the ground!
Zombie Garden Statue
You’ve heard of The Walking Dead, but do you know about the crawling undead? This ravenous stone/resin zombie is emerging from your front lawn in search of brains to feast on, but he’ll settle for the terrified reactions he elicits when he casts his menacing gaze on passersby.
A caterpillar in its cocoon is preparing to become a butterfly, but this cobweb-wrapped dead body is just preparing to scare the bejeezus out of your neighbors. The 7-foot corpse comes with hooks for hanging from an awning, a tree branch, or any other spot that can support less than a pound.
Realistic Hairy Rats
Usually, you want to get rid of rats around your home, but for Halloween a set of fake furry rodents can add a nice touch to your festive decor. With straggly hair these little guys can go anywhere in your house or on the front porch.
Arachnophobia is an understatement when it comes to a 6-1/2-foot spider on your front lawn. This hairy beast can’t be stopped—it comes with secure attachments, so it can even survive strong wind and rain. It’s very adjustable, too; twist it into a different position each day to really freak people out.
Giant Bloody Window Posters
This 2-piece plastic mural broadcasts ominous warnings to onlookers through an obscured window with bloody silhouettes pressed up against the glass.
It’s just a tree swing blowing in the breeze on a crispy fall night, or is it? This Halloween decoration gives your otherwise fun, inviting yard a creepy element that’s sure to make passers-by do a double take.
Here’s everything you need to know about tree swings.
Tree Ghost with LED Flashing Eyes
Enlist the trees on your property to scare the wits out of everyone who walks by. A plastic face—camouflaged to look like bark—adheres to the tree trunk and uses 2 AA batteries to make the red LED eyes light up. Curb appeal never looked this eerie.
Zombie Garden Gnome
This evil little creature with light-up eyes isn’t your mother’s garden gnome. Like a pint-sized extra from Night of the Living Dead, he’s a flesh-eating version of the classic lawn ornament—so watch your ankles!
