Halloween is just right around the corner, which means it’s time to break out the cobwebs, plastic mummies, and Styrofoam tombstones. If your deck faces the front of the home or you’re planning a party on the deck, then “spook-ify” your property with these fun Halloween deck decorations.
Halloween Deck Décor Ideas
No Halloween makeover is complete without pumpkins. Sure, you can place a jack-o-lantern on the side of the deck steps. Here’s another idea, though: consider stacking a small pile of pumpkins of various sizes on one corner of the deck. Create a makeshift section using hay and fire logs as a border. Aside from pumpkins, you can also use gourds and Indian corn. This décor is also great for November, so no need to take it down after Halloween.
Wreaths aren’t just for Christmas. Hang a wreath on the railings or on the fence. A Halloween wreath comes in an assortment of styles. These include a typical wreath painted orange and black, a wreath with a plastic crow resting on top, a wreath covered in cobwebs and spiders, and so on.
Hang a few holographic portraits on the railing. These are images that change depending on the viewing angle. The image changes as your guest moves from one side of the picture to the other. Halloween variants typically include images of normal people that transform into ghoulish figures.
Decorate the patio furniture. Use black and orange cushions for the seating. Drape a cloth of the same colors over the table. You can also place a jack-o-lantern on the center of the table or a mini black cauldron. With the latter, there are varieties that come with a fogger that simulates smoke coming out of the pot.
Refine the Deck Before Decorating the Area
Contact Allied Construction to repair any damages on your deck. If you plan to have multiple guests over this Halloween, be sure the deck is in good condition. Too much traffic on a worn deck can present a safety hazard. With fall in full swing, follow these Halloween deck decoration ideas and other tips for ghoulish curb appeal.
