Use pumpkins in a variety of sizes and colors, the white ones make excellent ghoulish ghost faces. Carve Halloween graveyard scenes and more on them and of course the tried and true expressive faces of horror on them. Use hay bales to make them in stacks and levels. Put glowing candles inside to set off the dramatic looks or use vibrant eerie glow sticks in greens, reds and purples to add to the scare factor.
Turn your dreary everyday front yard into a tombstone filled yard of death. You can buy plastic or foam tombstones with eerily funny epitaphs already on them. Place them strategically around the yard and then use skeletons and bloody zombies to finish off the entire look you are going for. Play creepy soundtracks also to give the visiting goblins and ghouls a fright-mare.
Create a mummy’s tomb out of your yard and front porch. This is made easier with the use of life size mummies you can buy as well as everything else you will need to pull off the perfect mummy tomb. You can use spooky lit twigs and tree branches placed in faux stone urns to give even more dramatic effects to your whole Halloween settings. Use cardboard boxes of large appliances to spray paint gold and stencil Egyptian symbols on for even more additions.
