You'll give your neighbors a good fright!
The only thing that's almost as fun as dressing in a Halloween costume is decorating the outside of your house for the holiday. Unlike those other holidays that tend to draw in the same old crowd (that is, your family and loved ones), Halloween is the rare tradition that brings new people to your door. That means it's time to shine for the whole neighborhood by busting out the over-the-top decorations that show your Halloween spirit and give your trick-or-treaters something to smile about (or cower in fear of) as they step up to your doorstep on the spookiest night of the year.
When it comes to Halloween, there are several ways to decorate in style. You have your standard cobwebs and jack-o-lanterns, sure. But why stop there? Whether you want to go for the full haunted house experience, give your front yard a cemetery aesthetic with tombstones and ghosts, cover your stoop in fake blood, emulate a classic Halloween movie theme, or just go wild with an array of frightening window and door decor, this list is certain to give you all the Halloween decoration ideas you need to have the spookiest, coolest house on the block.
Pro tip: Once you know how you want to decorate, be sure to include a mix of store-bought and DIY decor. It'll help your house stand out, and it gives you a reason to get the kids involved in making Halloween crafts.
