Halloween Yard Decorations

Now that Halloween is upon us, why not put those flower beds to good use? It’s time to dress your front yard up for the Fall. Here are some tips to make your home look wonderful, even when the weather may not be.

Leaves of Many Colors

Fallen foliage is a perfect fertilizer to help keep your yard and flower beds in perfect growing condition for the spring when it’s time to start planting flowers and such again. They also make a great base for your Halloween decorations.

Rake all those leaves that have fallen from the trees in September and early October up.

Put them in black or orange garbage bags to prop up throughout your yard and beds. You can purchase ones with jack-o-lantern faces already on them.


Who says flowers are only for the spring and summer months? Here are some flowers that will make it through the autumn months. These flowers are hardier than their spring and summer counterparts and will last a lot longer too.

  • Chrysanthemums
  • Joe Pye Weed
  • Chelone (also known as Turtleheads)


Even vegetables have their place in your Halloween yard decor. Now is the perfect time to pick out gourds, squash, and pumpkins from your garden or farm market.

Not only are they decorative, but you can eat the squash, carve the pumpkins, or make pie too, especially in time for Thanksgiving!

Some people like to give their chickens a pumpkin to crave! Just scrap a little of the outer skin – in a jack o'lantern face maybe. Then let your chickens to the rest of the work!

For those who live in the country and like to attract wildlife, deer enjoy pumpkins after the season as well, they might enjoy them before Halloween too. We were woken up one year by the deer knocking them off our steps and enjoying them.

Bird Feeders Adorned with Black Crows

Crows for your garden and flower bed. Add in some pumpkins, and some tombstones and you'll be Halloween-ready!

Pumpkin Arrangements

Using hay bales, create your own pumpkin and scarecrow scene or village. And bonus, the hay will come in handy through the winter for your coops.

Tree branches and their fallen limbs are frequently used by Halloween aficionados to create skeleton characters.

It’s Halloween! Have a yard that will be the envy of the neighborhood this year. You don’t need to spend a fortune to make it happen when you use these ideas along with a little creativity of your own. Make sure to involve your family in the fun, this is how you make memories together.
