If you are one of those individuals who bask in the glory of having the best and most creatively-decorated yard in the neighborhood year after year, then you know that October (more specifically, Halloween) officially marks the beginning of outdoor holiday décor season.

For those serious holiday décor fanatics out there wanting to take their craft to the next level, we’re ready to help…Home Depot is THE place for your Halloween and holiday yard décor!

Start with the basics by defining a framework for your designated outdoor space. Halloween-themed path lights illuminate your front walkway and/or stairs quite efficiently, offering a flame-free and smoke-free decorative touch.

Threading string lights throughout trees and shrubs or lining them along windowpanes not only adds definition to your holiday landscape, but also allows guests and trick-or-treaters to find their way to your front door easily. 

Oversized inflatables and battery-operated Halloween pillar candles provide a fun, celebratory feel to your yard or deck area(s). Additionally, if you’re looking for a few decorative items that transcend Halloween into the rest of fall, holiday flags and/or mailbox covers are a great supplement to your overall yardscape.

Design your outdoor setting to be scary, ghoulish or even friendly, based on your own preference or that of your children (if you have little goblins).  A life-sized witch or scarecrow figurine sitting on your front porch swing will set the mood, while spider webs and spooky sound effects round out a haunted house (and yard) theme perfectly.

The final effect for your porch, patio or deck area that will put your outdoor yardscape over the top is a fog machine. Without this last element, your spooky Halloween setup is just not complete!
