How to decorate your yard in Halloween lights
We’ve been giving you advice on how to decorate your yard for Halloween for quite some time, but not how to use lights to your advantage. There’s many ways that you can use lights to make your yard be at its spookiest but we’ll be talking about how you can take it to the next level. Keep reading to check out our tips on a haunting glow.
Your first step is to buy the best light of all which is a black light. This is one of the best things that you can do to spruce up your yard for the holiday because it’s interactive with every trick-or-treater that comes walking to your front door. Their costumes instantly have an eerie glow about them and it makes a fun experience. To take it to the next level, buy some glow in the dark paint and have it splattered over various objects in your front yard. Shine the black light on them and it’ll give the appearance of fake blood on certain items. The best trick to use this on is a tombstone; it’ll almost be as if a fresh corpse has slowly risen from the grave and is wandering your yard. Make sure that you stick with outdoor Halloween lights too so you won’t worry about any confusion with any normal lights you have.
A ghostly spectacle
The next trick is something that my dad uses every year and that’s having a rotating light ball in front of our yard. What our family loves about these is the balls normally come with different filters that you can place over the lights so there will be different patterns that come out of the light. We have it placed in our front yard so the lights will be running across our house and the filter we normally stick with on for Halloween is a ghost filter. Place the light behind a tombstone in your front yard to hide the source and it’ll be as if there are ghosts rising from the graves you have in front of your yard!
These are just a few quick and simple ideas on how to use lights and Halloween decorations to your advantage. If you make your house the spookiest on the block, you’ll have hoards of trick-or-treaters knocking on your door begging for candy. Trust us, it’ll be worth it to not have that many left overs to worry about!
Stay safe and have a Happy Halloween!
