Halloween is like Christmas for DIYers with spooky tastes. If you are getting ready to make your entire house look perfectly haunted for Halloween season, don’t forget about your fence. It is, after all, the first thing that passersby and trick or treaters will see when they come by your home. Here are some tips and tricks you can use to give your fence that spooky scary splash of fun you crave.
Make Use Of Figures
There is no quicker way to decorate your fence than by hanging iconic fall and Halloween figures and characters on it. Things like bats, ghosts, classic horror monsters, and skeletons swaying on your fence in the chilly autumn breeze will make your Halloween decor complete.
Try Some Fence Post Decorations
Temporarily glue mini pumpkins on your fence posts for some charming autumnal curb appeal. You can use orange pumpkins, white pumpkins, or even alternate them. For a more terrifying twist, you can opt for plastic skulls or funeral urns. You can even choose to impale the pumpkins on spikes. While this makes for a chilling Halloween effect, it also leaves a terrifying mess the next morning.
Lights Make For Halloween Magic
String your fence with rows of seasonal fairy lights. Look for strings of lights emblazoned with things like moons, witches, jack-o-lanterns, and black cats. You can even opt for fluorescent decorations and a black light for a uniquely spooky effect. If you want to use candles, be sure to opt for fire safe battery operated ones rather than the real thing. Fire safety is important, especially on Halloween.
Ghouls clank chains to terrify the living, so putting them on your fence is an incredible and affordable touch to any Halloween decor. Plastic chains are purchasable by the yard in shades of black, metallic, and rust. Coordinating handcuffs or leg shackles are an optional yet amazing touch to any spooktacular home decor set up.
