1. Wrap the skeleton decoration in the net
Wrap the skeleton in spider webs to show that this spider’s prey cannot be avoided. Secure it by attaching it to a metal garden hook (from a home furnishings store) and pulling out the clear tabletop to make it comfortable for its eternal rest. Stretch long stretches of cobweb across his den and throughout the yard so visitors know they must be very careful. Complete the haunted house illusion by hanging a giant black spider on prey number one. Then run for your life! For more creepy sliders.
2. Create a dark magic witch scene
Welcome to the witch’s den! To create this haunted house, start by placing the animatronic witch in a spot where she has enough room to lunge! Next, it’s easy to create a bubble mixture that will emit creepy smoke. Start the recipe by placing dry ice in soup cans and then pouring nearly boiling water over them. Place these jars in a cauldron and decorate the brew with a mixture of your favorite leaves, bones, and critters. Then create a spiritual tree to give the witch a strange friend. For a final touch, create a bone chime for some gruesome atmosphere! For a detailed look at our setup.
3. Let the subtle man frighten deceitful deceivers!
Imagine this Halloween animatronic we dubbed “Slender Man,” looming over everyone at eight feet with unnaturally long arms swinging and eerie whispering sounds in full effect. Now imagine how it is illuminated by a flash in your yard, hidden behind trees or bushes. First answer from cunning? If he is not moving in the opposite direction, it is because they are too excited to move. Decorate your gravestones with skulls and an owl!
while the owl gives a little (after) life.
4.hid bodies under gravestones and fresh dirt
Transform your yard into a realistic scene that scares people to death! (Luckily for you, you don’t have to move the bodies too far.) Choose a set of realistic, frightening bone gravestones. Make the scene really ominous by adding fresh spilled dirt to the graveyard in front of each grave. Keep dead bodies safe by installing eerie graveyard fences around the perimeter of your yard. Your home is going to have dire consequences this year!
5. Use black gauze to reveal the ghosts of your graveyard
Use black gauze to scare fences, railings, and stairs. Cover with black transparent gauze material to add a nice effect here, anywhere, anywhere. Use different parts of ghosts and reapers of different sizes to ensure that there are many tormenting spirits in your graveyard.
6. Create a skeletal poker game
Five cards play, graveyard rules! Grab a table and cover it with casino green, then set up skeletons and ghosts so they can mingle and sort! (At least you know they don’t hide aces in their sleeves!) You can use skeletons to create all kinds of funny scenes. There are no bones; everyday life is much funnier when depicted using Halloween skeletons.
7. Get out of your porch with the evil climbers!
Weave the web of fear with cobwebs and giant arachnids! Create a crawl environment for giant spiders by spreading elastic webs from one side of the porch to the other. The giant glowing spider transforms into something even more terrifying at night when its evil red eyes glow. Add smaller spiders to the scene for extra spookiness.
8. Clown with a creepy wreath!
Let arriving guests step up to this carnival-themed wreath with a spooky twist. You will need a wreath, a roll of lottery tickets, fake blood, mini skeletons, and clown accessories. Cover tickets with wreath and sprinkle with fake blood. Get creative with clown noses and an oversized bow tie, then place a couple of creepy skeletons in the center to smile at guests as they walk in.
9. Pose Funny Skeleton
Yard work never ends – even for the dead! Tickle their funny bones with skeletal scenes in your backyard. This skeleton guy works really hard and his best friend is on his heels. Wait until you see what he is dragging in his car!
