Outdoor Halloween Decorations Buying Guide

Remember the days when Christmas was the only outside decorating event? Not so anymore: Homeowners have embraced a host of holidays, including Halloween, and a range of styles, from spooky to charming. Dive in at your own home with our guide to Halloween outdoor and yard decorations.

Types of Decorations

Types of Decorations

For some people, Halloween is a not-so-scary holiday, a time to embrace smiling pumpkins and witches that cast harmless spells. For other homeowners, this autumnal celebration calls for a scarefest, with a chance to enhance their outdoor spaces with ghoulish scenes and spine-chilling figures. Fortunately, there are Halloween outdoor and yard decorations that fit either style—and everything in between. As you begin to create your hair-raising—or whimsical—outdoor scenes, consider the various types, such as animatronics, inflatables, props, lights, faux pumpkins, wreaths, and fog machines. Then have a great time welcoming friends and family to autumn's celebration.

Animatronics

These lifelike creations—usually scary Halloween characters such as zombies, witches, and ghosts—typically have motion sensors that activate arms, legs, and other body parts, as well as trigger noise capabilities.

Inflatables

These oversize Halloween outdoor and yard decorations are most often more whimsical in nature—happy ghosts, smiling pumpkins, not-too-scary witches.

Product Features

Product Features

There are literally hundreds of different products within each category of Halloween outdoor and yard decorations. That's part of the fun—deciding what to add to your exterior spaces, what style you favor, and how extensive you want your Halloween decorating to be. But even within that range and variety of decorating types and products, there are certain product features that will affect how your Halloween elements look and work with your home. Those include materials the item is made from, its power source, and setup and takedown time. As you begin your search for Halloween outdoor and yard decorations—or if you're adding to your collection—review these product features to ensure you find what best suits your needs and wishes.

Materials

A variety of materials is used to create Halloween outdoor and yard decorations; their one commonality is that all should be able to withstand weather conditions, including cold, snow, and rain.

Power Source

If your Halloween outdoor and yard decorations have light, sound, or movement, they will be powered either with electricity or batteries. Make sure you understand what the power source is. If your decor requires electricity, make sure its cord and your source can easily connect.

Setup and Takedown Time

Most Halloween outdoor and yard decorations are easy to set up and take down: a faux pumpkin only needs a spot by the door; a wreath needs to be hung. But other items, such as inflatables and animatronics, may require more time and effort.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Nowadays, some homeowners invest nearly as much time and effort in their Halloween outdoor and yard decorations as they do at Christmastime. That investment means any items you're thinking about adding should be thoroughly vetted, to make sure they complement what you already have. In addition, pay special attention to purchase considerations including durability, cost, storage, and cleaning and care. Each will affect your enjoyment and use of the piece. Here's your guide to getting started on your very own, just-you collection of Halloween outdoor and yard decorations.

Durability

The complexity of creation and the material of Halloween outdoor and yard decorations will influence the longevity of the items. To ensure yours last as long as possible, take a good look at how they're put together and whether they will withstand your yard's conditions.

Cost

The more elaborate a Halloween outdoor and yard decoration, the more expensive it is likely to be. But if it is well made, the cost may also translate into a longer life for the piece.

Storage

Especially for very large Halloween outdoor and yard decorations, storage may be an issue. If the item deflates, you will have less of a problem storing it safely. Review your home's spaces to ensure you can accommodate items such as oversize animatronics.

Cleaning and Care

After spending time in the elements, Halloween outdoor and yard decorations will likely need cleaning. Understand what's appropriate for your pieces—a light dusting and vacuuming, for example, or a damp cloth—and take care of each item before you store it for the next season.
