Halloween is coming up in about three weeks. If you haven’t started turning your yard into a spooky spectacle yet, there’s no time like the present. Here are some ideas for you to use to create the best Halloween fence in your neighborhood this year.
Use Halloween Icons
What do you think of when you think about the word Halloween? Bats, spiders, skeletons, witches, and pumpkins all come to mind. Use these classic images as the basis of your Halloween fence design. Try using some craft paint to give the ghastly ghoulies even more life to surprise and delight anyone who comes around trick or treating.
Decorate the Posts
Don’t leave your fence posts out of the fun. Take some small pumpkins and adorn them on your Halloween fence this year, especially if you can paint some fun faces on the pumpkins. Spray paint some pumpkins different colors, such as black and white, to stand out against the orange that you’ll see everywhere else. You can even stick a larger pumpkin on a finial spike on your fence, but if you do, exercise caution, because you’re going to need to clean up pumpkin guts the day after you put it up. It’s probably for the best if you wait until closer to Halloween to try this tip.
Let There Be Light
String lights aren’t just for Christmas anymore. The months from October to December might seem like one long holiday, but that doesn’t mean Halloween needs to feel less special. You can also use black lights to give everything an unearthly glow, especially after dark. For even more adventurous Halloween fences, trying using candles or lanterns – but only use the ones that need batteries. While using an actual flame lends a sense of authenticity, you don’t want to start a fire by accident.
Cover The Fence
The whole point of designing a Halloween fence is to make it stand out, right? You might be a tad confused by this advice, and we wouldn’t blame you: why would you cover your fence? Picket fences and wrought iron fences make the best fences to dress up for Halloween, but if you have a chain link fence or a vinyl fence, you can cover them with bedsheets to make them look like ghosts. You can also use cheesecloth cut to look like spiderwebs, especially if you don’t like how the sheets look when placed on your fence.
