How to Decorate Your Yard for Halloween

October 16, 2019 in Texas Self Storage


Whether you’re obsessed with Halloween or just want to prepare your home for the year’s spookiest holiday, Halloween decorations are an important part of the festivities in Houston, TX. This year, stand out from the crowd without crowding your living space. At Hwy 6 Self Storage, we can help with tips for everything from creative decor ideas to proper Halloween storage.

Go Big

Large decorations create maximum impact. DIY spiders crafted from filled trash bags and PVC pipes make a creepy first impression. Disassemble and place in self storage or your garage to use again the following year. Pressed for time? Opt for a jumbo inflatable pumpkin or witch with cauldron. For those who don’t mind investing a little more time and money, a skeleton vignette can be equal parts fun and spooky. Create an elaborate graveyard scene, or pair large and small skeletons for a ghoulishly cute “family” scene. Make no bones about it; large-scale Halloween decorations are sure to get attention from passersby.

Ghosts and Monsters, Oh, My!

If you’re looking for full-on scares, you can’t miss with horror movie characters. Lifelike versions of Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, or Michael Myers will terrify trick-or-treaters and party guests alike. Or, go for classic scares with Dracula or Frankenstein’s monster. You don’t have to be a movie fan to be frightened by ghosts, and these are some of the easiest “monsters” to re-create. From simple sheets fastened to sports balls to realistically shaped chicken-wire figures, scare up some fun with a lawn full of ghostly images. A foam head topped with cheesecloth creates a particularly eerie look.

Halloween-Ready Storage

Whether your Halloween decor is tastefully simple or your yard could pass for the set of a horror film, you’ll need a place to stash those frightfully fun seasonal items. Halloween storage in Houston, TX, can come in the form of self storage or a small section of your basement or attic. Keep your decorations intact by doing any necessary cleanup work before putting them away. Wipe down fabrics, and disassemble items with parts. Place decorations in labelled boxes, putting the largest containers on the bottom of the stack for stability.
