More and more homeowners are getting the Halloween holiday spirit and will be spookifying their homes, inside and out. The National Retail Federation predicts that in 2018, total spending for Halloween is expected to reach $9 billion. Celebrants are planning to spend an average of $86.79 per capita, up from last year's $86.13, with more than 175 million Americans planning to partake in Halloween festivities.
Decorating home exteriors is a big part of that spending number. Inflatable spiders and dragons, talking witches and smoldering corpses in scary front yard graveyards are creeping up on home fronts all over the Hudson Valley. In that spirit, we've scoured the web and have some truly spooky ideas for your Halloween Home Decor!
The Spooky Grave Yard
These folks have turned their otherwise inviting home into a spookilly lit burial ground. No doubt some trick or treaters will have second thoughts entering there.
Here's a classic Flying Pumpkinhead, tastefully and frightfully wrought against the Halloween nighttime sky.
The Zombie House
Look out! Zombies! Zombies are good and scary, and this house seems to be undergoing an apocalypse of them. But they're just hungry, as anyone with a brain must know.
Creepy Old Lady House
Actually this is my mother in law's place. I just thought I'd throw her in the mix.
Slasher in the Shower
So scary! Good thing it's in the bathroom! This heart- attack inducing menace would be enough to put me off showers for a month!
The Candy Guillotine
Easy to make, funny to watch the candy-monsters when they come by.
Scary Gravestone Sign
I think I've actually seen this sign outside a few seller's homes.
Scary Clown House
What makes clowns so scary? Maybe it's that creepy smile, or the crazy hair and those over-sized shoes! And how DO they get so many of them in that little car? Suffice it to say clowns are scary.
AND NOW SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE SCARIEST, SPOOKIEST MOST FRIGHTENING HALLOWEEN HOUSE EVER!
So scary that nobody ever goes into these!
Happy Halloween, everybody. (Even you FSBOs.)
