Try these eerie DIY outdoor Halloween decorations and frighten the entire neighborhood... Boo! 

 

Spooky welcome wreath

Make sure everyone near your home feels the terrifying festive vibe with a dark front door welcome wreath. Paint a wreath fully black and add some cardboard crows, pumpkins or any other decor that you like to the wreath. Finish the spooky look with a dark ribbon to hang the wreath.

Floating candles for your porch

When Halloween meets Harry Potter. Among our many DIY outdoor Halloween decorations in this post, this is one of my favorite. As a Harry Potter fan myself, being able to recreate the floating candles from the Great Hall of Hogwarts is a dream come true.

To make these floating candles to can hang on your porch or inside the house, you will need the following: paper towel rolls, paint, fishing string, your hot glue gun, and of course, small led candles. Take the paper rolls and make some cuts to achieve the effect of a candle that's been burning for a long time. Then, take your hot glue gun and start dripping it down the sides of the paper roll to recreate the wax falling from the candle. Once you are done, let it dry. Now, it is time to paint the candle white. To hang the candles from the ceiling, you need to poke 2 holes through the cardboard under the LED candle (because the string will hold the LED candle in place) and insert the fishing string through them. Finally, place the LED candles inside the paper roll. You can follow the step-by-step video tutorial for this DIY outdoor Halloween decorations here.

Cheesecloth ghosts

We have already seen how to make floating candles. Now you will learn how to make floating spirits to hang on your porch or to sit on the ground. Here's an easy tutorial using some cheesecloth, a balloon, black felt, fishing line (only if you are making the floating little fellas), and fabric stiffener.

Inflate a balloon the size you want the head of the ghost to be. Create a stand stacking cups or glasses to rest the balloon. Then, soak your piece of cheesecloth in the fabric stiffener and put it over the balloon. Let it dry. Once the fabric is dry, pop the balloon to reveal the shape of your ghost. Cut 2 pieces of black felt to make the eyes and glue them to your ghost. Finally, thread the fishing line through the top of the ghosts head, make a knot to secure it and hang it. Repeat this process to make as many ghosts as you like.

Jack-O'-Lantern Topiary for your Entryway

Give some ghostly greetings to your guests with this stacked pumpkin topiary DIY project. Go to your nearest store and search for lighted pumpkins (take as many as you would like to stack, although we think 5 is a good number). Also, get a wood dowel, a pot, flowers, soil, and spray paint of your color choice for the pumpkins. First, spray paint your pumpkins and the wood dowel. Once dry, drill holes in the pumpkins of the circumference of the dowel so you can stack the pumpkins. Plant the soil and flowers in the pot, then, put the dowel in it, and stack your pumpkins.
