With Halloween a little more than a week away, there is still time to get in the spirit and take your outdoor décor up a notch. Check out these five ways to decorate your fence this fall that will take you from Halloween to autumn to Thanksgiving.
DIY fall-inspired garland.
One of the simplest ways to decorate your fence this fall is with garland. Whether it features vibrant autumn leaves or handmade bats, fall-inspired garland is a fun, easy and low-cost way to add something extra to your fence this season.
Spooktacular touches for Halloween.
Did you know you can use a string of white lights, little clear plastic cups and a black sharpie to make your own strand of ghost lights? Then you can hang your DIY ghost lights from your fence for an eerie glow around your pumpkins and mums.
Add black and orange lights, black cats, ghosts, goblins, skulls and other spooky décor for a fangtastic fall scene! And as Halloween creeps closer and closer, turn those pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns to illuminate your Halloween fence even more.
Pumpkins and other natural elements.
Pumpkins, gourds, acorns, oh my! It’s time to harvest fall’s natural bounty to craft spellbinding autumn backdrops. Bring in pops of color with mums and other annuals. Stack pumpkins of varying shapes, sizes and colors on bales of hay.
Don’t forget to throw in a scarecrow and dried corn stalks for additional hints of autumn.
Set birdhouses across the top of your fence.
Practical and pretty, birdhouses strategically placed across the top of your fence or on fence posts will naturally blend with other fall décor!
Wall décor, or sculptures, refers to a wide-range of handcrafted items that can be attached to a fence. Think outside the box to spruce up your fence this fall. Hang a seasonal wrought iron creation, like a large maple leaf, pumpkin or cornucopia.
Be reflective with a vintage or decorative mirror on display. Get creative and design a “through the looking glass” feel with old windows, for example.
