Three Tricks for Halloween Deck Decoration
Halloween is quickly approaching and we know that this is a fun holiday for many across the New England area. Those neighborhood decorations often delight children of all ages. Don’t miss the opportunity to incorporate your deck into the excitement. Here are the best tricks for giving passersby a treat to look at.
One of the best ways to utilize a deck, covered or not, is by incorporating lights throughout the space. Not only is this an awesome decorating tip, but it also gives increased safety to light up the walk for children out trick-or-treating. Bistro lights can be used in a variety of ways and even on holidays. Using a combination of colors, styles, and types will be sure to give your home frightfully interesting curb appeal this Halloween. Lights are an importation deck decoration for many holidays and Halloween is no different. Following the proper safety measures while using them is always important though. We recommend taping down any extension cords with painters tape to alleviate any trip hazards. Don’t forget your traditional jack-o-lantern or pumpkins that are a great addition to any deck this time of year.
There are plenty of spooky spiderwebs, ghosts, witches, and creepy crawlers you can buy to up the scare factor on your deck. Especially if you have a covered deck, your options are nearly endless for decorations and themes. You can use sections of your deck for certain themes and incorporate them throughout your entire outdoor living space. Remember though that these decorations need to be checked for safety. Spiderwebs are highly flammable and should only be placed in spots away from vents and other warm lights. Decorating safely is the best way you can enjoy your Halloween festivities.
