One of the best ways to celebrate the day of ghosts, vampires and witches is decking out your landscaping with creative and scary Halloween decorations. Although Halloween is just around the corner, there is still plenty of time to get your house ready for a frighteningly good time.

If you are looking for new outdoor Halloween décor ideas that will lure your neighborhood trick-or-treaters while still staying on budget, these DIY Halloween decorations will have your home shining with creativity.

Solar Jack-O-Lantern

A Jack-O-Lantern is basically the universal symbol for Halloween. Pumpkin carving is a great tradition for both family and friends and is a must on the list of outdoor Halloween decorations. Easily take pumpkin carving to the next level with this simple but different twist by making a solar Jack-O-Lantern.

In the photo below, we simply got a medium-sized pumpkin, carved it and placed the top of a Gama Sonic Solar Garden Light at the top. Don’t forget to place the solar Jack-O-Lantern in the sunlight during the day!
