Decorating Your Wrought Iron Fence For Halloween
a wrought iron fence surrounding your property, you can make use of it to create a spooky front yard look.
Many cemeteries are enclosed by a wrought iron fence. You can make your front lawn look like a cemetery, drawing crowds of onlookers on Halloween night during Trick Or Treating.
Decorating The Fence Itself
First use floss spiderwebs to decorate your iron fence. These can be purchased in the Halloween section of party, craft or home goods stores. Spread them between the spires, making your fencing look rather old. Carve a few pumpkins and leave them at the base of your fencing with small flashlights inside. You can use different colored bulbs to really give the pumpkins and eerie look.
Make a few creepy looking signs to hang from the spires of your iron fence. They can be old looking wooden signs with "Keep Out" or "Danger" written on them with red paint to give the look of blood. This will let people know that there is more to come when they walk through that gate.
Creating The Graveyard
Purchase a few fake tombstones from the same store you bought the webbing. Strategically place them where they will be seen from the street and while walking up the front sidewalk. You can use a mound of dirt around each stone to keep them in place. Use your spiderwebs again and drape over the corners of the tombstones
Place lighting near the stones so that they can been seen when it gets dark. You can use small portable floodlights with blue or green bulbs to give a really spooky look for your front lawn. If you would rather, use a flickering light around the scene. This is scary looking, especially if someone pops up from behind a stone!
Hide a compact disk player or mp3 player with speakers in the vicinity of your gravestones. You can purchase spooky music or sound effects to play, making the area even scarier.
