5 Non-Scary Outdoor Halloween Decorations

| | | | | |

Halloween doesn’t have to be scary, and these 5 outdoor ideas will show you how fun it can be to decorate for this holiday!

Do you decorate the exterior of your home for Halloween?

Gone are the days of simply carving the traditional face on a pumpkin to greet trick-or-treaters.  It seems that more and more people go all out to come up with the most creepy and frightening decorations that they can dream up.  While I get a big kick out of everyone’s fun creativity, I prefer to keep things on the non-scary side at my home.

Non-scary Halloween decorations doesn’t have to mean blah and boring though.  Here are 5 cool ideas to inspire you.

Lookie What I Did 

Incorporate fall cornstalks with Halloween decorations.  Once Halloween is over, you’ll still have fall decorations to carry you through to the Thanksgiving holiday.
