Halloween is right around the corner. You come to realize that you have yet to decorate your exterior for the occasion, wondering if all hope is lost. The good news is that there are fast ways to decorate your exterior and even your rain gutters for Halloween. Consider some of the following creepy (and not so creepy) ideas:
1. Get a Gutter Ghost
Give your gutters and seamless gutters a creepy twist with a gutter ghost. The example below is from Grandin Road, but you can find these at different seasonal Halloween stores, department stores, and online.
The concept of a gutter ghost is simple. You take a pre-made cloth ghost and clip it onto your gutters. The length will likely reach the grass. It blows in the wind to give a creepy vibe during Halloween night.
2. Go for a Gutter Reaper
Sharing the same concept as a gutter ghost, a gutter reaper is another option to hang from your gutters. It’s a pre-made cloth with a reaper’s face that dangles from rain gutters. This specific product below is found on Amazon.
3. Hang Halloween Icicle Lights
Who says icicle lights are only used at Christmas? Another idea is to deck-out your gutters with icicle lights in colors like purple, orange, or neon green.
Mixed with purple and orange, you can buy these icicle lights at Wayfair and other department stores.
4. Giant Gutter Cobweb
Giant fake cobwebs are a popular option for sprucing up your exterior. These items can be attached to your gutters or roof, depending on the look you’re going for.
Once attached, the spider web flares out when it reaches the ground. You can further add scary details to your gutter cobwebs by placing fake spiders on it. You can also put fake spiders on your roof or porch.
Use Caution when Decorating
These ideas require you to climb up on your ladder to reach your rain gutters or roof. Please be sure you wear non-slip traction shoes and have someone hold the ladder steady if you plan to use these ideas.
