Gnomes are the most classic of all the garden decorations. Why not get them in on the holiday action this year?! A zombie gnome is a great way to get in the Halloween spirit. Plus, with the zombie craze that has everyone in it’s grasp, maybe you could leave him out all year and no one would bat an eye.  However, if gnomes just aren’t your thing there are plenty of other fantastic  garden props to get your home feeling a little creepy.

What better way to get your house screaming “spooky Halloween house” than with a bunch of bats seemingly swarming your front step? Not much, that’s what. These great bats are such an easy way to set the stage for a great trick-or-treating experience for any kid in the neighbourhood. If you’d rather decorate with bats, but not have to stick a bunch all over the walls there are plenty of  other options, too.

Do you live in one of those great neighbourhoods with tree lined streets?  I love those neighbourhoods. Why not take advantage of those trees and start the spooky experience at the street? This haunted tree set is one of the coolest things I’ve seen. There are a ton of other great  tree decorating props to choose from as well if a haunted forest just isn’t your thing.

Growing up, my brother wanted to set up one of those holographic ghosts using a mirror and pulley and all sorts of craziness. Back when I was a kid, we didn't have the cool   projection systems available like we do now. They have all sorts of projections now...from ghosts, to monsters to zombies; there’s a set for everything. I think it would be so great to play them against a window to create the illusion of ghosts roaming your haunted house. How spooky would that be?
