How to outdoor decorations for halloween with Graveyard Ghost. When night falls, a cast of creepy characters can help turn your yard into a landscape that’s equally frightening and enchanting. As dusk sets in, these creatures of the night stir from their resting places, and the ghouls come out to play. Description of the atmosphere during the night of halloween.
Size eyes and mouth templates as needed to fit pumpkin, with stem as nose. Print, and trim excess paper around templates.
Cut Hole in Pumpkin
Cut a hole on 1 side of the pumpkin, large enough to fit a pole, with keyhole saw. (Pumpkin will sit atop pole with the stem facing out.)
Clean Inside of Pumpkin
Clean the inside of pumpkin with fleshing tool, removing seeds, pulp, and fibers.
Transfer Design Onto Pumpkin
Affix templates to pumpkin with masking tape. Using awl, transfer designs to pumpkin by poking holes around blackened areas of templates. Remove templates.
With miniature saw, carve eyes and mouth in pumpkin.
Paint all 3 poles black. Let dry.
Position 3-foot pole horizontally across 6-foot pole 1/4 of the way from top to make a cross (see A). Secure with zip ties arranged in an X shape across the intersection. With mallet, pound cross about 1 foot into the ground.
About 2 feet from side of cross, pound the 4-foot pole about 1 foot into the ground at a 45-degree angle away from 6-foot pole. (This will hold the ghost’s tail.)
Secure the midpoint of the strand of lights to the top point of cross with zip ties. Run lights down to intersection of poles; secure with zip ties.
Separate the 2 lengths of lights, running 1 side down each arm of crossbar; secure with zip ties. Drape both lengths to meet at intersection; secure with zip ties.
Drape both lengths of lights to the top of freestanding pole to form tail. (This is where an extension cord can be added.)
To fashion the ghosts’s body, wrap the shorter side of the 2-yard length of fabric loosely over crossbar to cover pole and lights; secure in place with safety pins. Gather lower half of fabric, and attach tail to freestanding pole; adjust fabric to cover lights, and secure with safety pins.
