Halloween is just around the corner, and that means it's time to decorate and make your house the spookiest on the block. There are so many ways to decorate your home with reclaimed wood. At Vintage Harvest, we love a good DIY project and have tons of ideas on making your home stand out sustainably. By decorating for Halloween with reclaimed wood, you will not only be the most creative but also the most environmentally friendly!
Wood Candy Corn Yard Stakes
This one is easy to make! Just cut your wood in the shape of candy corn and paint a third in yellow, a third in orange, and a third in white. Attach a stake, and you now have a yard full of candy corn! This will let the neighborhood kids know that you are open for candy business on Halloween night.
Create Your Coffin
This DIY might take a little longer and is a bit more grimm. However, having a coffin outside of your door will show the trick or treaters that you are the spookiest house on the block. You can even put a fake skeleton instead of the coffin. This idea is a dark one, but it is very in tune with the Halloween spirit, and if you want to be a little scarier this year, this might be the trick.
Welcome Pumpkin Sign
Cut your wood in the shape of a pumpkin and paint "Welcome" across the center, and boom, you have a door sign. This idea is straightforward, but you can add your personal touch by adding whatever colors you want and painting family members' names. You can even paint spiders, bats, and cobwebs on it to make it more festive.
Whatever way you decide to decorate this year on Halloween, reclaimed wood is necessary for your materials. At Vintage Harvest, we have you covered and have plenty of wood kits you can choose from. Be safe this year, and try not to get too spooky. Happy Halloween!
