Since a single pumpkin naturally looks lonely and deserted, more decoration is needed. A Jack O'Lantern basically goes well with any fall decoration.

If it should be a little creepy, we have a few scary tips ready, of course.
Halloween ghosts: make garden decorations yourself
If you want to make a simple costume for Halloween, throw a bed sheet over your head and cut two holes in it. If you need a simple Halloween decoration for the garden, do it similarly.
- So that you don't have to disappear under the cloth yourself, put a stick in the garden and, if necessary, attach two more sticks as “arms” to the first.
- A styrofoam ball is put on the top of the largest stick as a "head".
- Now cover everything with cheesecloth and spray it with starch. Practical tip: Do not spray the lower part of the "body" so that it can float ghostly in the wind.
- If everything is nice and tight, you can attach the spirit to a branch with a cord and carefully remove the sticks.
Halloween decoration: make an outdoor skeleton
On Halloween, not only do the deceased walk in the form of ghosts on earth, the bodies of the dead come back to life and leave their graves. It would be practical if such a grave were right in your front yard on Halloween. Don't worry, you don't have to dig your garden! All you need is some skeletal parts. When the head, arms and legs are skillfully placed, it looks as if the skeleton is digging straight out of your garden.
