Decorating your home for Halloween often calls for thinking outside the box. One of the most unique and clever ideas for transforming your outdoor living space into the spookiest spot on the block is to utilize custom covers in your decoration scheme. From festive colors to hand-picked Halloween designs, the creative possibilities offered by outdoor covers are endless.
If you’re a fan of spooky ghosts, grinning pumpkins, and creepy crawlers, covers present the perfect canvas for bringing Halloween designs to life. Whether it’s a backyard chair cover or larger table covers, you can add a burst of festive flair to your outdoor lifestyle area with little effort on your end.
Before you get to customizing, take a minute to sit down and plan out which graphics you want to feature on your covers. If you are planning on picking multiple graphics, make sure they all fit into the same general design scheme. This includes sticking with a consistent color palette and artistic style across the board.
This Halloween season, don’t be afraid to add some bold, more unconventional colors to your collection of covers. Orange is a must for the holiday, but don’t neglect hues such as neon green, bright purple, classic black, and blood red for your Halloween themed outdoor lifestyle covers.
Similarly to how you chose your custom Halloween graphics, be sure to stick with a cohesive aesthetic for your color-coordinated covers. Some color combinations that are both aesthetically pleasing and perfectly creepy and worth utilizing this season include:
- Black and orange
- Red and black
- Neon green and purple
- Orange and yellow
- Black and purple
You can also utilize these aesthetic principles when using covers to decorate your outdoor lifestyle area for the upcoming holidays, from Thanksgiving to Christmas, Hanukkah, and beyond.
Help Your Haunted House
If you’re planning on putting together a homemade haunted house this Halloween, you’ll find some unexpected resources in the form of custom covers. In the DIY spirit of the season, you can utilize the covers already found in your backyard to help set the scene for the spookiest spectacle of the season.
For example, a cart cover can be used to hide a not-so-scary utility cart. From there, you can use the cover as a base for creepy DIY touches such as spiderwebs, fake rats or bugs, and homemade “poison” bottles. You can even place a small fog machine atop the covered cart for some elevated atmosphere.
Accessories of the Season
Halloween is one time of year where you’ll have more unique outdoor accessories dotting your lawn than ever. From fake tombstones to witch cauldrons and everything in between, there’s plenty of Halloween decorations that will need some protection from the unpredictable Fall weather.
Thankfully, a custom designed cover can provide all of the protection you’re looking for this Halloween season. No matter how unique the shape of each accessory, a bespoke cover will fit like a glove.
Your covers should be placed prior to the arrival of inclement weather and when performing routine yard maintenance such as leaf blowing or grass cutting.
And keep in mind that there’s no need to worry about covers sticking out like a sore thumb in your sea of Halloween decor. The design possibilities that come with custom covers means you can add spooky designs to even the most practical of covers.
What better way is there to add some flair to your Halloween designs than with some ghoulishly good wordplay? Halloween themed puns, quotes, and jokes are the perfect accompaniment to the graphics that emblazon your custom covers.
Take some time to sit down and research favorite Halloween sayings. You will want to stick with shorter phrases and pick a bold, legible font in order for it to be legible, even from afar. Need some inspiration? Here are a few Halloween quotes and quips to consider using:
- Creep it real!
- If you’ve got it, haunt it!
- Witch way to the candy?
- Eat, drink, and be scary!
- Happy howl-o-ween!
Remember to choose a font color that meshes with the overall aesthetic and doesn’t blend in to the color of the cover.
