Graveyards and Halloween go together almost as well as milk and cookies. Every scary movie needs a spooky walk through a creepy cemetery. You can recreate that feeling for your trick or treaters by turning your yard into a burial ground for the undead. There are numerous prop kits that include tombstones, fences, and ghouls. Spread around a few skeletons and skulls and the kids will love your house. The best thing about graveyard displays is that they are just like real cemeteries. They are creepy in the daytime, but become scary at night.

This 31 piece kit will help you begin turning your yard into a bone yard! These pieces are made to be displayed outdoors. Buy now because these will become hard to find.

This ghost is designed to hover around outside in your graveyard. Not to worry, he is just visiting some friends for the holidays and won't be haunting you year-round.


Another popular feature that will enhance your display is to have a ghastly ghoul rising from his grave. These props have the undead appearing to be climbing out of the ground. Some displays actually have moving features to enhance the realism factor. You can also have a ghost or two “hanging around” visiting their friends at the bone yard.

This ghoul is just coming to get some candy. The set includes two rubber hands and a rubber skull, ensuring that the zombie will be coming out of his grave for years to come as part of your outside display.
