Outdoor Wolf

A spooky silhouette lends an ominous vibe to your porch or front-of-house walkway. When night falls, you'll half expect these cut-outs to let out a resounding howl.

Our outdoor wolf silhouettes will haunt your Halloween—or at least give your front yard some spooky energy. Make several in various positions (sitting, pacing, howling at the moon) to create your very own den, arranging them strategically. A wood flat will keep any standalone wolves upright; a sandbag holds them there, even if the wind starts blowing on a cool October night. Don't leave them out in the cold for long, though: This craft is not be waterproof, so display it on Halloween night or for a party only, and then store it until next year. Looking for more outdoor Halloween decorating inspiration? We have you covered—and consider a few indoor décor accents, as well, for good measure.
