10 Spooky Halloween Decorating Ideas for your RV
Are you wondering, “how can I turn my RV or camper into a spookfest?” We’ve come up with some awesome ways to decorate your RV for Halloween that other campers will enjoy! And, you might just win the Best Halloween Decorations for your RV!
What would Halloween be without those emotionally distressed carved pumpkins? If you’re not going to carve your own, consider buying lightweight foam jack-o-lanterns that are already cutout with a lightbulb already for you to plug in?
Or, if you choose to carve your own real pumpkin for family halloween weekend at your campsite, light them with flameless candles that you can light with a remote or by a timer.
Light the way!
Halloween wouldn’t be as cool without lots of lights! Now, you can find lights of every color and shapes; in purple, orange, pinks and white. You can string them all along your RV roof, around the doors and windows using clear Command Hooks. You can also use orange rope lights to line the way to your door for the little goblins to find their way to your camper.
BLOGGER TIP: Consider not using strobe lights as they may affect campers who have neurological or sensory issues.
Cobwebs and Spiders
You’ve seen those cobwebs and spiders everywhere and they’re fairly cheap. You can string these across your windows also, using Command Hooks. They look really neat if you point a blacklight spot on them to make them glow and show the spiders!
Spooky Ghosts and Ghouls
Don’t look at these four realistic floating ghoul ghosts too long or they’ll become real and scare the bejeevers out of your trick or treaters. But they’re fun and quite festive. Don’t put them out until last minute to get them looking their best.
You can make your own ghosts that hang from trees or your RV buy blowing up a beach ball, threading some fishing line through the air intake valve and then threading it through the center of a sheet so it hangs over the ball. Then, decorate it with fierce looking eyes. Make a bunch of them!
You can make your own if you have the supplies but you can also buy four lightweight foam pre-made tombstones ready to set in your RV site. These are fun also if you light them up with a blacklight or red or colored spotlight for the ultimate scary effect.
Bones, Blood, and Body Parts
Graveyards are spooky cool but how about adding a few bloody body parts and heaps of bones to your tombstones? You can make them look like they are coming up from the ground or under tires or coming out of your car doors or trunk! Have some fun with them! Even the older kids will love them!
Rats and Rodents
No need to set rat traps for these little spooky rodents! This set of rats are hilarious but also kind of creepy. Place them near your tombstones, on your RV roof, on the picnic table or around your site. For a spooky effect, shine a spotlight under your motorhome or camper or near your steps. You never can have too many of these scary rodents.
Skeletons and Scaredy Cats
Include a boney cat or dog skeleton to your Halloween decorations! You can get a better night-time affect if you light them up with one of the spotlights earlier in this article! Set them up on the roof of your motorhome or in the window of your camper with a light behind. Or, how about to greet guests at your RV steps? They’ll surely catch the eyes of campers walking their dogs (or cats!)
So, there’s our 10 spooky Halloween decorating tips to bring out the spirits and scaredy cats of everyone! Have a little fun with it!
And, if you’re full-timers who may not want to cart them around or store them, simply donate the decorations to your local charity like hospitals, community centers and schools.
A last few notes
I highly recommend to never use real candles or flames in or around your RV. Be safe with anything that may ignite or be a fire hazard. Use lights prescribed only for their intent and according to manufacturer’s instruction. And never leave your RV unattended with any electric holiday lights.
If you wish to hang some Halloween decorations on trees, make sure you have permission from the Campground staff. And always remove any strings or attachments you may have used to hang them when Halloween is over. As we always say, “Leave no trace”; including remnants of your witches, ghosts and goblins!
