This step by step diy woodworking project is about outdoor Halloween decorating ideas. If you want to enhance the look of your garden for the coming Halloween, you should take a look over the following decorating ideas. Starting with the wooden lantern up to the graveyard fence, there are many options to choose from. Make sure you take a look over the rest of plans to see alternatives and more projects for your garden.
When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.
