Halloween Decorating Ideas for RVs

Just because you may be on the road during Halloween doesn’t mean you have to miss out on some of the fun. Part of the RV lifestyle is enjoying the holidays no matter where you are. If you are an Oklahoma RV owner, your Halloween plans don’t have to be elaborate to be enjoyable. Here are some ideas to make Halloween in your RV a memorable one.

Carve a pumpkin. Even if you haven’t done it for years, carving a pumpkin can be a lot of fun. It will bring back a flood of memories. Use a battery-powered light or glow stick inside to give it a spooky glow. You can even clean and boil the seeds in very salty water, and then dry them out for a savory snack. If you don’t want to go as far as carving a pumpkin, at least buy a few small ones for decorations in and around your RV. Pumpkins are an inexpensive way to add to the “spirit” of the holiday.

Buy some Halloween lights. You can find Halloween orange party lights at party and department stores. These can be strung around the awning of your RV or even around the edge. Use them around your pad or even on any nearby trees or shrubs. Halloween lights can add a festival and slightly spooky effect to the fall evenings.

Use Halloween colored items. Dollar type stores have a variety of items like table clothes, utensils, paper plates and cups in a variety of colors, including orange and black. They will even have items specifically designed for the holiday. These dollar stores can be a great resource for Halloween decorations on the cheap side.

Use Cornstalks and Indian corn. Many farmers’ markets will have dried corn and cornstalks available that you can easily turn into fall decorations.

Make a ghost or two. Pillow cases can make good small ghosts. Put a small pumpkin or other small round object in the pillow case to serve as the head. Use string to secure the pumpkin “head” inside the bottom of the pillow case. You can hang it from the top or give it a flying appearance by attaching both ends horizontally. Use a sheet and a larger round object if you want something more substantial.

Decorating can be a big part of Halloween in an RV. You can also find out if your campground has a trick or treat evening planned for the kids, or fall dance, or even some sort of spooky attraction nearby. Have a safe Halloween from all of us at Leisure Time RV!
