Hanging up a Halloween flag or banner outside your home during the month of October is a really great way to let your neighbors and passer-byes know that your family is now in the Halloween spirit!

Halloween Do-It YourselfPlus, putting up a flag-pole and flag is so easy that everyone should do it and display seasonal flags year round! It only takes about five minutes and usually requires only a screw driver.

While we fly the Halloween Online flag year round, on the first day of October we hang up several flags as a way to announce to the world that we have moved into full fright mode.

Basically, all you need are three things. A flag pole holder, the pole and a flag. The pole and holder are available year round at most department, hardware and craft stores. Flags with Halloween designs on them are usually only available during the haunting season, but its easy to make your own flags from materials you can buy at your local fabric store.

Halloween do-it yourselfFirst you need to select a suitable location for mounting your flag pole holder. You'll want the flag to be visible to people passing your house, but it also must have a secure wall or board to attach the flag pole holder to.

This can be the side of your house, right next to your front door, a fence post or you could install a 4"x4"x8' board in the ground to act as a flag pole post. While you should always follow the instructions that come with the flag pole holder, its usually as simple as placing the holder against the surface it will be attached to, then screwing it into place.

Once the holder has been installed in it's chosen place, you slide the flag over the pole, then slip the pole into the holder and tighten the holding screw. That's it!

Tip - We have a solar light on the top of our year-round flag pole. Every October we place a plastic pumpkin pail, that we have cut the bottom out of, over the light fixture, so that it glows all night long.
