Halloween Front Door Decor

Who will you have welcoming trick-or-treaters this year from your front porch? Will it be a cackling witch with a poisoned apple, a creepy zombie or a grinning trio of jack-o-lanterns? Scary Halloween decorations will keep your house on the top of all the kiddies’ lists.Tip_Black cut-out bats

Plan Your Pumpkin Yard Décor 

Of course, there will always be a place on your front porch for your hand-carved pumpkin masterpieces, but also consider adding decorative pumpkins that can be added early on in the month and you won’t have to worry about how long they will stay fresh. Vintage pumpkins or a pumpkin topiary are a clever and festive way to welcome visitors.Tip_Halloween window boxes with pumpkins

Decorate With Yard Décor

Create a spine-tingling graveyard in your front yard with posable skeletons and broken tombstones. Don’t line the tombstones up in a straight line. Instead, stagger them around and make it look like it’s a really old cemetery with some of the gravestones tilted and broken. Pile some fresh dirt in front of a few of the gravestones and have skeletons coming out from their graves.Tip_Use Styrofoam to create homemade gravestones

You don’t want your house to be the dark one on the block. Use Halloween lighting to give your home an eerie glow that can be seen from the street. Try whimsical pumpkins, spooky globes, LED-lit pumpkins or cut-out lanterns to light your stairs and front porch. Want to decorate the inside of your home to be just as spooky as the outside?
