I can’t believe Halloween is just around the corner! The year seems to be flying by! My kids are a little extra excited this year because our porch is finally out of construction zone and can be officially decorated. It’s been in various stages of a complete remodel since we bought the house, so when I was walking through Meijer the other day and ran across some adorable decor I knew it was time to decorate our Halloween Front Porch!
I’m not big on scary things, so when picking out decor I naturally found all the cute things! (Though there is plenty of scary options too if you aren’t as easily scared as I am)!! The very first thing I put in my basket though was all these mums! I absolutely adore fresh flowers on the porch and these are perfect for transitioning right into Fall and Thanksgiving!
How to Decorate a Halloween Front Porch
- Spider Webbing
- Battery Operated Lights
- Large Hanging Spider
- Plug-in Jack-o-lantern
- Welcome Rug
Let’s dive into how I decorated our door! I started off with spider webbing and used command strips meant for Christmas Lights to clip the webbing in to place. Then I added an adorable spider garland to the top of my door for some depth. There’s also some super cute little battery operated ghost lights that I used across the top of my door trim that really highlights the garland at night. I love that they have a timer so your batteries don’t run out instantly!
The wreath was the first thing I saw that kind of started my theme of spiders. Like I mentioned, I’m a wimp when it comes to horror films, but I can do cute Halloween for sure, and this wreath was the perfect addition to our door. Fun, with a hint of cute scary ;).
The mums really make this whole space in my opinion. Meijer had several options available. The bigger ones come already in a decorative planter, and then I grabbed a few smaller ones to replant.
The best part about using mums in your Halloween Decor is that they transition perfectly into your regular Fall decor!
Decorative Accents for Halloween Front Porch
Once all my Halloween Decor and Mums were in place I mixed in a few battery operated lanterns for some glowing light. The plug-in Jack-O-Lantern is perfect since real carved pumpkins can start to rot before we make it to Halloween. This way I can have my smiling pumpkin all through October. We will carve some with our kids as it gets a little closer to Halloween and add them to the bottom of our steps for all the kids walking through the neighborhood!
Obviously you can’t have a Halloween Porch without pumpkins and I bought plenty of them. I love having real pumpkins on my porch throughout Fall and the traditional orange and white really provide a pop of color to any Halloween Porch! I bought varying sizes and stacked them on my steps in between our plants mums!
Halloween Craft Idea
While we are talking about porches, I have an adorable little craft I wanted to share with you. I found these super fun “You’ve Been Booed” kits at Meijer and just had to get them. I thought it would be a fun thing for the kids to do, especially since we are a little unsure of how Halloween is going to look this year in regards to trick or treating.
Essentially you just pack a gift bag full of some Halloween Candy, pencils, etc and then leave it on a friend or neighbors porch, knock, and run away. Inside the bag is some exciting treats and information on how to keep the fun going throughout the season!
