5 Steps to a Spooky Halloween Front Porch
3. Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins – can you ever have too many? I think not! While not spooky on their own, they are a great way to add festive color to a Halloween porch. Pumpkins can be expensive so shop around for the best deals. I found a variety of small striped pumpkins at our local grocery store.
If you have planters on your porch, adding some pumpkins can help brighten them after the summer blooms have faded. I scattered small decorative pumpkins around the top and larger ones at the base.
Your pumpkins don’t have to be real either! I used a few brightly colored pumpkin floral picks from Hobby Lobby to add some fall color to my wall planters. Jack-o-lanterns would also be an awesome addition and I’m a big fan of the carved faux pumpkins with an LED candle inside – no rotting in the Texas heat!
4. Bring some indoors outside – shop your house for pieces that can temporarily move outdoors for Halloween. This works especially well if you have a covered front porch that is protected a bit from the elements! For instance I swapped out the pillows on our bench for a few black and white pillows I stole from other rooms in our house. I particularly love the bold black and white stripes on this pillow – it is outdoor fabric too!
Halloween party decor can work outside as well. I thought this Trick or Treat banner would look cute draped on our rocking chair.
5. Don’t forget the front door – A festive wreath can go a long way to making your porch Halloween ready. Switching up the doormat for the holidays is also an unexpected touch. Check out my party fan Halloween wreath and BOO mat tutorials to see how you can make your own.
One last surprise on front porch – once you get up to the door you’ll find these cute glittery spiders crawling up it!
I hope you’ve enjoyed our Halloween front porch reveal and are inspired to add a little more spookiness and fun to your own!
