20 Simple but Effective Halloween Front Porch Ideas

The most frightful night of the year is almost here and there’s still time to get your front porch decorated for the holiday. You may not want to, or have the time to invest long hours putting together a big, beautiful Halloween décor theme for your front porch, but you don’t have to. You can put together a Halloween display that beautiful and festive, and will let all who sees it, know that you are in the spirit of the holiday. If you need some fresh ideas for your front porch, or this is your first time creating Halloween decorations for your front porch, we have some ideas and tips that can get you started.

Halloween is about creating a vision of everything frightful, spooky, and eerie. You can create this feeling with things like skeletons, spiders, spider webs, jack-o-lanterns, ghosts and goblins, witches and black cats. If you don’t want to go all-out-spooky, you can create less ghoulish themes that are just as festive and Halloween spirited.

Bales of hay are often used to create Halloween displays on front porches. Stacking a few bales of hay on the front porch with pumpkins and other colorful gourds placed at different levels on and around the bales, gives height and depth to your decoration. Prop a scarecrow on the top bale to add more fall festiveness to your display. For more dramatic affect, scatter dead leaves around the display, to add a sense of eeriness to your design.

Cob webs are a way to create an old, spooky look to your porch. Fake webbing can be bought at any store that sells Halloween décor, and you can string it up around your porch utilizing the different areas of your home and porch – the windows, pillars, awning, and railings. Fake spiders sitting in the webbing will give it a macabre, eeriness appeal.

For a creative way to use pumpkins in a front porch, Halloween display, try your hand at creating some black cats with different sized pumpkins and painting them black. A larger pumpkin for the base, a smaller one for a head and cut-out kitty eyes that light up at night.
