Halloween Front Porch

Hi Everyone! The kids and I have been gearing up for Halloween around the house this month! All who dare enter will find bats, crows, rats, spiders (oh so many spiders!), ghosts, skeletons and even a little Halloween village we put together.

Today, I wanted to show you how we decorated the front porch to get ready for Halloween night!

Halloween-Front-Porch-Brick-ColonialMy kids like a little spooky but nothing really scary. I personally think the scariest thing out here is our overgrown landscaping…let’s just say it is not my forte.

I began by putting out our fall wreath from last year with a wooden jack-o-lantern in the middle. This year, I decorated our pink front door with the bat silhouettes that my mom made for me last year (see how I used them then here), and surrounded the door with burlap “Happy Halloween” ribbon.

My mom and I made the ghost family together when Owen was a baby, and she added a new one for Violet last year. You can find the tutorial here.

We have a couple of vintage melted plastic popcorn decorations hanging in the window, similar to these. I found them at the Goodwill last year.

I did purchase some candy corn lights this year and put them around our lamppost.

Since taking these photos, we’ve added a few more spooky touches around, so if I find the time to take more pics soon, I will share them in a Halloween home tour post!

Hope you are enjoying a lovely fall!

Till next time…
