Halloween Doormat

Halloween Entryway Sign

Halloween entryway signs are a great way to show off your holiday spirit! You can find these signs at most stores that sell Halloween decorations. If you want to get creative, you can make your sign using a piece of black foam board and some white vinyl letters.

You can also buy customized Halloween entryway signs, such as one with pumpkin characters or ghosts. These signs are a great way to welcome trick-or-treaters to your home!

Halloween Party Banner

Party banners always get people in the mood for fun, so why not put one up for your Halloween party? To make one, all you need is some black construction paper, a white pen, and some string. Cut out triangles of different sizes from the black construction paper and write “Happy Halloween” or other spooky sayings on them in white. Hang them up on your porch with some string, and you’re all set!

You can also buy Halloween party banners if time is not on your side. You can find some great ones online or at your local party store.

Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkin Lamp

The Jack-o-lantern pumpkin lamp will surely be a spooky addition to your Halloween porch decorations. Carve a scary face into a white pumpkin and place a light inside. You can even add some fake spiderwebs to make it extra creepy.

If you want to go all out, you can create a whole scene with different-sized pumpkins. Arrange them from largest to smallest and have them all lit with different colored lights. This will create a genuinely eerie effect that your guests will love.

You can also buy a custom light-up jack o lantern pumpkin lamp for Halloween. It’s the perfect way to add some extra spookiness to your home.

A Pair Of Witch Shoes

Witch shoes are a must for any spooky porch display! Fill them with candy or small toys and place them near the door for trick-or-treaters to find. You can even add a sign that says, “Take one if you dare!”

For an extra touch, try painting the shoes in bright Halloween colors. Orange and black are always good choices, but you can get creative and use green, purple, or red. Ensure the paint is durable and won’t come off on kids’ clothes.

Cauldron Of Bats 

Bats are a Halloween icon, so why not add a cauldron full of them to your porch décor? You can purchase a pre-made decoration or make your own out of black construction paper. Cut out bats of different sizes and glue them to the inside of a plastic cauldron. If you want to take it a step further, you can add red LED lights inside the cauldron to make it look like the bats are flying.

Halloween Giant Spiderweb

This is probably one of the most popular porch decorations for Halloween. You can buy a giant spiderweb or make your own out of black yarn. Then, all you need to do is find a place to put it up. We suggest draping it over your porch railing or doorway. You can also add a few plastic spiders to make it look more realistic.

If you want to go all out, you can also buy some life-size spiders to put around your spiderweb. These are usually foam or rubber and can be found at most Halloween stores. Ensure you put them away after Halloween, so you don’t scare your guests when they come over!

Stacked Pumpkin Topiary

If you’re looking for a way to take your pumpkin display to the next level, try making a pumpkin topiary. This festive decoration is perfect for adding a touch of Halloween flair to your porch and is surprisingly easy to make. Stack small pumpkins on each other, securing them with toothpicks if necessary, and place them in a decorative planter. For an extra touch, add some greenery or Fall-themed ribbon around the base of the stack.

Halloween wreaths are the perfect way to decorate your porch for Halloween. You can make your wreath using some basic craft supplies, or you can purchase one pre-made. Either way, a Halloween wreath is a must-have for any spooky porch display!

Black Ravens And White Pumpkins 

This porch decor idea is simple yet effective. All you need are some black ravens and white pumpkins. Arrange the ravens so they appear to be perched on the pumpkins, and you’re all set!

If you want to go all out, you could add some red eyes to the ravens. This will make them look even more sinister and spook any trick-or-treaters that come your way!

Skeletons At The Entrance 

Skeletons are a popular choice for Halloween porch decorations. You can buy them pre-made or make your own out of chicken wire and paper mache. Position them near the entrance to your home or hanging from the porch ceiling for a spooky effect.

Witch In The Urn

Witch in the urn is a must for your porch this Halloween! It’s super easy to make too. All you need is an urn or vase, some black paint, and fake witch legs. Once you have those things, paint the urn black and add the witch. If you want to get creative, you can add some spider webbing or other Halloween decorations to the urn. This is a great way to add a little bit of spookiness to your porch without going overboard.

Halloween Tree

This year, turn your porch into a forest of Fear with a spooky Halloween tree. Start by finding an old tree stump or piece of driftwood. Then, add some creepy crawlers like spiders and snakes. Finally, hang eerie lanterns from the branches to complete the look.

You can also buy a Halloween potted tree at the Turmeon store. 

Spooky Floating Hats

Witch hats are a Halloween classic, and what could be more spooky than a floating one? This easy DIY project is sure to frighten your guests. All you need is some black cardstock, a hot glue gun, and a bit of imagination. For example, add some bats or spiders to your hat for an extra spooky touch.

You can also buy pre-made witch hats at most party stores. Hang them from the ceiling with a clear fishing line for a floating effect.

Ghosts In A Graveyard

You can never have too many ghosts haunting your yard! This graveyard scene is easy to recreate with inexpensive Styrofoam tombstones, cheesecloth, and black paint. Cut the tombstone shapes out of the Styrofoam, then use the cheesecloth and black paint to create the spooky ghosts. Line them up on your porch for a truly haunting display!

Window Spiderweb With Dangling Spider

This is an easy decoration to make and only requires a few materials. You’ll need a black trash bag, scissors, double-sided tape, and a black spider. First, cut a large trash bag hole to fit your head through. Then, tape the bag to the window using double-sided tape. Next, cut slits around the edge of the hole to create a spiderweb effect. Finally, hang the spider from the web using string or a fishing line.

Your guests will surely get scared when they see this spooky decoration!

Halloween Yard Sign With Scary Destinations

Yard signs are a great way to decorate for Halloween without spending much money. You can buy them pre-made at your local craft store or make your own using a piece of plywood and some paint. To make your own, paint a scary scene on the plywood, such as a graveyard or a haunted house. Then, cut out the shapes of tombstones or ghosts and glue them onto the plywood. Finally, stake the plywood in your yard so everyone can see it.

Add scary destinations like “Bates Motel” or “The Haunted Mansion” to your sign for an extra spooky effect!

Add Creepy Hands Holding Lanterns

Creepy hands holding lanterns are a great way to add spooky decor to your porch this Halloween. Well, you can purchase some cheap plastic hands from your local dollar store and attach them to lanterns with a bit of hot glue. Or, if you’re feeling extra creative, you can make your own creepy hands out of paper mache or clay. Either way, these lanterns will surely add a touch of creepiness to your Halloween decor.
