Need some inspiration for your Halloween porch decor? This post is full of simple, budget friendly DIY halloween front porch ideas that are cheap (or free) and easy and that you can DIY in a weekend!
Are you team “go all out” for Halloween or are you team “just do enough for the kids”?
When it comes to Halloween porch decor I am a big fan of NOT scary Halloween decor. I fall into the category of “just do enough for the kids”. But, I don’t do gore and blood and have never turned my house into the neighborhood haunted house.
I admire the creativity of others who do, but that was never for me.
I guess I always wanted to make it a fun and cute experience for my 4 kids instead of scary. (Although all of my kids love a good haunted corn field maze at dusk.)
I usually just do Fall decor. Have you seen my cute post “Fall Into Home“? Also, check out my finds that can be on your porch in a couple of days!
I decided to DIY my front porch Halloween decorations this year and chose “black crow” for the theme.
This may just be the scariest I have ever decorated if that gives you any idea of what I mean by “not scary Halloween decor”, lol!
My porch is simple.
A black crow wreath (a gingham bow can only be so scary), a dead tree inviting crows to perch and creep with their beady little eyes as you approach the door (again, a plaid blanket doesn’t really scream scary), candles flickering in the window, and a black cat to greet you as you enter over layered, patterned rugs.
And the best part? Most of it was free!
How I decorated my porch for Halloween:
I made my tree for just a few dollars. The blanket scarf, candles an urn I already had, just repurposed.
I placed some candles at varying heights flickering in the window. I wanted to give the illusion there was more on the other side of the front door.
This cat was so easy to make and cost .97 cents!
This Halloween wreath idea may have been the most expensive item. The ribbon always gets me!
I love decorating for the seasons (Christmas is my absolute favorite, but don’t tell Fall. It comes in at a close second) and I hope this sparks some creative ideas for your front porch this Halloween season.
